I received this very unique QSL from Cool AM Radio for my reception last night.  Apparently, it is the first time he has used a mic live on air in quite a while!  

His ipod was giving problems, so he was also feeding music through the mic.  Despite this less than perfect arrangement, and ssb mode, audio was not bad!

Thanks Andre!
