Heard here at 23:37 with Wake Up Sunshine/Chicago (when they were good). Nice signal with minimal noise and mostly absent fading.
2339 - Feelin' Stronger Everyday.
2343 - OM with "Worldwise" ID. Then into Questions 67 and 68.

Thank you WTF for playing this true classic music (Chicago before they went MOR) that so-called "Classic Rock" FM stations won't play.

2348 - Lowdown. Signal continues to cut through the moderate noise.
0004 - Where Do We Go From Here
0052 - My Sweet Lord - George (still a killer signal)
0056 - The Kinks: All Day and All of the Night

Waterfall trace and modulation of music, but it is largely in the noise floor. Local band conditions are rough right now. Hopefully propagation here will improve later tonight.

Regardless, and as usual, thanks for the broadcast! :)

Tuned in at 2345utc on Barrington Hills IL sdr, weak S3 signal, barely hear audio under the low noise level,
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

Signal is coming in despite tonight being a bit noisy. The audio is pretty good considering distance, etc. Thanks a lot for the broadcast. Really good to catch your station.

Unk song, possibly English. No idea who the band/artist is.
