Scott,
Thanks for the report...I saw your report and decided to check the band here in Colorado "dead as a door nail".

Now that's really a cool receiver and I bet a lot of fun to listen on.

PLM would be a new one for me...Come back often with your reports.

GNK   13564   339   (RST)
WV    13556   559   Strong signal

C       13528   339   QSB
D       13528   449   Steady
S       13528   349   QSB

Allied A-2515 receiver and 20m inverted vee at 25ft.

Unfortunately work tends to get in the way of my Ham/SWL activities & the A-2515 blew a cap in the power supply. Wax paper & aluminum foil everywhere. Still for a $20 hamfest find it's a pretty good receiver up to ~15mc. Great LW & 160m receiver.
