About S1 here, ECSS locking coming and going. May be a bit too early for me to get NAm on 19 meters.

Just tuned in. Good signal in Illinois. S7 or so. ID at 1605 by Dr. Benway.

Heard a shoutout to Skeezix.

1609 Shoutout to me. Thanks Doc!

1612 10 watts? What a signal for that power level! Check out web page at

1615 Talk about hooking up audio equipment to a night vision scope and pointing it at the sky, philosophizing on the sounds from the stars.. This sounds awfully familiar, like a discussion I heard by Dr. Benway many years ago in a broadcast that I think took place from Jamaica.

1720 Sign-off with shoutouts to me and everyone else posting here at HFU. Thanks again for the show Dr. Benway!

I caught Undercover Radio briefly on 15050 via a web tuner in Euroland, but don't recall which - probably either Cumbria DX or Dokken - while tuning around for Euro ops this weekend.  Seemed to peak briefly and then tanked along with everything else in the 15 MHz zone after 1600z or 1700z, not watching the time carefully today.
