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

Pee Wee Radio, 6924.7 USB, 0203 - 0222, 7/4/16.  Motown and other music played without interruption.  Last song was Pee Wee's favorite.  CW ID at the end and off.

Good here.
