Another excellent signal and great audio here in North Alabama.  Some bozo is QRMing by moaning over your broadcast,

Play some Rush?

tuned in at 0211, good/fair sig with light static, excellent audio, talk about election season, nice music selections, RF-4900 & dipole. PS: hear occasional moaning QRM which an emailer to XFM mentioned. (edit) to the clown doing the moaning QRM, if you're reading this please go away. I don't want to hear your moaning.

Im picking this up to my amazement on my new RA0SMS Miniwhip! Using ECSS-L to avoid the QRM. About S5-7 here.  Mr. Redhat! Your logo looks sweet on the T-shirt!

Hearing the sign off song now at 04:02, booming in now at s9+

Enjoyed the show and playing with my new antenna. Thank you.

Thought it was a relay at first, because of the freq, so I set the recorder...
Clearly it was live since RH mentioned the political season & I saw his post here...

It was an s7-8 here at original shack with beverage/loop combo...

Thanks for the show RH!!!

...on the overnight SDR Recording

0106 - faint carrier first noted on 6875 kHz
0340 - faded out or QRT at about this time

SDR recording catch. A good signal, but unfortunately right below a UTE that caused quite a bit of QRM, so mostly an SIO 422 to 411.

caught the whole show on an sdr catch (sdriq and a pixel active magnetic loop).  pretty close to noise level at first, but slowly built where station IDs and bs were understandable.  quite a bit of qrn here and propagation between me and XFM wasn't all that great last night on the san juan islands in nw wa.

thanks for the show!  i look forward to hearing you again with better condx.
san juan islands in nw wa.  antennas: gap-40 monobander, carolina windom-80 at 60 feet, 30m dipole, pixel magnetic loop, active antenna. various receivers sdr/conventional.
