Good signal with only a little storm noise via NA5B near Washington, D.C.

2242 UTC: Instrumental music, then OM saying "You're tuned to The Quacker ... K.W.A.K."
2246 UTC: OM with ID again. "Quack, quack, we're back." Then another rock instrumental.
2258 UTC: Instrumental rock continuing as WBCQ signs on 5130 kHz and provides some interference.
2300 UTC: "Black Woods" by Stoned Jesus. Can still hear the WBCQ interference.
2301 UTC: OM with ID as "Found God in a Tomato" by Psychedelic Porn Crumpets starts.
2302 UTC: Music suddenly stopped, signal off.
* * *
Now on 5119 USB ...

2311 UTC: "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)" by The Jimi Hendrix Experience.

SINPO=34232, but improving I believe.

2334- "Copperhead Road" by Steve Earle.
2338- "No I In Beer" by Brad Paisley, but then it stops and OM says something briefly.
2339- Lost signal or off?

All reception direct.
QTH 70 miles north of Boston.
Currently running my trusty rusty 1980s portable with about 140 feet of wire thrown up in the trees.
