Big signal tonight bumping +20 and sounding great. Some fades at the moment. I don't know this song, but it's a good one. Redhat heard. Thanks X-FM for another great sounding broadcast.

0330 utc, and a great tune at the moment. You're coming in much better and a bit louder. I have 2 radios on 4070 to see which is getting the best signal.

Time hack at 0342u. Really good signal and modulation. Thanks Redhat.

Catching ya here also RH, just above the horrible S7-8 noise levels that I get here from 3900 to 4200 Khz. Peaks are hitting S9 to 1 over and sounding good at peaks! Thanks RH, wishing it was better.
