Excellent signal -- SNR 20-25 dB with the usual high quality audio and great music.    I can't listen in real time tonight, but am leaving the IQ recorder running to enjoy the show tomorrow.

Can't hear the signal out here near Seattle yet, but listening via the Northern Utah SDR, which has a fair signal ...

0100 UTC: "My City Was Gone" by Pretenders, then Redhat chatting and reading emails and HFU posts, etc.
0108 UTC: After a canned "X-FM Halloween" ID, "Werewolves of London" by Warren Zevon and then "Frankenstein" by Edgar Winter.
0120 UTC: While checking several SDRs, I missed some of the broadcast. The signal's not making it to SDRs in Idaho or Washington state right now, so I'm back to the Northern Utah SDR. Anyway, tuned back in as Redhat read more emails/posts, gave the email address, etc.
0124 UTC: "Private Idaho" by B-52s. (a GREAT classic!) 
0128 UTC: Redhat back with intro to song, a quick HFU shout-out, then "Money for Nothing" by Dire Straits.
0136 UTC: Canned ID into "Mexican Radio" by Wall of Voodoo. (another GREAT song from back in the day!)
0140 UTC: Canned ID into "Kodachrome" by Paul Simon, followed by "I Sat by the Ocean" by Queens of the Stone Age.
0148 UTC: Redhat talking about his turntable, reading HFU posts, etc.
0153 UTC: Now that we're past local sunset, I can hear Redhat's chatting making it through the noise on my own radio out here in Lake Stevens, Wash.
0155 UTC: "Monster Mash" by Bobby "Boris" Pickett, then "Hello Walls" by Faron Young.

Thanks for all the music! Nice program, as usual for X-FM.
