6950am X-FM Shortwave 0200z 4/14/2013
« on: April 14, 2013, 0200 UTC »
X-FM signing on 6950, but another AM station just under 6950 is causing a mess on the frequency.  Other station just went off, X-FM sounding better here now - 0201z.

0304z: "Jesus Built My Hotrod" by Ministry - haven't heard this in years :-)

tuned in at 0202utc heard ID: X-FM, generic pop music, off suddenly.
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

S9+ in the woods of NW Florida.  Very minor fading with static crashes having little effect.  No noticeable interference.  I look forward to the shows.
