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

Ballsmacker id at 0128 just strong enough to id on an r108 portable.  "Baby come back" at present.  Solid on very brief peaks.
0145-ish Coldplay "sky full of stars"
0149 Backstreet Boys? A mess of interfering signals now.

Thanks for the show!
