Been tuned to 6970 USB since 2157 UTC and nothing here yet :(
I have a fairly high local noise level at the moment...maybe it will clear up ???
2235 UTC Still nothing here....I am getting a weak carrier which I assume is the Sound of Hope/Radio Free Asia...
(I think the problem is that DimBulb has a killer antenna that captures all the signal in a 500 mile radius...LOL ;D)
2245 UTC I have some threshold audio at the moment :)
2246 UTC OM talking then music at noise level
2252 UTC Music again now for a bit, but too weak to copy

Thanks for trying IBC! No joy in the hills overlooking Poor Brook 8)
