Just tuned in at 0010 UTC on 5150 kHz. Can just barely hear music when tuning in with LSB mode; lots of noise. Nice to hear X-FM for the first time in a while, though!

5150 - 2358.  Mellow rock music, ID and frequencies, talk with accurate TC with mention of the Relay Station.

S5 with fading.  Mostly audible.

Been booming into Western New York on 5150 at a  SIO-555.
Sounding like a local AM station with a little fade here and there.
