0430Z 35433 S7 Can hear X-FM, but signal is up & down.
0434Z 35433 S7 The broadcast has begun.
0241Z 35423 S7 Redhat is speaking, but there are deep fades. Something about the witching hour on the east coast.

0554Z 35433 S8 Tried out the Sony ICF-2010 with a Quantum QX loop antenna and getting a very nice signal, with some deep fading. Heard Redhat talking about other activity on the air tonight. Lots of great music, much of which I haven't heard before.

At a New Years party having fun and trying out the Pocket RxTx App for Andriod and catching the start up of XFM on 4185 at 0429 with a S5-6 with peaks to S9 and audio excellent on the NA5B. Switched to the K3FEF and it is about the same. Playing Phil Collins at 0436. Good to hear Radio by Ramstein. Happy New Year and looking forward to a great show RH! Thanks Redhat for playing Walk On The Wild Side!

0435 - SIO 222 Keep on playing!  I love XFM.  The shows are on too rarely for my liking. :-)

0606 - fades earlier, but coming in much better now.

0629 - The Fixx with some fades but overall SIO 333 to 444, with, of course, excellent audio. 

Happy New Year Redhat!

0641 - QRT?

0441 finally getting some audio here, after having just a carrier only for a bit. Thanks and Happy New Year Redhat!
0442 heh, soon as I post that it fades ...
...
0552 been tuning in and out, have a lot of noise on this part of the band locally so that's a factor, but the signal has been there pretty consistently for the past hour.
0600 ringing in the new year for those in the Central time zone
...
0639 still on.
I'll be heading up soon, it's almost New Year's here in the Mountain time zone. Happy New Year Redhat!
