Channel Z doing well in NH tonight, S8 and staying nicely above the noise

2146z ID - Tribute to punk rockers who have passed on
2158z ID - Down to S6 but still above the noise
2212z Faded way way down into the noise, only hearing a bit of music now and then

He played "Dead Pop Stars" by Altered Images.  Can't get more topic-specific than that, eh?

Great sounding S7 signal here in NC.

Recorder Catch

Can see from the Strength History that Z has been in around S7-S8 here.  Heard a bit of audio live and sounding good here.

Thanks Channel Z!
