Tuned in at 0029utc, very weak under low noise, hear SSTV/FAX then rock music,
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

Strong signal @ 0040 with techno rock.
SSTV @ 0046 but wasn't ready for it.  Back into techno.
Big jump in static levels; copy bit more difficult.
SSTV image with Skippy Radio.
Numerous  SSTVs but most have very grainy copy here.
Off @ 0102.
