18:35 Solid S5 6865 KHz wideband USB on the Mix radio International Relay here in Denver on the local RSP DUo RX with dual loop on ground antennas in diversity. 4185 KHz C-QAM stereo, good copy on the Northern Utah web SDR. Extended flame about the poor state of Broadcast radio today, ruined by the suits and the big conglomerates. Right on the mark, great to hear you again RedHat. LOVE IT!!!!

55455, excellent reception SNR: 14.4, S9+8

0043: The Only Flame in Town - Elvis Costello
0046: OM: "We know the other rock stations suck". -> Low Budget - The Kinks.

4185kHz USB - 44333. Not quite as strong as 6865.
Thank you for tonight's show!
Thank you for the shout-out. Thank you for actually having something to transmit other than just music. I appreciate that there is actually someone who has something to talk about, and has opinions on topics.

0055z Just barely audible on the indoor receiver/loop antenna until a few moments ago when "Dirty Laundry" peaked above the mush. Gonna try outdoors with portable.
0114z Good signal to outdoor portable, but RFI much worse around 40m band. Tilting whip horizontally helps. Op reading signal reports from listeners.

No joy on 5185, carrier but audio buried under RFI.

4185 working well.

Receiving the 6865 kHz USB MRI relay at S9 +10 dB SIO 555 in the southeastern US tonight.  The 4150 kHz AM broadcast is about 333 and 5150 AM relay is between 444/544 with a good signal, but more noise here.

I've been listening while doing other things tonight, so here's an on-again off-again log.

2337 RH talking about QSLs
0020 Blinded by the Light
0036 RH suggesting most of [his] audience has gray hair (which I'll add editorially, is probably accurate)
0050 The Kinks? - Low Budget
0054 Don Henley - Dirty Laundry
0058 Gary Numan - Cars
0120 AC/DC - Thunderstruck
0129 Grateful Dead - Touch of Gray
0135 RH and AC saying goodbye over music bed
0139 XFM sounder followed by The Doobie Brothers? - Rocking Down the Highway
0143 XFM sounder and sign-off

Tuned it at 0117 to talk about "Mischief Night." OM announcers talked about toilet paper and eggs. (I grew up in New York and remember that in the 80s it also frequently involved arson and theft. Garbage cans, dumpsters, even the occasional street mailbox were set on fire. Kids also learned to blow out the eggs and fill the shells with other substances. Shaving cream and Nair were popular.)
0120: Ident XFM with Radio Illuminati and Mix Radio International. Music to the Power of X. Then AC/DC, Thunderstruck.
0125: XFM ident then Genesis, Turn It On Again
0128: XFM Shortwave ident then Grateful Dead, Touch of Grey
0134: The Mix Radio International feed signing off. Shoutouts to HFU posters reporting all three feeds. Broadcasting on 4185, 5185, and 6865 simultaneously. XFM, Radio Illuminati, Mix Radio International, and the Azimuth Coordinator signing off.
0139: Doobie Brothers, Rockin' Down the Highway
0142: ID again, then off the air.

Strong, wide signal in the clear with only very minimal fading.

Thanks for the show!
