Tuned in at 2340utc, very weak with low noise, barely hear slow singing,

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

SDR recording catch, program started at 2306 with WTF ID into songs listed. This was in double sideband mode, not simply USB, until 2311 UTC, making the switch at the station ID heard then. I had it at 6960.017 kHz, thanks to a helpful carrier that appeared briefly at 2306 before the audio kicked in. Signal was fair with some good peaks. Thanks for the show!
