Carrier noted coming up at 0248z and into RFW opening fanfare at 0250z.  Programming started at 0300z with the QRM Show.  S4-S5 signal over the S3 noise floor with hard rockin heavy metal.  Fanfare again at 0400z and into a different RFW program.  Off at 0422z.  Great show.  Great music.  Great frequency.  Thanks!
