XFM, 6950, 0445, 3/9/13.  Nice electronic music, 348 ID.  Had to go check on a computer system installation & came back to brief mellow talk and another song. Reports here, HF cafe, e mail, Convictor, TC (0505), more mellow music, 0511 ID and off.

S9 + 10. Wow! great signal.

Here's stereo audio of the last hour or so of X-FM's C-Quam broadcast last night:

6950 kHz X-FM C-QUAM STEREO 0417-0511 UTC 09MR13.mp3

I'm using Sodira with the Perseus SDR to demodulate the stereo.  The bandwidth was set to 15 kHz wide, and then opened up to 18-1/2 kHz wide about 0:32 minutes into the recording.  The signal was a consistent S6-S7 throughout this recording.  Too bad conditions weren't a bit quieter last night.  Still sounded good though.  Thanks for the show Redhat!
