Weak signal, hearing music but deep in noise floor.
Unable to get clear copy at the moment (0055).
Can barely hear music in the static plus intermittent  uteoò0 QRN .

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

0149 tuning in to "Dirty Boots" Sonic Youth, SIO about 222 unfortunately but probably the strongest signal I've had from XLR8 in a long time. Will check the recording later, but glad to hear you again! :)

0155 somemusic heard, but with a bad loc noise on 6957, I'm short of tricks.
That noise is from a switching PSU with some wobbling.

+/- : about 0.02 offset, ++/-- 0.03/0.04 offset
