Much noise

0030z  Two OM's talking, can not make out conversation.
0035z  Very clear now, pretty blue conversation.  2-3 OM's sound a little incoherent.  I think I'm done monitoring here.

Tuned in at 0115utc, weak sig with some static, heard end of song "blue bayou", now hear woman singing "hot time in the city" (?not sure of title?), RF-4900 and 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

 Fairly good signal here in Central Savannah River Area of South Carolina hearing Reunited at 01:21UTC no ID yet! 10 over 9 some static issues! "Boogie" at 01:25UTC. Heard Radio Free Whatever Relay Network at 01:45UTC tonight! Signal has dropped here in the past 5 minutes can still hear the music but nowhere near the power as it was earlier!

0138 Soviet national anthem and station by DJ Dickweed, Radio Free Whatever. NRD-545 shows a S1 signal but great sound with low noise tonight. Have a tree trimming company coming tomorrow morning so my antennas are laying on the ground out of the way (I hope). Great selection of songs DJ, thanks.

Catching it here also at 0139 with DJ Dickweed talking about his internet stream and playing the band "Nothing" at 0142. Signal is a S7-8 and audio good but with lots of fading also. Most likely a relay of RFW. Just said this is "The Radio Free Whatever Relay Network" at 0146.

WOW! I don't know who's doing the relaying but it sounds great here! S9 with excellent audio. Thank you for relaying this whoever it is.Oh and don't forget to get your Radio Free Whatever T shirts before time runs out.

Hey Jim-MN this isn't a live show. Its a relay of a MixLR show I did a week or so ago. Otherwise I'd be happy to play your request.

03:23 and some deep fades but still holding at S9!
03:29 S5 now and dropping, but fighting hard
03:58 S5 and getting easier to hear. noise is going down.
04:34 and it's back up at s9???? like HOW? Live and Horse coming through clear as a bell
