Unid station with fair signal but noisy conditions.
No ID heard yet.
Caught clear ID @ 2100 mentioning about coming on a bit early to play more music.
Coming in much stronger @ 2115 but still high noise floor.

Tuned in at 2129utc, weak sig, tinny audio, old pop tune from late 60's or early 70's.
(edit) Just heard DJ = Dick Weed read my post on the air.

Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. 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

 ;D A happy report, clear and 444 reception Cherokee Hill.
  Wanted to thank you for keeping radio for People, no governments and corporations. :-X
 Just said he is wrapping it up at 2300Z.
The audio is actually stronger and better than two AM ers here because maybe you are using a studio compressor? Keeps the sN high.
I am staying with SSB here because it just give more signal per watt and does the POND jump well.
Thanks for show, Matey
SDR says BW is out to a respectable 3.5 KHz !
