lol...I had just fired up the Hallicrafters SX-62A to listen to XFM, when I heard him announce that he had a report from someone else listening on an SX-62A.  DOH!

0245 UTC Doors, Riders on the Storm.

As normal, a nice signal into the Mojave Desert of California.

Something like an S4 or S5 here in the SF East Bay on my homebuilt regen.
Nice quality modulation.

Woa! MC 900 Foot Jesus "The City Sleeps" at 0258z - a great song about what goes through the mind of an arsonist. I'm a convert to this station!

PS - thanks for the shout-out!

Good signal and great tunes!
Was listening on my kaito portable and 50ft random wire, then I had to go back to my house near the am station, now listening on globaltuners.

Was coming in SIO 434 in the Greater Rochester area, New York
Now SIO 534 on http://www.globaltuners.com/receiver/1405/js2

Mind hitting me with a recording, Redhat?

Here is a recording to serve as QSL, It doesn't sound too good as it it just me holding up a mic to the speaker of my portable... oh well.

I live very close to 5KW am station and so no DXing for me. :(. I use lots of webradios.
