but, its only 1559 UTC Now
 1602 Z - Just about at noise floor at Telegraph Pole 001.
  Mild amount of carrier FM ing.. but that's O.K. I'll stay on listening, but at the distance not much hope of getting better while sun is up. Using New WEEDsDOM antenna.. we call the  Wigwam Special. Skipmuck will know what Weed antenna are?
  Happy New Ion and hope the force will be with all New Years Eve. We have to bury one and change the diaper on another.

I am familiar with the WINDOM off center fed antenna! I think a WEEDOM is what the neighborhood grow operation down the street is using to create voluminous amounts of RFI in my NRD...... :o
