Good signal. Testing on my modified Sony ICF-2010 for stereo AM since it already has a Stereo IC sync detector decoder chip inside.

0111 Redhat talking about music and other topics, giving accurate TC, ID and gmail address, more talk ID's into "Learning to Fly" - Pink Floyd, ID, "Sinking feeling" into program of similar music (most of which I am not familiar ... thanks Redhat) with breaks of chat, shout outs and ID's.

S8 however often periods of a lot of noise which makes listening tough.

Tuned in at 0137utc on Champaign IL sdr with weak noisy S9 signal, barely hear audio, DJ spoke then music under the noise, at 0144 switched to Batavia IL sdr with much quieter S5 to S7 signal and can hear audio a bit better, also tried tuning in locally but it's a lost cause, neighborhood noise is S9, at 0151 sounds like punk rock or heavy metal, at 0156 he read my HFU post on the air, thanks.

X-FM coming in but the signal is a little rough at the moment. I don't know if it is equipment related here.

Ok, located some of problem here and audio is much better now. Got the station ID a few minutes ago. Great to hear X-FM again. Thanks for the broadcast.
