Tuned in at 2324utc, low atmospheric noise, weak but readable signal, spacey pop music, R-2000 & dipole.

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
