Music heard, but it's faint and hard to tell what is playing. Sometimes nice music comes thru. Thanks for the broadcast tonight.

0030 - Discussion with Andy Yoder was cited about "having a summer (SW) event like the Europeans do." Gave an ID and email, then announced he'd play 'Fortress' by Queens of The New Stone Age, which he in fact, did play. Excellent signal, no interference, mostly light noise, and steady. (SINPO=454444 here in NE MA).
0038 - Several songs (that I'm unfamiliar with but enjoying), were heard, plus IDs (OM) for XFM, and (YL) for Mix Radio International. Killer signal!
0045 - IDs for both stations, then a song from the Razmattaz album, "Looking at 10 minutes and change." Read emails and HFU postings, including from yours truly. Announced email, then played I Love You by The Neighborhood. Steady signal.
0059 - YL with Mix Radio IDs, and into an upbeat song with whistling at the beginning. This is one of the stronger signals I've heard this year.
0108 - "The music sounds best." IDs for XFM and Mix Radio Worldwide heard, and more music.
0112 - Time check and a "thank you" to Mix Radio I. Recapped songs played, and discussed things that go on in the broadcast business.

Thanks for the great show!

0050 UTC S9+10 Noise is bad and CW jamming. It Suck! XFM a true Pro I'd guess. Keep kicking it out.
0100 UTC S+20 Peak. Now that's some power Id guess..? But the audio makes your efforts! Unreal Side Band work!
Thx THW
0305 UTC Great Show! Thx OTA

01:12  Chatting about pulling xmitter out of building on a weekend.  Fabulous S9+10-15 signal into SE VA tonight with the usual wonderful wide audio. So good to hear you bud, thanks for the show!
14 KHz wide audio - awesome
BTW - the avatar is my dearly departed potbelly pig Paolo. Much loved and missed by family and friends.

Just tuned in at 0122 UTC via a Lincoln, Nebraska, SDR, but it's noisy. The signal's not good via the usually reliable Northern Utah SDR spot, and it's inaudible directly up here near Seattle. :(

Anyway, sounds like a Duran Duran song at the moment. Hi, Redhat and MRI!

0125 UTC: IDs for X-FM and MRI into "The Underground" by Meg Myers (good song from a couple years back).
0128 UTC: "Need You Now" by Hot Chip (a favorite band of mine, so I'm liking the music mix so far!).
0133 UTC: Redhat on the mic, reviewing the last few songs played. The noise via this SDR is increasing fast.
0138 UTC: Canned X-FM ID, MRI ID and then "The Killing Moon" by Echo & the Bunnyman.
0144 UTC: Canned X-FM ID, then "Trust" by Megadeth.
0149 UTC: X-FM ID into "Turn it on Again" by Genesis. Now back to listening via the Northern Utah SDR, where the noise has calmed down a bit.
