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=23222 at best, with deep fades.

046- "Riders in the Sky" by The Outlaws. (Lost signal by 048).
051- Hearing "Train, Train" by Blackfoot.
(Signal at SINPO=34322 at 053, having climbed back from a deep fade).
054- OM IDs "This is Man Cave Radio."
054- "Simple Man" by The Charlie Daniels Band.
058- "Ripple" by Grateful Dead.
102- OM speaking, but can't copy, as signal has faded. Sounds like a recorded clip perhaps?
103- "Tumbling Dice" by Rolling Stones.
Lost signal under QRN from about 104-107.
107- "Lord, Mr. Ford" by Jerry Reed.
110- Off.
111- Back. OM IDs. Recorded clips, like "Let's get ready to rumble!"
112- "Summer Breeze" by Seals and Croft.
116- "Summertime" by Billy Stewart. Then either off, or I lost him at 116.

Can hear a very faint signal, but too deep in the noise floor to make out any copy.
Just a boy with his radio and some wire.
