X-FM putting a S8-S9 signal into NH this evening - couple of S-units above the noise.

0210z - Says he's using his "backpack studio" tonight and that accounts for the audio quality not being up to his normal excellent standards. (Sounds pretty awful now and then - peaking S9+ now). Op audio is ok, the music is mangled.

0220z "10,000 tunes and 9,000 are corrupt" (or something like that), and thanks for the shout-outs...
0226z xfmshortwave@gmail.com
0248z Off (it seems cheeseburgers are more important than pirate radio)
