Listening via the Northern Utah SDR, which has a great signal with minimal noise and fading. On my own radio here north of Seattle, the signal's coming in fair as of 0240 UTC ...

0209 UTC: Redhat back on the mic after playing an Antiflag song. Reviewing previously played songs, mentioning monster trucks, and confused by the two HFU threads on X-FM (I'm confused, too).
0216 UTC: Canned ID into Killing Floor's "Acid Bean," as requested by Andrew Yoder.
0219 UTC: Canned ID then "The Trees" by Rush.
0224 UTC: Canned ID into "Vial" by Vinyl Theatre, followed by "Lessons in Love (All Day, All Night)" by Neon Trees feat. Kaskade.
0231 UTC: Redhat back on the mic, "somewhere under the stars," talking about a loose screw on his mic, then reviewing previously played songs, checking in on HFU postings again.
0236 UTC: "Radio" by Rammstein by request. (It's a great song!)
0241 UTC: "A Girl Like You" by The Smithereens (a very underappreciated band from my college days).
0246 UTC: Canned ID and then "Beguiled" by The Smashing Pumpkins.
0250 UTC: Redhat back on the mic talking about how he discovered that newish Smashing Pumpkins song via YouTube, checking in on the HFU board again, and reviewing recently played songs.
0255 UTC: "Tom Sawyer" by Rush, as requested by William Hassig, then an ID into "Cracker Island" by Gorillaz.
0303 UTC: Redhat on the mic with the email address, then "Trust" by Megadeth.
0308 UTC: Canned ID into "Kiss and Tell" by Bryan Ferry.
0313 UTC: Redhat on mic reviewing recently played songs, talking about his nighttime weather, checking in on HFU postings.
0317 UTC: "Voices" by Russ Ballard.
0323 UTC: Canned ID into "Plastic" by New Order (good tune!).
0330 UTC: Canned ID into "Nothing Left to Lose," the new song from Everything But the Girl.
0334 UTC: Redhat back on mic, reviewing the previously played songs, checking in on the HFU posts, talking about changes with pirate radio and complaints about them playing too much music: "This, ladies and gentlemen, is my vacation."
0342 UTC: Canned ID into "Seen it Coming" by Bob Moses.
0346 UTC: Canned ID into "On My Knees" by Rufus du Sol.
0350 UTC: Canned ID into ... well, something technical happened. Redhat got onto the mic and introduced "Just Wanted to Know" by Royksopp feat. Astrid S.
0355 UTC: Redhat on mic, reviewing the previously played songs and giving a sign-off monologue about propagation deteriorating and hoping folks enjoyed the music. He also thanked the HFU posters and emailers.
0359 UTC: "Perpetual" by VNV Nation to end the broadcast.

0242 UTC "A Girl Like You"-Smithereens (S8 peaks now with moderate fading amidst high noise...usual superb audio)
0337 UTC Still kicking back and enjoying the show (In between the occasional deep fade outs!)
0407 UTC OFF

Thanks for the entertainment this evening redhat! Reception was tough at times, but other times I had 100% copy!

Still on with a nice fat signal on an SDR in Central Florida. 444. If wasn't for some stray static from a wideband ute below him this would be a 555.

For some reason, I'm not having much luck in getting good reception. This is a first for X-FM...unfortunately. Maybe better luck next time. From what I did hear it was a great show.
