S7 with some fades here with old Interval Signals and ID's.

0023 - "Lion's Den" Eve6
0026 - Robin Hood Radio ID.  Oops, misheard the ID.  Brownie Radio.
0110 - still there (had faded way down for a while but back now) with "There She Goes"
0119 - operator asking if anyone is still listening, and since no requests he is playing some old Cypress Hill, then into "Insane In The Brain", S5

S9 signal into St. Louis, MO area, SIO=454. Just a little fading and occasional distant lightning static , but overall one of the better signals I have heard in this frequency range in quite a while. Great audio.
Started listening on my Icom IC-706MKIIG and Cross Country Wireless mag loop 36" off the ground.
Just switched to the Sony ICF-2010 and much better signal - almost local broadcast quality.

0133z - Rap music
0138z - Another rap song
0141z - Announcer says he's going to play one more
0156z - Brownie Radio ID. Happy 4th! (Signal now SIO = 555. Can't get much better than that).
