XFM - 6945AM - 0152z - 12/16/2012

XFM ID and stating transmission will begin in 3 minutes.  S7 and great audio!

Update:  Lots of fades, but signal is back up now. S7 to S9.
Playing 'You Are Invited' @ 0328z.  Then ID and into 'Frontier Psychiatrist' [according to Shazam].

Still blasting out at S9 @ 0508z, I think getting ready to sign off.
First class audio!  Playing Dave Brubeck
Thanks for the show.

01:46 to 01:51  several ID's with a wavy type music in between.
01:52 ID "XFM in now on the air"  Male voice sounded a bit synthesized.
Lost signal 01:57  Signal was s7 in Illinois and then dropped.

Very cool for for those brief moments!  ...Steve

I'm copying the C-QUAM AM stereo right now but fades are making it rough at times, very rich sounding audio on the signal peaks - amazing sound!

Thanks RH!
