Variable in Wyomissing.  Signal 3/5 but noise is 3/5, too.

Found on 6950 at 0219.  Announcer talked about pirate radio and music until 0225, when music began.

Mr. XFM, I only mentioned Radio 1 because the only place I've ever heard The Streets is on Rob Da Bank's Radio 1 show, which is excellent BTW. Once a week show that is great for finding new music that I bet you'd like:

XFM with a nice sounding S7 signal - little fade  - clear audio -  a bit crashy here.

Lot's of ID's around 0230z and sounding like another great live show. Stream of dance covers/mixes.

0306z - Tool  - Prison Sex.
0437z - Solid S8 signal
0453z - "This is XFM Shortwave" ID
0500z - Redhat (with the Professor) talking about pirate radio bringing us some alternatives in music - the purpose of XFM.
0505z - Transistor - Flow
0512z - Off - Thanks for the show.

Tuned in for a few min so far...Heard "Time" with the extended psych section.
BDM requested the Electric Prunes "I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night"
Talking about how there are people listening to pirates from all walks of life, then about RTN being on the air and how he always plays music from vinyl (and that he might try an all-vinyl show)

I think there are stations on 6925, 6930, 6940, & 6950 right now!
Thanks for the show!
Andrew
