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

SDR recording catch. 0031 sign on, generally an SIO 333 at first and 222 by the end, but some peaks to 444 or even 555. Very iffy propagation last night between Radio Illuminati and here.
Off at 0224.
