Great signal showing S9+20. Thanks for the broadcast and sorry about the audio problems.

Op trying to clear up audio issues with music sounding great. Said he is an extra class operator, and ID'ed the station.
And more problems.

S9 @ 0007 with "I Don't Care Anymore", occasional audio trouble.
0115 - S9+, sounding very good other than the occasional audio issue

Thanks for the Monday night show!

Fix the audio problems dude. It make you look unprofessional.

SINPO:33333 via Uniontown, PA 

You are good but you that audio processor has been acting up over and over for a while. And you do have good music.

Didn't hear anything around 0012, but tuned back at 0017 to hear OM speaking, into "Rocky Mountain Way" Joe Walsh at 0018. Good signal here. Thanks for the show!
0022 OM on the mic, talking about how Joe Walsh is a ham radio operator (which I knew, WB6ACU is his call)
0023 "Roll On Down the Highway" Bachman Turner Overdrive
0027 OM on the mic
0028 "Come and Get Your Love" Redbone
0033 OM on the mic
0036 "These Eyes" The Guess Who
0039 OM on the mic
0041 "I'm Your Captain/Closer to Home" (medley) Grand Funk Railroad
0045 "Against the Wind" Bob Seger
0048 OM on the mic, still having technical issues apparently. Station ID
0049 "Dust in the Wind" Kansas
0050 guess that was a test, the op's back on the mic. Says he's going to call it for the night. Is working on an SSTV for qsl purposes. Maybe it will be ready next time
0051 "Angie" The Rolling Stones"
0055 "Hair of the Dog" Nazareth (always thought it was funny that the same band that wrote this tough guy stuff also sang "Love Hurts")
0057 OM on the mic
0100 "Foreplay/Long Time" Boston
0107 OM on the mic, talking about his issues again, mentioned he's a former broadcast engineer
0110 shoutouts I think, mentioning my report. Yes, I'm hearing you directly in the mile high city. Using an Icom IC-7100 and a G5RV inverted V dipole with the apex up about 33'. It's a pretty darn good rx antenna.
0112 "Don't Look Back" Boston
0117 OM on the mic
0120 "Holy Diver" Dio
0124 song cut out. Mojo Nixon started up shortly after but apparently that's from a new station. Thanks for the show!

No definitive sign of a signal out west here (see below for the updated information). But I found a good, strong signal via the Warrenton, Virginia, SDR ...

0017: OM announcer talking about equipment power problems.
0018: "Rocky Mountain Way" by Joe Walsh.
0022: OM talking about Joe Walsh apparently being an amateur radio operator, his continuing broadcast problems. Mentions his lunch is about ready.
0023: "Roll on Down the Highway" by BTO.
0027: OM host says he thinks the problem's in the pre-amp, talking to his wife a bit, other chatting.
0028: "Come and Get Your Love" by Redbone. This song's now making it directly through my speaker here near Seattle; just barely audible, but the signal's there!
0033: OM (over 60, he says) talking a bit more talk about his technical glitch, talking about John Wayne and James Arness, about self-isolating, etc. I'm still listening via the Virginia SDR, but I can hear bits of the chatting directly here.
0035: "These Eyes" by The Guess Who.
0039: OM feeling better about his technical glitches, chatting into the start of "I'm Your Captain/Closer to Home" by Grand Funk Railroad. The music's still coming up on my radio directly out here, but it's fading out longer in between audible bits, so I'm also still listening via the SDR.
0044: OM called himself "Captain Midnight," a bit more technical chatting into "Against the Wind" by Bob Segar & the Silver Bullet Band.
0048: More chatting about technical problems, which seem to be more audible now. Then "Dust in the Wind" by Kansas. The OM cut into the song and said he's going to shut down due to his technical problems, then plays "Angie" by The Rolling Stones.
0055: Quick switch to "Hair of the Dog" by Nazareth. Then more OM chatting, then back to the Nazareth song.
0058: OM chatting again, talks about QSL cards. His mic audio's getting a bit fuzzier, then into "Foreplay/Long Time" by Boston.
0108: OM chatting about technical problems ... giving HFU shout-outs, then "Don't Look Back" by Boston.
0117: OM back on the mic. The chatting's now nearly at readable levels on my own receiver out here. "Virus 19 Radio off the air now" ... then chats a bit more and goes out with "Catch you tomorrow night, baby, if the ship hasn't sunk by then." Then "Holy Diver" by Dio to off at 0124 UTC.

Thanks for the music!

0038  "These eyes," OM talk about choosing the music himself (usually YL helps,) station making it to the UK,"I'm your captain," talks about still having station problems, "Running against the wind," music ends before the song does, announcer comes on & talks about the problem and having a problem, "Dust in the wind."

Sounds OK to me, not sure what they expect for SSB audio from a typical unmodified ham rig, which is likely what is being used.
