Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. 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

Fair signal staying above the noise northeast of Seattle ...

0010 UTC: "Proud Mary" by Credence Clearwater Revival.
0012 UTC: Another classic rock song. Might be hearing some peskie interference here.
0014 UTC: Another song, then ID by OM announcer at 0016, followed by CCR's "As Long as I Can See the Light." Still interference by what sounds like maybe another station rather than peskies.
0018 UTC: Another ID: "W.O.W.L. ... The Owl." Then "The Rising of the Moon" by Peter, Paul & Mary.
0021 UTC: "That's right, you're in tune with the old owl, W.O.W.L." ID. Then beginning of CCR's "Bootleg," followed by "Bad Moon Rising."
0023 UTC: ID again into "Early Mornin' Rain" by Peter, Paul & Mary, then CCR's "What Are You Gonna Do."
0026 UTC: OM with ID again, then a long silence until "Back of My Mind" by Louise Taylor.
0030 UTC: "Catch Your Kisses" by Louise Taylor.

Station underneath is right now just an OM repeating an ID over and over.

Thanks to The Owl for the music!

SINPO=54554, perfect (just some intermittent QRM) and booming in!

016- "As Long As I Can See The Light" by CCR.
017- OM quickly IDs "WOWL, The Owl."
017- "The Rising of the Moon" by Peter, Paul and Mary.
020- OM IDs, "That's right, you're in tune with the old owl, WOWL."
021- Soft song starts (or background station) for a few seconds, then "Bad Moon Rising" by CCR.
