S7 and pretty good copy, noise settling down some.  A few deep fades though.

0134 Unheard-of S9 signal in Denver, although the noise floor is part of that. Still, dayum.
0137 "Over My Shoulder" by Mike + The Mechanics
0140 "In The Air Tonight" Phil Collins
0145 "Tonight Tonight Tonight" Genesis
0153 noise has gotten very bad, no longer sure what music is playing
0155 "I Can't Dance" Genesis
        Signal has been very strong with S9+20 peaks, but a lot of interference on band. SINPO 52253
0158 OM with ID and email, neither quite of which I could catch with the noise. The music accompanying it sounded like something from The Blues Brothers, though
0159 "Signal to Noise" Peter Gabriel
         noise rolling in and out like the tide, but still S9 + 20 when clear. Some annoying ute of some sort intrudes from time to time
0206 "Nomads" Steve Hackett
0211 "Everyday" Steve Hackett
0218 "Deja Vu" Steve Hackett
0224 new song, but noise is not letting shazam pull it out. Guessing it's Steve Hackett again.
0231 Genesis "Hearts On Fire"

Thanks for the Genesis-themed show! It makes me wonder what the first track you played was [EDIT I wonder no more, refmo says it was a Tony Banks song]

Reception at 0139: https://youtu.be/Bu8uQHj9_tA

Had to leave shortly after 0230 because I have late night plans. Thanks again for the show!

Tuned in at 0213utc, poor/weak with static. 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
