S8 and excellent audio, but has quite a bit of fading.  Hopefully propagation will cooperate.

Down to S5 and mostly poor copy @ 0059z   :(

Only a faint S3 carrier @ 0111 - no audio.

HUGE signal here in south central lower MI .... Bad Religion "Streets of America after a full ID ... and into Yeasayer "Madder Red" after a few seconds of dead air. Apparently a live show as there was a time check at :18 and into "NARC" by Interpol

I wish my AM Stereo receiver tuned up to SW ..... the modulation is wonderful as always. You should consider offering your services to Radio Cairo!  :)  

SINPO 4+54+4+4+ at first -- nearly perfect but for some selective fading but by the end fading down to 34343 0113-0125  Can tell SOMETHING is still there at 0135 recheck but down to SIO 221 and lost in the noise ....

Late to the show tonight but catching X-FM here too but rough copy at the moment.  A lot of deep long fades.

Off rather abruptly mid-song at 0309 UTC during the end of the Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony".

Same as KK7 here. Just hearing RH's voice and ID at 0225z over my S7 noise  :-\. Seems to be improving.

...improving enough to hear Robert Plant - Big Log at 0240z. Great song.

coming it quite well here in Central Alberta dispute the noise pulse which plagues this frequency at my QTH.
Caught a nice ID @ 02:32 for "Music sounds best on  X-FM Shortwave "
Great Program ..thumbs up !!!

I tuned in late but had the SDR recording and the signal was much better earlier in the evening.  Here's a wideband stereo recording from 0106-0140 UTC.  Conditions here took a dive after 0140, thus the short recording:

6975_kHz_X-FM_C-QUAM_STEREO_0106-0140_UTC_28DE14.mp3 (http://amdxer.com/download/DX_Audio_Clips_Other/6975_kHz_X-FM_C-QUAM_STEREO_0106-0140_UTC_28DE14.mp3)

Thanks for the show!

Thanks for the recording Kilokat7.  I also received a short stereo clip from a guy in Madison, WI listening on a NRD-545.

Thank you all for the posts, I will be working on some of the QSL's this weekend.
