Originally listening at 0101: Unfamiliar, pleasant rock, Redhat talking and shouting out to folks who logged on HF Underground, ID into music.  Signal was S7 and very noisy.  QRN and fading made it hard to listen.

0344 Redhat giving contact information into more music, 0349 canned ID into music.  Now S8 still with QRN but no where as bad.

Thanks for the broadcast.

Been listening for the last hour or so in Washington DC. Started out barely readable, but much stronger now,

too many radios, not enough antennas

Still here at 04:09 UTC - switched to a different antenna (should have done that before) peaking between 20-40 over right now. Nice to have some real radio to listen to. I lean more to alt rock but it's all good. Thank you. Smoke 'em if ya got 'em.

What I love about X-FM  is that the operator genuinely has no snobbery about music categories, he just plays whatever moves him, whatever he likes. This is maybe _the_ theme of pirate broadcasting, back to the Radio Caroline days, it's true of most operators, come to think of it. Even when the music style isn't my usual thing I learn something, and there's always a good idea in there.  Sometimes there are themes from music over the years, which is pretty much a pirates-only thing.  I'm more a rocker too and listen to very little current stuff, but I'm hearing good songs tonight. Cheers to XFM for this incredible signal and for flying the freak flag, high, as Jimi Hendrix used to say.

edit: signal into Baja Arizona has only improved over the last hour

Good evening Redhat!  I'm not able to listen in real time tonight, but I've been running the SDR recorder since nearly the beginning and will leave it running to catch the rest.  I just checked on it and your signal is beautiful here -- strong and clear.  Your programs are a real tour de force on so many levels.  I'm sure I will enjoy this one when I replay it in the coming days.   Thanks for all that you do!

I play what I like also. When you offer something different others appreciate it.

Totally epic marathon broadcast, RedHat. Thank you so much. Been doing other stuff but when I catch you on the air I'll keep it on till the end. Thanks for doing your part to keep us sane out here.
