6880 KHz 5/19/2018 Carrier noted about 2200z  Weak at first, but getting stronger as we get darker.

2346z Hearing OM giving out email addresses, HFU address it sounds like.  Back into music @ 2348z.  Good bass modulation!  I can see the kick drum sidebands @ 40 Hz...
2352z Coldplay 'Yellow'
2358z OM hearing ..."dot com"..."shortwave report"...  lots of noise here, even though carrier holding a fairly steady S9.


Thanks for the show!
anytime you want to use 6880Khz, i will yield it no questions asked to one of two of my favorite respected AM operators who inspired me to get back into this hobby of AM broadcasting.
that is RedHat and Azimuth Coordinator.
hats off to you both for giving me the inspiration.

0047Z - now into HFU member "Matt-B", and his live streaming broadcast as requested ;)
more than happy to have you broadcasting on my station Matt.
i hope the band still holds out for "Radio Stasi" afterwards, if not, there is always tomorrow ;).
its nice to get some requests to play shows from others, i enjoy it very much and thanks to all of you for sending them in !
special thanks to member "ulx2" from Ukraine - surprisingly able to hear something on the lines of at least minimal from such a great distance especially for AM.
i am really curious to know the details of your reception station ulx2 - the distance of transmission is from the eastern seeaboard of the USA to you at 500 watts RMS.

i didnt get a chance to thank everyone for the reports from all over, so thanks to all of you.
also, thanks to everyone who requested to have their shows played including HFU member "Matt_B" and John from VORW, youre always welcome.
i still have other shows remaining to play but i am not sure how long the band will hold out before she starts to stretch her legs.
i will likely continue to play them even if the band stretches her legs and will repeat the last remaining shows tomorrow during better band conditions.
