Yes, small signal into the state of West Virginia, about 125-km. west-northwest of Washington, D.C. Weak but steady carrier on exactly 6630.0 noted at 2025 UTC, but modulation fading in and out, mostly out I am afraid. But it seemed between rock music, about every 5 minutes, the DJ was speaking. 2049-1/2 UTC, I heard him say "Snowball, Snowball, Snowball." Lost the modulation about 2055, and lost the carrier right around 2100 UTC. QSL-reply would be very great! Best e-mail is avranesjr (at) hotmail (dot) com

Excellent test this!

Heard the whole hour here in Pietarsaari (Jakobstad in my language). Not strong but OK. Very clear sound and good english when talking. Harder to identify the songtitles...heh...

Thanks everybody involved!!!
