I wonder If they QSL ?

If they do, the cards would be pretty cheap and flimsy.

Off at ~2240? UTC, after this (predictable) waterfall image:

SINPO=12111 (with Ute QRN right on top of signal)

Was hearing faint music, off and on, from 2231 until about 2242, but couldn't ID anything.

Thanks for The Blue Light Special, and hope to hear you more clearly another time!

I had buddy who was a regional manager for K-Mart in the Philly area. They had a real problem with the homeless taking a squat in those circular displays of clothes.

I don't know if it was just a Philly thing or the entire northeast coast?

"Thank you for watching your step at K-Mart."
