I tuned in around 1515 and stayed until the show ended.  What a delightful broadcast!  Signal was absolutely booming into southeastern Wisconsin's marshland, SIO 545 give or take.  I'm hoping the signal stays as strong over the next few days as it was today.  I'm home for the holidays, so I'm going to try to get one or both parents to listen to a smidgeon of a show.

I didn't know about 21600 at the time. I was listening to the 15470 show at the same time with a nice signal
