0051 weak music, beat more apparent than melody. Hope it gains power soon. Thanks for the show!
0104 OM with ID
0106 OM again. Signal very weak here, it's usually much stronger than this

Just above threshold at 0053 UTC...having trouble fine tuning the signal....lots of bass response for USB!
0103 UTC "Sleepwalking"-The Chain Gang of 1974
0104 UTC something something shortwave XFM testing USB
0106 UTC "This is XFM shortwave"
0107 UTC ID repeated
0111 UTC "XFM The Power of X"
0114 UTC A longer ID this time...trying to fine tune but not on long enough to get the exact frequency
0117 UTC Got it that time! Closer to 6974.9 I think

X-FM, 6975 USB, 0054 - 0103, 9/18/16.  Bass heavy music, few unintelligible words, dead air for about 30 seconds, back with similar music, ID with somewhat distorted voice, 0203 dead air except for some weak music that came out of the static for a few seconds several minutes later.

Poor here.

Had a copy of it at around 0119 with the Sat. 750- noise but audible signal into the QTH

It's a shame they weren't in AM- isn't this the station known for the C-QUAM broadcasts?

Heard from 0032 on the SDR recording, about an SIO 322. Frequent breaks in the transmission. Testing?
