Catching XLR8 here also with a signal varying from a S5 to a S8 with ID's at 2328 and 2330. Playing a cover of Black Sabbath at 2331 and a cover of Led Zeppelin at 2336. Thanks for the early evening show XLR8. Great to hear you again. Rock the HF airwaves!

Nice rock tune very loud. Good audio, and well modulated XLR8- so you are getting out a great signal. S9+10, and a little more at times.

Thanks for the great show.

0051z: Listening outside with Sony 2010 portable, just barely audible between fades to inaudible.  Think I heard Beck "Flavor", XLR8 ID during fairly strong signal peak, Boston "Smokin'", before faded out again.
