XSL
« on: January 28, 2021, 1539 UTC »
I have been wondering about the current state of XSL Slot Machine lately. I have been getting up early in the morning (central Illinois) and listening for it on known frequencies. I have a rather poor antenna at the moment and heard nothing. I listened on 4291, 6250, 6417, 6445, 8313, 8588 and 8703.5 kHz.

So I listened this morning on a few KiwiSDR stations.  I heard it on a more local one to me only on 8313 kHz. I tried a couple west coast USA KiwiSDR's. I heard XSL on all the above frequencies listed with very good signals. So it's still there, propagation is just not making it to central USA at this time.
