Something noted at 0120 UTC with xmsn crackles...music came up at 0123 UTC and now at 0126 we have a nice S5 signal :) XLR8 presumably?
Signal has settled down nicely, weak but clear since 0130 UTC
0136 UTC OM with "accelerate", then "X-L-R-8", into UNID tune
0140 UTC A bit of jazzy reggae music
0155 UTC XLR8!XLR8!
Hey XLR8....any chance of hearing "Long Way To Go"-Alice Cooper?
0206 UTC "Long Way To Go"-Alice Cooper :) Thanks XLR8!
0215 UTC Getting some nice S5/S6 peaks here now
0255 UTC XLR8 ID
0302 UTC More ID's, into alt/punk tune (nice S7 here at the moment!)
0306 UTC Some kind of percussion intro/fragment of Bob Marley segueing into punk tune
0311 UTC A bit of alt disco segueing into cover of Tainted Love

Strong signal at 01:38. Had some deep fades a few minutes ago, but seems pretty stable now. Conditions are pretty noisy.

Sublime song. Haven't heard sublime in years.  Yeeaaarrrrrsssss.  This brings back memories of Sublime, Greenday, Weezer, and another band with a pumpkin on the album cover that was more tough.

Been listening for the past 2 hours to mainly noise, but occasional fragments of unrecognisable songs.

Finally a clear "XLR8" ident at 03:26z and so XLR8 can go in the logbook. Thank you for the long show tonight guys - if it hadn't been quite as long, I never would have got you in the logbook!
