Slight signal heard here. Noise floor is about S7, and R. Olah is a little above that sometimes. Thanks for the afternoon broadcast. Wish I could give you more info.

At my noise level - only hearing the signal sparingly. 111

1952 - signal popped up enough to make out Dexy's Midnight Runners, Geno
2000 - Flamin' Groovies, Shake Some Action
2002 - signal popped up a little more - now 222
2004 - ID (om), "Radio Olah, how is my audio" (audio is fine - a bit lower than the music but readable when your signal jumps above the noise level)
2007 - Unit Four Plus Two, Concrete And Clay
2008 - James Gang, Walk Away
2011 - Ruby Don't Take Your Love To Town
2014 - (om) said this was his favorite cover song (by Cake) / then said something about a black helicopter flying overhead
2015 - another deep fade or signed off?

Thanks for the show. Happy holidays
