Hi, Redhat -

Just tuned in at 0323 UTC as you were reading HFU shoutouts. The signal's fading in and out pretty wildly at times here, but during the peaks, it's very listenable and sounds good here in Lake Stevens, WA.

0325 UTC: Redhat chatting about music, giving the time and phone number, etc., with background music going.
0326 UTC: Synth voice "new music on X-FM" promo into "Might be Right" by White Reaper.
0330 UTC: Promo for HFU right into "Let's Dance" by David Bowie (Ah! So many teenage memories attached to this album!).
0338 UTC: Canned ID into "Lie to Me" by Jonny Lang. Signal's stabilizing here as the sunset passes.
0343 UTC: Redhat with intro into "Cigarettes" by Tash Sultana, then "New Sky" by Rufus Du Sol ("Better fire up your subwoofers for this," Redhat says.).
0353 UTC: Redhat reading shoutouts from HFU, mentioning how to get a QSL, talking about propagation, last few songs played, email address, etc.
0400 UTC: "Temporary" by White Rabbits.
OK, off to dinner (yes, we eat late out here) ...
Welp, dinner wasn't ready ... tuned in again at 0411 UTC to hear Meg Myers' cover of Kate Bush's "Running up that Hill" (good choice!).
0414 UTC: Canned ID, Redhat with email address, etc., into "Killer" by Adamski + Seal.
0420 UTC: "Writer's Block" by Just Jack after Redhat's intro to the song. The noise is starting to catch up with this signal out here. :(

Solid signal here in Alberta with "Might Be Right" by White Reaper when I got to the radio at 0328, then ID at 0330 along with promo for hfunderground.com, and into David Bowie's "Let's Dance".   Thanks for the program.

Thanks, Redhat for acknowledging my report that I had JUST sent in by email.  Now that's a great response!   Frequency completely in the clear, but prone to some pretty rapid fades.  73,  Walt (04:02 UTC)

I listened right until sign off at around 06:03 UTC.  Signal remained decent to the west coast.  Not great, but perfectly listenable!   Thanks for the long show!
