XFM 4185 AM 0100 UTC 25 JAN 2020
« on: January 25, 2020, 0201 UTC »
With an intriguing opening track, it's Redhat.

edit: Actually sounds like a bed, maybe I caught him testing.

59+10 in SW Ohio and a butternut HF2V vertical on 16 radials.

We are up.  Antenna is screwed, the harmonic filter is broken, but the show must go on!

Noted carrier just before 0200, unfortunately all I'm copying is that and some occasional bits of audio at the noise floor.
0214 Signal suddenly took a big jump. Copying Redhat on the mic with XFM ID.
0234 I had some ok audio for a while, but signal has faded away to nothing by this time. Just a trace carrier. Will have to get the upload later. Thanks for the show.
0301 signal is back in a big way, SIO 222 (which I will gladly take)

Rx at 0302: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AU0CGV4UxCA

0416 hearing "Abacab" Genesis, a song I used to really dig as a youth.
0502 sounds like Rush.... not from Moving Pictures, maybe later in the 80s. (whoops, it was "The Trees" which came out earlier)

I love me some XFM radio!

Keep up the good work.

Gotta say the propagation has been very kind to you this evening, goes to show how powerful it is, even with the low power.

My antenna is down on the ground, so I'm listening via CommSigma's SDR... sounds pretty good. 

"Endless problems" boy, do I know how that goes! I was shooting to get on the air by Halloween, I'm still not on!

You're doing S8 at Siggy's though...

Update: you're hitting +10 now!

Hello Redhat. Just got home, catching The Mighty X on 4185 using the k3fef at 0215 talking about the harmonic filter that blew up and other assorted stuff including the crazy weather into Rammstein being played at 0220. Seen a advertisement that Rammstein is coming here to the Cities for a concert! Signal is a S7-8 and audio great as always. Must be running lower power? Anyway, great to hear you on the HF airwaves this evening! Keep rocking them buddy! Your awesome! Can I request the Kongos "Come With Me Now" or Liquid Liquid  "Cavern"? Thanks. :) Thanks for playing the Kongo's Redhat!
