Good selection of music but the signal is not like has been in the past.
Love the more metal music tonight.
Keep up the work and 73's. Thank for the music.

Hello Redhat. Just joined the party on 4095 at 0209 with "Welcome to the North" playing via the K3fef SDR in Pennsylvania with a solid S9 and excellent audio as always. XFM ID at 0213. Signal at my QTH is just 1 S-unit  above the noise at a S9. Also wanted to say thanks for the QSL's! They are awesome!
    Now talking about the crappy noise emitting LED bulbs from Walmart at 0218. Also Redhat, could I request a tune from the Clash if possible. Thanks for the awesome show RH! Keep rocking the HF airwaves! :)
    0246-Thanks for the shout out RH and for playing "London Calling"! Excellent track!
    Your welcome Treehouse SWL, The Clash is one of my favorite bands also! :)

A little over S9 here in to Northern Virginia. Lots of QSB and QRM making things interesting.

"From somewhere under the stars": Redhat with signal peaking up around S7. I'm recording it, but need to wait for the display to shut off for that noise to disappear. When that happens, I'd rate the signal as fair/good or good
