S1 signal, low noise levels, so fair overall.

At best, an S1, but mostly I can't copy it. Pretty sure I may have heard an ID at 1830z, and then some kind of TV show theme song, but I kind of suck at identifying those...

Complete fade outs, coming up only occasionally. I believe I heard a couple of male-voiced computer IDs around 2101. 15080 kHz.

Thanks for the show!

Have them here in Iowa on the FT-2000. With preamps off, they're peaking at about an S5 but with some deep fades.

Kate Bush, Running up that hill (great tune)

Our antenna system is being directed to you. Radio true north ID followed by dance track about UFOs.

Thanks for the show!

Peaking at S5 now (!!) in the Boston burbs. Very fast propagation change. Techno music (which I like). Thanks RTN>
