Great songs playing. SDR filters set to 10 kHz wide! Great audio and really good bass. I may reboot into the Perseus GUI because I can get even wider filters.

Awesome show X-FM!!!! Sorry I missed the MW tests.

Thanks for the great show.

Can't let Dr. Strangelove beat me- the signal just hit S9+30 peak a minute ago.

So much noise that I can not hear anything. If I get lucky I can ID a song and hear a voice.

SINPO 15211
fades in
04:29 Lessons in Love (all day, all night) - Neon Trees feat. Kaskade
fades out
fades in
04:38 a man's voice can be heard
fade out

There is so much noise (crackling, buzzing, and fading) that it impossible to really make a good log entry.
Current weather conditions are; freezing rain mixed with snow and heavy overcast.
Radio used is an Sangean ATS-909x and I just have the antenna (longwire) that came with the radio wrapped around the window.
Since this is my official first pirate log entry and X-FM is the first pirate I ever logged, I wish I could give you better results.
I am supposed to tell you that Al sent me.
Could I please have an QSL or eQSL even though this is a really small entry?

I have sent a detailed report to XFMshortwave@gmail.com. My fingers are now crossed.  ;)
