Smithereens - "A Girl Like You" at 0154 UTC, poor copy in and out of the noise so far. X-FM Shortwave ID at 0201 UTC.

X-FM is about S6 here in NH tonight, just about even with the noise level so the QSB sometimes makes it tough to copy.  Also some kind of RTTY-like QRM now and then but not bad so far.

0200z X-FM ID, says he blew up his amplifier today so he's running low power
