I can hear faint music but not enough for an ID. Dang, this is a new one for me.

XLR8 ID at 0415z, into a jazz/fusion type tune.  A.I.R. (All India Radio) by Carla Bley & Paul Haines at 0420, per Shazam.

About an S8 -S9 signal here with occasional fades.

Thanks XLR8!

6955 KHz on the nose here, about S9 on peaks.

0512z tuned in to XLR8 ID and unid rockabilly tune in a punk motif.
0518z new tune started, brief fade out, back to S9+, then near fade out again.
0524z XLR8 ID about S7, then into electro/house tune "Watching you on the screen"
0529z "Accelerate" ID
0529z another electro/house tune "Welcome To The Future"
0535z XLR8 ID, then a Phish sounding kind of track
0538z XLR8 ID, into a downtempo electro track

About 2.8 KHz audio here.  First pirate catch on the new Winradio box with the Chi-Town Loop!

Thanks for the show!

6955 USB S9+ at 0526 UTC into Central Missouri.

0528 ID aas XLR8

Playing 80's themed techno music....very clean signal and great audio, but static and crashes having slight effect.

Thanks for the broadcast this evening!

Coming in really strong now at 0543 UTC with no static and clear audio!! Decent music, and a good variety...Kudos on a good program.

SDR Recording Catch
Static, right at the noise level, you've been a lot better on previous b'casts.

0317 - Hearing music, but can't ID station or artist.
0428 - Positive ID by OM as: "XLR8" with a touch of reverb.
0527 - Techno / Electronica muzak.
0619 - ID by OM as: "XLR8. Accelerate".
0619 - S/Off - QRT.

Thanks for the Show last night.

This was also a SDR recorder catch. Signal was a nice S7 with excellent audio with ID's at 0339, 0406 and more after that. Same program details as fellow posters. Thanks for the show XLR8. Sounded great on the recorder. ;D

XLR8 heard in the UK too ...

2 short video clips which I'll leave up for a week or so at

password is 6925USB

Sounded much better through headphones!

Thank you XLR8 - I enjoyed last night's musical mix.
