Typically CRUSHING signal into northern Canada this afternoon. About 4 hours earlier then usual. Always GREAT to hear an old friend!

Next weeks contest: guess how many Volkswagons can fit in Joy Behars mouth. I pick five.

About S2 here in the Boston burbs at 0011 UTC (12/29). Very high local QRN on this frequency (probably Christmas lights).

About S4 here with very little fading, clear audio, Roy Orbison "Falling" at 0015z.  Some CW interference from 6933 but nothing the notch filter can't take care of.  ID at 0028z.

Nice musical selection, thanks RTN!

I was only getting a carrier here, but then fiddled with my settings and managed to pull in faint audio!  0110 faint music, then did I hear the op talking?  Amazed I heard anything at all!  The noise level is ridiculously high here, and if it's RFI related, it's not me.  I honestly think my neighbors across the alley have a plasma TV or something, good gosh. 

I've been trying to hear RTN for months, and I finally caught a trace of you!  :)
