Dang, you keep beating me to the posting. I can hear it stronger on 6950 then I could  on 6925 but not sure if it's a relay from a different location or just that conditions have improved.
BTW there's pescadores on 6930 having a very lively discussion. THEY are killer strong into northern Canada tonite.
Please QSL to MaplRadio@gmail.com

Next weeks contest: guess how many Volkswagons can fit in Joy Behars mouth. I pick five.

If Rosie O'Donnell jumps in the water Rosie doesn't get wet, the water gets ugly.

Yep, hear the pescadores on LSB. Too bad I don't speak Spanish.
