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 Ball Smacker on the air with yet another Wolverine style "Theme" program.
Caught the end of a Neil Young tune with a decent  S9 signal but reception got weak and
noisy in a few minutes. Too bad, you was sounding really good there for a few minutes Ball Smacker.
S5 signal now with really bad static crashes. I'll check back.

0128 All but in the noise now BS, too bad, always good music.

Thanks for the music!
