0021  Game People Play.  Tuned-in at 0016.  45343.  Thunderboomers.  Background noise varies greatly.  ID @ 0020.  Sounds best at 6 Khz, but, in quieter conditions, I think there is more there.

I have it here with a fair/good signal depending on static crashes.  Playing a MoTown song I think.  Thanks for the show.

tuned in at 0035utc on Barrington Hills IL sdr with poor S7 to S9 signal, then at 0037 utc on St.-Michel-des-Saints QC with fair but noisy S9 to S9+15 signal, song: "hey baby they're singing our song",
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
