Channel Z Christmas, 6925am, 12-23-14, 45332
High noise level for me plus some fast fading make this pretty strong signal a bit tough.
ID at 2245z.

Catching The Channel Z Christmas Show here also with a S7-8 and good audio at peaks but getting hit by higher than usual levels of noise along with "Winter Static" from storms. Heard Merry Christmas Everybody and Want To Wish You A Merry Christmas with ID at 2245. Thanks for the Christmas Show Channel Z, wish conditions were better. :-\
