Tuned in at 0303utc, fair sig with heavy static, good audio, modern pop music, RF-4900 and dipole.

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
