A solid S9 here, and I never hear RFW, so props are good right now.

S9 +20 on the transmit antenna.

SIO 444 at 2354z. I'll take the portable outside and see if I can listen while grilling dinner (chicken leg quarters). I should take a picture for DJ Dickweed to salivate over  ;D

Dinner is ready! (The darker piece has a spice rub. And I could hear you with the Sony 7600G out on the deck)

2356 Very weak and buried under my friend, the local QRM thing that's always at 6941. Remind me to ask you to avoid this frequency, if it's not an inconvenience. Will stay tuned. :)
Dang, sorry I missed Deerhoof. They're a terrific group.
0019 signal starting to gain strength, I can hear the comrades talking
0119 Signal has had some nice swells, but still largely at or below the noise floor. Still an hour til sunset here.
0129 Comrades on the mic
0145 comrades. Getting to the point that I can understand you guys! Soon you'll overwhelm the QRM.
0146 shoutouts
0147 "Goodbye Enemies, Hello Friends" The Little Kicks
0158 "The Last Trumpeter Swan" Deerhoof - Thanks comrades!
       0201 signal is 4 kHz wide here
       0206 I forgot that this was a long song... :-[

Since it's now a usable copy, can I request Deerhoof "The Last Trumpeter Swan"? Thanks!

0238 Hearing the comrades again
0304 music
0306 DJDW on the mic

Short ID into "Fight the Power" at 2357z. Averaging S6 with strong modulation. Some static crashing and occasional interference, but still an armchair copy.

Thanks for the broadcast and shoutout! :)
