SINPO=32332(+), with some fluttering QRN, along with broadcast QRM from an adjacent frequency or harmonic.
006- "Ghost Town" by The Specials.
008- Redhat IDs with time check (9 minutes after the witching hour...somewhere east of the Rockies, and west of normal). Looked like propagation was going to be alright. Email address and phone number provided. Playing some new music and some Halloween favorites. Recorded OM ID, into...
012- "Spirits In The Material World" by The Police.
016- Redhat IDs with time check over music, into...
016- "Cosmic Messenger" by Jean-Luc Ponty.

Still a solid signal here, with less noise and QRM gone, SINPO=34333, improved.

027- Redhat IDing with time check, then IDs last few songs. Checking out HFU postings. Thanks RH! IDs, into...
031- "Dead Man's Party" by Oingo Boingo (a great 80s tune, featured in the underrated movie "Back To School" with Rodney Dangerfield).

Now SINPO=44433 or better.
214- "Realiti" by Grimes.
217- Recorded OM ID.
217- "Erase/Rewind" by The Cardigans.

SINPO=34333, a bit noisier with quick fades.
234- Redhat IDing with time check and announcing that it's time for us to go, over music. Thank you and goodnight to those of us on HFU (thanks RD!!!)
236- "Look Right Through Me" by Revis.
237- Redhat wishes us happy Halloween, reminding of email address, welcoming posts on HFU and with time check. Announces next tune and see you guys next time, on the other side.
238- "Stripped" by Depeche Mode.
242- Recorded OM ID.
242- OFF.

Thanks as always for the usual high quality production values and great tunes, Redhat!

Listening to the shoutouts 0030 UTC. Just tuned in and booming signal into Wisconsin as usual for X-FM on the Tecsun 880.
Nice wideband audio and have my radio bandwidth set for 9kHz. Almost sounds like an FM broadcast, can't even tell it's AM mode heh.

Thanks X-FM for the show! Enjoyed the shoutout.. and at the end of your show too ;D

0238 Stripped - Depeche Mode, good song to end my evening with while in the radio room here.
0242 Off air.

I really hope someone recorded your show tonight and uploads it. The one time I don't have my recording device plugged into my radio go figure lol.

Listening at the moment to a Minneapolis web receiver, but I plan to check it on my own receiver shortly. Redhat talking about the QSL policy at the moment. Pretty cool to actually hear it in stereo; good reason to listen on the KIWI SDRs

Great signal into SW Michigan as always. Your playlists are the best. I always look forward to new music - it's just like listening to FM radio in the early '80s.  Thanks for the music!!!

SINPO: 55545

Listening on a temp antenna G5RV at 30'.

Thanks!

S5 on my Tecsun-880 using attached stock antenna with some fading in Winfield, IN.  20:31 CT with Excitable Voice (?). 

Finally after 5 years of living in California and now IN, I have picked up my first pirate station in that time frame. 

20:37 XFM ID and discussion about not being licensed.  Announcer then discussing next song (Pappa Roach).

and thanks for the "shout out" at 20:56 CT.   I wasn't expecting that...nearly spit out my water. lol. (mod - Zane)

Tuned in at 0151utc on Normal IL sdr, good S9+20 to S9+30 signal, listening in CQUAM stereo, unfortunately there is also some powerline hash, also got fair to good reception on my DX440 with 10 foot wire clipped to rod antenna but without powerline hash, the primary in my neighborhood is only 2400/4160 instead of 7200/12470 like most places, nice selection of tunes, thanks,
