Catching the start up of X-FM on 6275 at 0222 with a S8-9 and great audio but getting hammered hard by nearby storms that are at a S7-8. Going to be a tough copy with these storms. Thanks for the show and Happy 4th to you Redhat and everyone else out there! :)

0231 Finding it at 6275 with what sounds like "America the Beautiful" as done by Ray Charles.
0232 Redhat on the mic.
     recording the show, will post more details later. Heading out to go watch the fireworks. Happy 4th!
.........................
0258 well, it's raining here. May not be any fireworks show after all. Came home to hear Redhat and then "Peaches" by the Presidents of the United States of America
.........................
0339 ugh, signal has faded. Making a slight comeback at 0340.
0345 signal back up, looks about 14 kHz wide AM signal on the waterfall but unfortunately high noise preventing me from fully enjoying it. Amazing signal though Redhat!

........................
0514 still on, "Stand or Fall", was that The Fixx who did this song?
0542 QRT. Thanks for the show!

Been listening since about 0340 UTC or so... Just above the S7 noise floor tonight. Hard to pull it out, but the liners and mic modulate very well. Sounds like a Shure SM7 or EV RE20 to me. Struggling to hear the music but can def hear the mic better. 21222 in Flint, MI. Grundig Sat800ME on 40' N-S sloper.

Station has very nice freq response on stronger waves. I can actually hear David Bowie - Young Americans at 0403!
