Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. 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

SINPO=12111, very weak and under lots of QRN (and some QRM). Noisy conditions tonight.

115- I can make out a soft tune, and from the voice and chords, I can tell it's the same "Dear God" by XTC reported by others, but couldn't ID independently.
