 8)  Wow sounds like true PRO radio here in SE. Beautiful audio and great carrier, with just a bit of fade.
 :D
This station deserves to be recorded as a bench mark !

0020- now condx getting dicey here in SE. Signal is dropping out at times. But thanks for the Pro Show anyway !
Cool stuff.. I switched to the SF Bay Area Half Moon SDR, and the station pounding!!
tried Utah also, but was getting fades in northern Utah. Right Now its POOOWERFUL IN SF area !!
Power- now coming up on my dipole.. in SE. It faded now its way up again here in Carolina.
0125- Still 555 in SE, with only slight fades ! Fantastic coverage.. Must be a Mexican connection at 50kw.. ;D
Still 555 here in Cherokee, have not lost a moment in past hour. Using only hill top dipole.. 41 meters
Now speaking praise to US.
I called in on the chat line. Signals were solid here in foothills after initially a fade out.

Was very loud at first, then faded away. Some switchology and loop tweaking is giving a fairly good signal down here. Good ID and phone number. Thanks a lot for the show as it is appreciated.

Catching you tonight on a G39 with a ALA1530. Good tune just came up.......

0017Z, receiving it quite well out here on the west coast of Canada using a Tecsun PL-660 with the portable whip antenna. My main receiver is unavailable due to the fact that a wolf chewed my antenna feedline in two this morning. :-/

Got a shoutout at 0030Z, thanks for the show!! :-)

Extremely good signal in Northern Utah via WebSDR.

If anyone wants to listen on WebSDR this is the strongest signal I've found: http://websdr1.utahsdr.org:8901/

Email for X-FM is xfmshortwave@gmail.com and their phone number is (408) 800-6925 in case someone didn't catch it
