S7 to S9 with sign-on loop.
0200 - 'in Motorola C-QUAM stereo'
0204 - "Mexican Radio", band seems to be nice and quiet this evening, S8 signal over S2 noise floor.  Occasional peaks to S9+
0249 - "Eulogy" by Tool.  Audio seems a little stronger now (relative to the carrier).  nice signal
0319 - S9 with "Doubt" by Delphic.
0348 - "On Your Radio" Joe Jackson.  Slow peak/fade cycle here now.  SW9+ on peaks, S5 to S6 during fades.

How about something from Revis??  "Seven" is good.  Thanks!!

Tuned in at 0159utc with kiwi sdr in Peoria IL, weak signal, hear house dance music and male announcing XFM, moved to Batavia IL kiwi sdr, XFM ID at 0218 then DJ announcing pop tune, weak noisy signal, at 0242utc switched to Barrington Hills IL kiwi sdr, good signal, selected synchronous AM, good fidelity, XFM ID at 0243 then heavy metal tune in minor chords, emailed him at xfmshortwave@gmail.com and he said my name on the air a minute later, nice program, thanks.

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com
