Very loud signal. Funk rock at S9+20 in DSB mode. USB at 6.930 sounds good, but some of the signal is below 6.929 too.

Thanks for the show.

Tuned in at 0043 UTC, but signal seems to be buried in the noise this evening...band must have gone long already :(
0054 UTC Signal picked up just a bit, now just above the noise with some kind of alt punk tune
0058 UTC ID..."XLR8"
0101 UTC Rock tune opening with a lead guitar playing "My Country Tis of Thee"
0108 UTC Caught the end of "Siberian Khatru", then ID at 0110 UTC "XLR8", into "Black Cow"-Steely Dan (Signal is about S3/S4 here and marred by peskies on LSB)
0116 UTC I hear Lou Reed from the 70's...had to google it I hadn't heard it in so long! "Rock and Roll"
0129 UTC "Shaking All Over"-Guess Who or Who? One of those versions I think!
0156 UTC Signal just above the noise here with "Don't Call Us, We'll Call You"-Sugarloaf (their other hit!)

0402 UTC "Come As You Are"-Nirvana (Yep, still here too XLR8 guy! Your signal was in the noise the past couple hours but has crept up above the noise level now!)
0407 UTC OFF?

Thanks for the marathon show tonight XLR8! Wish that prop had been a little bit more cooperative though.

0412 UTC Back again? I'm hearing a repeated bass and drum line like an Interval Signal of sorts
Hearing some regular music now and an XLR8 ID just a few minutes ago...thanks for coming back XLR8!
0430 UTC Sounded like you put the Turbocharger on! Signal just jumped up to S8 here!
0443 UTC XLR8 ID, into "Jailbreak"-Thin Lizzy
0448 UTC  ;D "Can't You Hear Me Knocking"-Rolling Stones (Thanks XLR8!)
0512 UTC I'm hearing the sounds of "Safeway Cart"-NY & CH!!! Another chilling tune off Sleeps With Angels...love the backward harmonica!

0520 UTC and you're signal is still fading between S3 and S8 here! Way past my bedtime and I'm calling it a night. Thanks for the long show and the request! That xmtr must be hot enough to cook steaks on!  ;D
