Good signal S9+10 and a little noise.

Song and ID. Thanks for the show, XLR8!

Now a rap type of song with female singer. Pretty funny lyrics.

Pounding the airwaves now at 0030 utc. Really clear and loud at +20. Outstanding signal.

Weak here, but the music is getting through the noise.

Catching XLR8 here also amid all the storm static playing a really wide selection of cool tunes. Signal is a S7-8 and excellent audio with ID at 2359. Thanks for the show XLR8, enjoying it very much. ;D

6955 USB / MAY 11 / 0051-0104*.   Caught tail-end of show.  Signal a bit weak and hard to copy in all the static.
Several (?) SSTV images then s/off @ 0104.
Just a boy with his radio and some wire.

QSLs always appreciated.
