I've got the same 2k Hz whistle as John Poet (but I'm only a few miles from him) -- easily notched

Tuned in at 2300 in Williamston MI  3+4+44+3+ (ALMOST O=4) Sounds nice with the bandwidth opened
up to 4 kHz ....

73 and thanks for the show  --Zichi MI
DXing *either* from:
MI -- South Central Lower Michigan with a 25 m randomwire and a LOT of local noise!
or
MI2 -- the tip of Michigan's Thumb with a 100 metre longwire and much quieter conditions.  Radios can be either an SPR-4 or IC-R71A or SDRplay

QSLs appreciated! radioguy73@gmail.com

Good signal on a fairly quiet band with some fading. Thanks for the broadcast.

Me and my big fat enter finger. Now the signal is almost unreadable. SIGH!

 Listening to you from a DXpediton in Murray Harbour North, Prince Edward Island.

Noted announcer talking about "Teenage Dirtbag" by Weetus at 2323 UTC.

Decent signal.

Started recording about 2310 with S7 signal, then left to do the dishes.

Came back at 2328 to music, Dickweed talking about music he played, going vegan, etc. ID, then signal dropped out.  I don't think the program ended, just the propagation.
