Slightly above S7, here in N. Alabama.

"The Music Sounds Best on XFM" is not just a slogan, it's the truth.  You really do have the best audio quality, out there.  I also appreciate how you run your station as a "true station", rather than a gimmick.  That's something I've always appreciated about the Euros, and I definitely appreciate it, about XFM.

No QSL necessary.  Just wanted to send well-deserved kudos.


S8, here in N. Alabama.  Tuned in at 0042, to UNID new wave/alt rock tune.  Into Devo's "Uncontrollable Urge" at 0043.  Followed by Ian Dury & The Blockheads' "Sex and Drugs and Rock & Roll".  About 0050, a classical version of part of "Pictures at An Exhibition was played (I only recognized it, via the ELP CD I have).  Some sort of announcement (ID ?) by male announcer at 0055, then off.

PSE QSL to info below.  Thanx and 73 !
