2310 4175U Redhat with usual program of relaxed talk, accurate TC, ID's and good music.  X-FM via Mix is S6

5150 is a little het with no audio here.

Thanks for the show Redhat.

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

Just got home from a long walk with the dog, turned on the NA5B and catching the Mighty X playing The Hollow at 2331 into Heart Shaped Glasses at 2335 on both frequencies. On 5150, signal is a 5 over S9 and excellent audio and on 4175, signal is a 5 over S9 and audio excellent. Thanks for the show Redhat and thanks to the Relayers, great to hear you on the HF airwaves! If you are doing requests, how about something from Distrurbed? Thanks again my friend! Be safe! :)

No sign of the signal on either frequency out here near Seattle; only a hint on 4175 via the Northern Utah SDR.

So I'm listening to it via NA5B in D.C., where it's loud and clear on 4175 kHz USB and fair but not loud on 5150 kHz AM ... 

0015 UTC: "Check My Brain" by Alice in Chains.
0016 UTC: X-FM ID, then "Never Miss a Beat" by Kaiser Chiefs.
0019 UTC: "The music sounds grand ... on X-FM" ID, then "My Wave" by Soundgarden.
0024 UTC: Computer voice X-FM ID, then "Bad Company" by Five Finger Death Punch.
0029 UTC: X-FM ID, into "Special" by Garbage.   
0032 UTC: Redhat going over the past few songs and glancing at HFU posts, looking for Tears for Fears on his system. The signal on 5150's now pretty decent, but not as good as 4175.
0035 UTC: Redhat gave the time, ID, email and plays Tears for Fears' "Shout" by request. (This song was HUGE my freshman year of high school!)
0042 UTC: ID, Redhat read my comment on "Shout" and then intros "Sahara Love" by Above & Beyond.
0103 UTC: Checking back in, I hear Redhat intro a Post Malone song. The 4175 USB frequency is near-perfect via the D.C. SDR.
0116 UTC: After reviewing HFU posts and an ID, "Barrel of a Gun" by Depeche Mode. (Indeed, a good song.)
0122 UTC: ID, then "Lazy Eye" by Silversun Pickups.

Thanks for the always-good selection of music, Redhat!
