Hearing here in NE MA since 0133 with OM talk, but fair-weak with LOTS of noise, though sometimes the noise fades out and a mild signal is evident. Music at 0139: Rock w/OM vocals. Too much noise at my QTH! :'(

Sounds great into Southeast Nebraska tonight, 20 over S-9 on both my Kenwood R-1000, and an Icom 720a. Using a 60' longwire up 20'. Great programming, really polished. Obvious this isn't your first rodeo...I appreciated the new tracks from AC-DC as well....if you get a wild hair...."I am the God of Hellfire" from "the Crazy World of Arthur Brown"... lol... that would be a nice twist...
Kenwood R-1000 and a 65' longwire... also an Icom 720a, hell of a receiver...  portable is a Sony ICF6500W, one of the best portables ever built...and various Trans-O's, Strato-worlds, etc...
