Catching the start up of XFM on 6285 here at my QTH at 0247 with several IDs mentioned. "XFM Now On The Air" at 0249 into Channel Z by the B-52's. Signal is a S8-9 and audio excellent as always! Thanks for the show this evening Redhat! Looking forward to it! :) Can I request a tune from Enigma of your choosing? Thanks again! :) Also hopped on the AI6VN/KH6 Kiwi SDR in Maui, Hawaii with a nice S6-7 signal and good audio at that level. Thanks for playing "TNT For The Brain" by Enigma!!!
Signal on Maui, Hawaii SDR is up to 10 over S9 at 0451 and great audio!!!!
Signal on Marahau, New Zealand SDR is S5-6 and very listenable at that level!!!!!!!! Amazing!!!!!!!

Outstanding signal tonight. I stumbled across the show and thought it was a commercial station playing this great music. Found on the HFU chat that it is X-FM. That is really sounding good!. S9+20 sizzling in here. Thanks for sounding so good.

Just came inside and saw that Redhat's on tonight!

It's barely audible here near Seattle, where it's still daylight as of 0330 UTC. But the signal's good enough to make out Redhat's voice and it's strengthening by the minute.

0331 UTC: "T.N.T. for the Brain (Midnight Man Remix)" by Enigma. Heard via the Northern Utah SDR, which I'm monitoring as the signal fades in locally here.
0335 UTC: "Doin' Time" by Lana Del Rey.
0338 UTC: Redhat identifying the previous songs, talking about getting old and not remembering anything, and then reading HFU posts.
0342 UTC: "New Invention" by I Don't Know How But They Found Me, followed by a canned ID, then "Exits" by Foals.
0352 UTC: Canned ID, then "Afraid" by The Neighbourhood. Signal's still slowly fading in here near Seattle, so I'm also listening via the Northern Utah SDR.
0356 UTC: Redhat back on mic identifying the past few songs. Then he gave the time and introduced "Cosmic Girl" by Jamiroquai.
0400 UTC: Canned ID, then "Lessons in Love (All Day, All Night)" by Neon Trees featuring Kaskade.

0448 UTC: Checking back in after my late dinner, and I have poor to fair audio here at my radio near Seattle. Getting better now that it's dark here. Redhat's reading HFU posts and giving out the email for reception reports.
0453 UTC: "The Underground" by Meg Myers (a great tune that made my "top 20" favorite songs last year!).
0456 UTC: Canned ID, then "Welcome to the Monkey House" by the Dandy Warhols.

Thanks for the music, Redhat!

Nice signal tonight, just static crashes from the storms. This will be a nice signal to go to sleep to, my bedside radio doesn't do SSB so glad you are in AM.
