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=34333, pretty darn solid, especially for a stormy night.

149- Instrumental music with electric guitar and strong drum beats (by 154, finally some OM vocals and it's clearly "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by Iron Butterfly).
156- "Gemini Dream" by The Moody Blues.
200- "White Room" by Cream.
205- "Isn't Life Strange" by The Moody Blues (yep, sure is!)

Thanks for the transmission and show!
