Tuned in at 2359utc, weak but clear with very quiet background, heard RFW ID, R-2000 & dipole.
(edit) At 0018 heard DJ=Dick Weed talk about getting pulled over for going 45 in a 35 zone.

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
