Spaceman putting a good signal here into Boston. About S5-S6, some fading, but a nice clear frequency. Meat Loaf at 2237z.

Just tuned in about 0025. Haven't heard an ID yet, but assume it's still Spaceman. Really nice signal here, probably up around S7-S8 or so.

I've heard Spaceman now for the third night in a row, this evening has been the best reception.  Sounding very good here, steady S6 with hardly any UTE interference.  Shout-outs to Corq and Kilokat7 with music and talk about Frankenmuth, MI.  0139 utc - Op excited about USA reception, thanking listeners.  Nice show Spaceman - thanks!

Update: 0305 utc - signal just gets better and better - still booming here with music by U2 and frequent talk over songs "I can see the tubes glowing and doing their work.  It's very very nice."  Good stuff tonight from Euroland!

S4 and deep in the QRM. It's easier to copy the euro pirate on 6300. SINPO 22222. I can't really make anything out at this time.
Actually signal is up and down now, about S4-S5 but still significant fading. Voice easier to copy than music.

Anywhere from S nothing (into the noise) to S8 peaks. But man there is plenty of fast & furious fading. Conditions the same off the loop or dipole.

4/9/12, 3:25+ UTC, hearing song with whistling in it, now at 3:26 song "You're simply the best, you're better than all the rest", signal SIO 212 heavy static and some UTE QRM - but signal still readable.
