Weak, S2 to S3, but the signal may be starting to get better. OK in ECSS mode most of the time, with some deep fades. ID at 1445z, into more music.

Antennas and propagation are odd things.

That was a sloper going to my N.E. I may as well have been pointing it your house Chris.  Meanwhile,Zane who is off beam gets a nice signal.

That was the same show you heard the other day Zane. I think you got REM's "Bad Day" confused with INXS "Suicide Blonde"? At the power I run it's a miracle the music gets ID'ed at all.
