Not even a trace of 6950 signal on Denton Hill kiwi in Fenton, MI. Wolverine used to have a local-AM quality signal there, and I received him nicely this summer on a DX440 on my kitchen table with the whip. The signal in the nearer-field is just plain gone now. I have no idea if the op reads these posts or not, but if you changed anything since summer, it *really* hurt your nearer-field pattern.

I can just barely hear audio on 4015 now on Denton Hill, but still nothing visible yet.

S7 into the Mojave Desert of California just as the SSTV started.  Sounded good on the house sound system, had it on for about 30 minutes before the SSTV went.  Thanks Wolverine!

(edit)  Heard the change to 4015 kHz.  On 4015 kHz just a little weaker, only about S6, but still decent.

Had pretty good copy on 6950, heard some Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers with Shadow People.  Also caught parts of the SSTV, and mention of QSY'ing to 4015.

0040z 4015 USB About S8 here, was stronger on 6950 for me with about S9.  On with 'Testing 1 2 3 can Anyone hear me.'
0045z sounds like Billy Holiday.  Per shazam, 'God Bless The Child'
0053z Kitty Kallen 'My heart belongs to Daddy'

Coming through fairly well on 4015 -- I had heard nothing at all earlier on 6950.
0130Z - Signal has really picked up, now excellent.  Thanks for the show!

Very good Wolverine Radio signal at the moment measuring S9 and flickering S9+10 at times. Nice tunes but tstorm static will probably ruin any SSTVs. Thanks for the broadcast.

Was very difficult on 6950 earlier. Thank you for changing to 4015 - romping into the UK now!
