Steady S7 signal here.  Played Death Cab for Cutie song [I think] @ 0026z.
Some minor QRM from pescs on LSB.
Sounds like they need a little more carrier power in the signal.
Played 'Crystalised by the xx @ 0029z, followed by ID's and email address...

Said this was their first show of the year, although I heard them on last night for a few minutes (playing Modest Mouse song @ 0050 last night)

Nice selection of music - thanks for the show!

Checked the SDR recording, all I have is a somewhat weak carrier here in Maine.  Band probably too long.  I have also had ridiculous noise levels here the last 4 or so days (s6-s7 at times)
Now listening on an Afedri SDR with a 450 ft Sky Loop
