Tuned in at 0237.  Noise is really nasty and although the signal is 25-35 dB above the noise, overall quality is poor.

A time when I wish the Elad had an rf gain control!

Redhat announcing X-FM, and a great sounding playlist. Strong signal here with some band noise. Stereo AM sounding good using SoDiRa. Thanks for the broadcast X-FM Radio. Really nice tunes- too nice to suggest any requests.

Late to the show, sounds like Redhat wrapping things up @ 0318 with shoutouts to HFU posters.  S9 and good audio.

Catching ya at signoff, was a bit too weak against local QRM to hear much more than low tones earlier. S7 with shoutouts. I love being able to hear you at this frequency, but local QRM totally destroys that band, shame!

Signing off with Music is Math. Great choice, redhat, Geogaddi is one of the best albums of all time. Boards of Canada was lifechanging for teenage me!

Huge S9 signal and sounding great at sign-on a few minutes ago.  Looking forward to the Christmas show - thanks Redhat!

Off-air recording capturing most of the show with a good signal the majority of the time:

Thanks for the recording of another great X-FM broadcast.  My station is down due to remodeling and haven't been able to do any listening... Thanks for the HF fix...…
