Tuned in locally at 0209utc, weak noisy signal, barely hear old pop tune that has telephone ringing side tone at beginning (telephone line by ELO), at 0219 "Wichita lineman" by Glenn Campbell,

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
