0135z  strong AM into nw wa.  lots of qrn now, but an outstanding signal.  nice..  thanks whoever you are!

0222z  now that i'm out of the central us thunderstorm skip zone i have a quiet band and it's a good signal...  good modulation, s9, and no fades.  wabc@yahoo.com...  pretty strange...

0340z  still cranking out a stellar signal here.  starting to hear thunderstorm qrn again but the signal is still above it.  i keep looking at my receiver to make sure i haven't accidentally tuned into a local AMer..

0415z  still going...  is this an aircheck of wabc?  russ knight was a well known dj...  gone now...
