Hi Redhat and X-FM Radio. Super signal at +10 without touching the loop. Thanks for the pirate radio fun.

Signal into Littleton Co is bodacious.  10dB/S9.  Much rock and roll.

Tip of the hat (with skull and x bones on it) to MDK2.

Great selection of tunes and chat, caught the shout-out, thanks

Later on:

0550 - signal drops sharply to < S3, carrier visible, inaudible (sometime near 0550)
0559 - some joy returns, about S7, for about 90 seconds
0601 - we are back to S3, faintly audible
0606 - up the slope a bit to S4/S5, music is apparent.
0633 - now a fine S8, Gary Jules, Mad World.  More impactful over shortwave radio.

(I think)

I found X-FM on 6285 kHz just now, 0440Z.  Nice audio with signal level at 10dB over S9 here in central Georgia.
Thanks for the nice music!

Thanks for playing "The Victor". Dick Dale and the Del-Tones ripping it up in 1965. No one could touch him then.
