XFM and maybe another 6925 Am and USB 12/25 0005

XFM in AM Mode, "Broadcast willbegin in five minutes..." Music loop.

It also sounds like someone else is in there USB.

XFM is strong, USB is as well.

XFM here, S6 to S7. There were two carriers on for a while, 6925 and 6925.3. The second carrier seems to be gone now.

0020Z Peaking S6 out here on the west coast. Lots of fading at the moment but should improve as it's just sunset here now and the band is changing.

XFM heard here, currently weak during the shout-outs, then "...wishing everyone a Merry Christmas..." promo, now back to just above noise level at 0033z. 6925. Great audio quality when it's up but getting a lot of atmospheric noise level now in Colorado. Not enough for a QSL doggoneit...

0037 - Bing Crosby poking through the noise now with "White Christmas"...

0042 - "Most WOnderful Time of the Year"...

0045 - nice version of O Come O Come Emmanuel

0050 - momentarily blasted through with "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" maybe signals will start coming in better here in Colorado?

It's been a Very bizarre mix of up to 3 different signals out here in Montana since I head Ann.
Dit Dah radio in USB - hearing mosty just their CW Id's.

Some Play acting in AM mode - mixed with XFM music up to about 00:28 ut
Combined signals were up to S8-S10+

Starting with Rudolf the red nosed reindeer it is all XFM now!

S7 - S9 with the usual excellent audio.

00:38 ut  "Dreaming of a White Christmas" -  Baa Baa BA booooo..Bing Crosby!

Thanks and Merry Christmas to you XFM.

Thanks for the program Redhat. Like all the others Christmas music with a great signal but there are static crashes that are a problem. S3 to S-7 but generally a low noise floor tonight.

Happy Holidays

SDR catch: Similar details to others, most notable was the static levels tonight that hampered reception.  Here's some c-quam decodes though:

6925 khz X-FM C-QUAM STEREO 0025 UTC 25DE12.mp3

6925 khz X-FM C-QUAM STEREO 0121-0136 UTC 25DE12.mp3

Thanks for the Christmas show Redhat and Happy Holidays your way...
