You're welcome! Out of interest,  how much power are you using and what type of antenna, my friend?

2130 UTC Carrier noted already here with just an occasional hint of audio at threshold
2140 UTC There is also a weak carrier on 7727 khz, so I had to switch to LSB for Zeppelin. Still a bit early but I can hear hints of music real low in the noise

Hi Zeppelin Radio! Sunset here on the East Coast is 2349 UTC, so grayline reception is still a ways off....I'll be checking in until I can ID some songs!  :)

Hi Ether Hacker! He's made it into the east coast here a few times already! At least twice with a fairly good signal too!

2221 UTC "Ode to Billie Joe"Bobbie Gentry  :)
2235 UTC "The Weight"-The Band
(Reception conditions not very good today.....signal is hanging right at the noise floor)
2245 UTC "Crimson and Clover"-Tommy James & Shondells
2250 UTC "Jennifer Eccles"-Hollies
2256 UTC "Something's Happening"-Hermans Hermits
2307 UTC Maybe OM talking now....tough copy here
(Signal is buried in the noise now....not much chance of hearing more  :( )

Thanks for the broadcast today Zeppelin Radio!
