Hearing it now, weak but it is (barely) there.

Thanks for putting it on the air!

1947z update: The signal strength just came up. S4 to S5 on peaks now.

Just tuned in and am hearing at 2315 utc, in northern UT.  Not real strong and with some QSB at the moment.

Happy Thanksgiving all!

Nice clean signal peaking at about S4 here in the Triangle region of NC.  Antenna for best signal is an unterminated random chunk of wire about 500 ft long pointing north.
