X-FM 6880 AM 0300 UTC June 19, 2016
« on: June 19, 2016, 0302 UTC »
Hearing some unid audio here..talking and music?
0303 UTC "Channel Z"-B-52's
0304 UTC OM with X-FM ID, into chat
(Signal is about S4 here with some fading....)

After the final RFW bunker show, I put the NRD on timer and drifted off to sleep to the Power of X :) The S-meter was the only light in the room and I noticed it was wavering around S7... 8)
