Been listening since 0126 UTC while eating dinner at the listening post! Pretty good signal here into Western MA, S8 peaks and great audio but some fades into the noise. I though it was going to be lousy propagation tonight with the noise level, but I guess I'm mistaken ;)
0157 UTC Thanks for the shoutout Mr. Redhat!
0340 UTC Time to call it a night here as soon as Gold Dust Woman is over :)
Thanks for the marathon broadcast X-FM!

Tuned in at 0201utc, fair/poor, sounds like dance music, Id at 0203utc "broadcasting in cquam stereo this is XFM", now rock tune in minor chord, R2000 and dipole.
(edit) At 0219utc I sent a reception report and a request to xfmshortwave@gmail.com and he played my request of the punk rock tune "big takeover" by Bad Brains.

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
