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

0116 "Gloria"
0119 "Joline Begging You Please"


Signal is S5-S7.   Some QSB and QRM.   Signal is less readable than Wolverine Radio....but at times a S9 signal for 2-3 seconds.
Equipment is an IC-7300 using a G5RV diople up 40 feet.   Location is Winfield, IN (Crown Point, IN). ....on a cold 18F winter night....a far cry from my old home in California where it is 60F.
