X-FM 6285 AM 0218 UTC 19 JUL 2020
« on: July 19, 2020, 0219 UTC »
0218 I just got home and tuned in, I think this is the usual interval. Decent signal, some static crashing.
0235 signal coming in quite well now, Redhat on the mic but about to go back to the music from the sound of things.
0240 "How Soon Is Now" The Smiths
0331 still tuned in, signal's really good considering I've got this one on the MLA-30 (not as much gain as the G5RV, but I need that one to pull in WDDR). Enjoying the show and in it for next couple of hours.
0446 still going strong. Redhat on the mic.
0529 still got a good signal (switched to the G5RV after WDDR signed off).
0542 going to start getting ready for bed, but keeping the radio on and tuned in.

Catching the start up of XFM also via the Utah SDR at 0221. Signal is a S8-9 with some fading and audio excellent. Also catching XFM on the Maui KIWI SDR at a S4-5. Looking forward to a great show Redhat! How about a track of your choosing from one of my favorite bands, The Clash.Thanks my friend, be safe out there!
Thanks for playing "London Calling" Redhat! Great tune! ;D

SINPO=23222, but muffled spoken audio here. Improved by 247, at SINPO=33333, with clearer spoken audio.

229-Redhat talking over faint music. Time check at 230. Coming from somewhere under the stars. Gives email address twice and welcomes posts on HFU, FRN or FRC. Shoutouts to posters. Repeats email and telephone number. QSLs take awhile sometimes. Time check at 235.
235- X-FM recorded ID by OM.
235- "Dangerous" by Big Data.
240- OM recorded ID.
240- "How Soon Is Now?" by The Smiths. Great 80s tune.
247- OM recorded ID.
247- "Ausländer" (Foreigner) by Rammstein.

315- Redhat IDs last songs. Email provided twice. Postal QSLs offered one of these days, post virus, who knows! Avoiding negativity of the internet and what they call news sources (I agree!). Shoutouts to HFU posters, and then emailers (pretty quiet tonight). Nasty storms in UP of Michigan and Wisconsin, as well as central Kansas, and panhandle of Texas. Email provided twice and phone. Shoutouts to other stations on air tonight, WDDR and Radio Nova. Next tune IDed. Timecheck and station ID.

337- Redhat IDs last song and then station. Time check. Glad you have us along tonight. Email provided twice. Phone number given. IDs prior songs. Welcomes posts and shoutouts to posters. Time to revisit ethnic music, like Turkish top 40. Not even going to try to pronounce words. Also have some Bollywood favorites. ID station.
340- "Çok Çok" by Edis.

Always great to hear the smooth, professional broadcasts of X-FM, also introducing us to new music!
