XLR8 on 6955 USB @ 0040 FEB 27
Man now singing on 6955. Don't recognize song.
"Fireball" by Sun Dial? @ 0051.
You were right, Markokpik, it's XLR8.

Clear ID @ 0054.

"Cinderella" @ 0057.
0111: Kim Fowley - Animal Man
Still sounding good with very good audio @ 0136.

Decent signal here tonight and some great tunes.
Thanks, XLR8!
Any chance, XLR8,  you may make a playlist available?

UnId, 6955 U, 0043, 2.27.16.  Unidentified music.  When I was trying to tune in the signal better, there was a pause and might have been XLR8 but I'm not sure.

Firm XLR8 ID at 0054.

Tuned in at 0051utc, weak but nice and clear in Chicagoland with some moderate selective fading, Heavy metal music, R2000 & dipole. (edit) just heard ID as XLR8.

Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

Hi Julio, welcome to the forum. XLR8 usually IDs itself. Listen for a breathy sounding voice.  Thats great you hear it in Guatemala! I'm in California and its one of the stronger stations East of me.
