434 via Elida, OH sdr; very clear audio with shoutouts.  Needs quite a bit more cash for that transmitter!
2145 Stay Disappointed Wax Chattels

2157 Lavender Night
2201 Getting RF feedback, checking antenna
2202 Shoutout to me.  Cool :)
2205 "Radio Free Whatever" ID and "Falling into Pieces"
2209 Getting much noisier "Call Me" Kyle Craft
2210 Barely audible above noise
2217 & 2221 Continues almost indecipherable, bummer
I enjoyed the show, thanks Dick Weed!
