Great signal into Northern Minnesota tonight. Just heard a tune by Mike Nesmith that brought back memories of Nichelodeons Pop Clips show. The 80's were such a great decade for music. S9 to S20 on the Yaesu FRG-7. Thank you for the great program!!!! Shortwave is still alive and will go on forever!!!!!!

Getting more legible out here in AZ, strong signal cutting through a lot of noise @0521.

Update: 0535 Fully legible 80's music w/ S7 in spite of static.

Really some of the most superb audio I've heard since the KIPM days, even with abysmal local conditions.
All the music was trippy, interesting and new to me... thanks again! Nothing like hearing weird new music out of
a SW
X-FM ID and off at 0556. Thanks for a really great show, one of the best I've heard.

my apologizes for the delay ...but gremlin problems with the computer....

Hear a nice clean audio signal up here in Alberta from 0316 to 0355 hrs, with greetings to numerous listener's, promotion for the Radio Cafe, HFU Underground and gave their e-mail address. Music varied and featured some Christian Music Scene as  "walk in the cave" @0324. Even gave a promotion for Chicken Man ventures. I believe the theme for this night's broadcast was Gloried  Audio Masturbation - the question of the night?

Anyway, a Great program and a great signal...Thank you for the show !

Overnight SDR Recording Catch
S9+40 plus at initial peaks - down to nothing towards program ending

0252 - noticing a strong S9+40 carrier on freq - tuning perhaps?
0255 - S/On w/music on freq now with nice guitar work
0256 - talk between OM & YL
.......
0508 - Positive ID by OM as: "XFM - Music To The Power of X"
0512 - Red Hat opines "Propagation went to sh--, I'm not sure anybody's still out there"
0513 - Signal took a nose dive and never really fully recovered to previous levels - S2 to S3 now
           with occasional bursts to S7
0533 - Signal waning now S2 to nonexistent...
0551 - Either S/Off - QRT, or faded down to nothing here...

Thanks for the Show!
Good to See You!
