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

Tuned in via the Northern Utah SDR while "New Sky" by Rufus du Sol's still playing at 2344 UTC.

Weak but audible signal via that SDR, though there's an interference whine that's annoying!

2345 UTC: Redhat on the mic with the time, etc., before "Blur" by M0.
2349 UTC: Redhat with intro into The Clash's "London Calling." (I'm always happy to hear more Clash songs on shortwave!)
2352 UTC: Redhat on mic, pauses to stop the turntable, goes over previously played songs, gives email, HFU shoutouts and more.
0000 UTC: IDs and then, after a technical difficulty, "Seven" by Revis.
0027 UTC: Just tuned back in as "Barracuda" by Heart started. Signal's a bit better now via Northern Utah, but that interference whine's still there. No audible signal heard directly at my place.
0031 UTC: ID into "When is the Future?" by VNV Nation.
0036 UTC: Redhat back on mic, mentioning previous songs and doing HFU shoutouts.
0040 UTC: ID, into requested "Before I Die" by Mushroomhead.
0124 UTC: Just tuned in again, this time directly from here in Lake Stevens on both my radio and the K9VD SDR down the road. At this hour, the signal's now audible; just barely, but it's there!
0202 UTC: Signal right here in Lake Stevens is getting better as it gets later here; I can hear Redhat's voice over the background music and it's fully readable at times. Still an annoying interference whine here.
0204 UTC: "Whiter Shade of Pale" by Procol Harem.
