Tuned in at 0018utc, poor weak signal under noise, barely hear rock music,

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

0031 UTC: "Higher Ground" by Playing for Change. Listening via NA5B SDR in D.C., where the signal is fair to good with a little hiss and static.
0052 UTC: Checking back in to hear a cover of "Don't Worry, Be Happy." The audio's coming in a bit distorted now.

Nice to hear the Captain!

Captain Morgan with song Lean On Me.
Hearing signal better in LSB. under heavy static.
Songs Imagine and Everyday People.
Brief ID @ 0046 and  0050 with Twilight Zone theme music.
Big improvement  in signal, able to receive well in AM!
S/off at 0054 preceeded by Don't Worry, Be Happy with children's chorus.
Best I've heard the Captain in a long time. Thanks for the show.
