I hear it also with a decent sig, but audio level is low. Playing music now which has a better level and sounds good.

Great signal here but subject to some fading. Easily S9+10 on peaks. Currently playing something that sounds like Metallica at 0113 UTC (10/28). Then into a "C-QUAM Stereo, this is XFM Stereo Shortwave ID".

Now on 6965 coming in around S6 with some slight fading, usual smooth sounding wide audio and nice musical selection.  Thanks for the show tonight X-FM!
