Tuned in at 0118utc, poor/weak, hear woman singing, have it on 6976.13 and slowly rising in freq, R8 & dipole.
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

Hear an occasional voice pop out of the static but wouldn't have known it was there with any certainty.

Started out quite strong but has faded to just above the noise @ 0129 with music.
0137 - signal up to S7, but static crashes increasing too.  "You and Me" by Disclosure
0140 - "Royals" by Lorde

Hearing bits of music popping out of the noise here at a S6 at 0153. Carrier showing up on the waterfall but that is about it. Bummer :-\
Signal picking up a bit to a S7 and music sounding a little better at 0202! Thanks BBR! :)
