0131 "Roam" The B-52's, fair signal ATM. Thanks for the show Redhat, I'll see if I can do anything to improve rx.
0141 after spending some time on the air giving shoutouts, "Homosapien" Pete Shelley. Thanks for the suggestion to salt the earth, I might try. Currently I'm using a kiwi SDR. That seems to be working.
0157 "X-FM in glorious monophonic AM" back on my own Rx, still fair but signal is steady. Pixies song.
0303 signal was pretty good for a while there, but the fades are getting deeper now. Still enjoying the show. Video clip of reception from about half an hour ago:

0450 Still on.... still a decent signal here.

VG signal & audio. Redhat with a live time check, into music.
Talk about how important it is to spend time with relatives over the Christmas season & that he lost three people he was close to over the past year. Phone # & said had a call from Bill Hassig. Will be broadcasting until the batteries run out. Cover of "Blue Monday"

Signal *much* better than the two shows around Halloween

Tuned in right at 0200 UTC as RedHat started talking out of the song and then into "Boys of Summer."

A good signal received up here in the Pacific Northwest, though with big fades in between booming peaks.

When I switch to AM mode, the audio sounds fantastic, but alas it's easier to hear through the fades when I have it my radio in sync mode on LSB.

Well, now as of 0228 UTC, the fading's not as bad and I can listen in AM mode. Nice Sheryl Crow cover of "Sweet Child O' Mine."

It's now 0249 UTC, and RedHat's talking after the "Bad Company" cover by Five Finger Death Punch, but the bad fading's back after a relatively stable 20 minutes of listening.

Checked back in at 0445 UTC and found X-FM's still rocking tonight with Wall of Voodoo's "Call of the West" -- a song I used to own on cassette. Deep fading still inflicting the signal, but it's still listenable in regular AM.

Here's a video snippet of the reception earlier, around 0230 UTC; the audio really stabilizes around 19 seconds in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d44u3pluA1w

Thanks for a great show, X-FM!

Hello Redhat. Just got home, not feeling the best. Catching ya here at 0157 with ID and into a track from the Pixies and then Boys of Summer. Signal varies a lot. Noise level in this frequency range again is a S7 but getting peaks hitting a S9 and audio sounding good! Thanks for the show buddy, wish it was better. :-\
  Update: At 0237, jumped onto the k3fef online SDR which is in NE Penn. and signal is a S9 to 3 over S9 and audio great! Talking about temp being 37 degrees and freezing your fingers. Also chatting about several requests coming up. "Bad Company" at 0246. Guess I will listen that way for awhile. Thanks again buddy! Enjoying very much! :)

thank you Red Hat for the fulfilled song request  8)
for anyone else that would like to listen to his awesome show and is having some trouble with their own receivers, i have mapped out four Kiwi SDR's that are receiving Red Hat at a good, stable signal, they are:
"AJ7LL", Huson, Montana (best)
"WC8VOA", WestChester, Ohio.
"KA7U", Weiser, Idaho
"Radio Ranch", Pahrump, Nevada
"WA3ETD", Central Vermont
"shift+P" increases bandwidth, "p" decreases bandwidth.

being a big fan of Lee Dorsey and being very familiar with his music, the cover of hit song "working in a coal mine" by Devo was absolutely hysterical but i wouldnt expect anything less from Devo   ;D ;D

About S5 with deep fades at 0418z tune in. Great sounding audio from RH with an ID then into a cool mash-up of Zepplin and Sabbath. Works for me.
Great to hear you! Thanks for the shout  8)

Some nice S7 peaks near the end of the show.

Thank you all for your reports and posts.  I have started a thread in the general section about the suitability of this frequency in the future and I'm interested in seeing if anyone noted any interference or other band users that I haven't seen.

Thanks all,
