Slightly above S7, here in N. Alabama.

"The Music Sounds Best on XFM" is not just a slogan, it's the truth.  You really do have the best audio quality, out there.  I also appreciate how you run your station as a "true station", rather than a gimmick.  That's something I've always appreciated about the Euros, and I definitely appreciate it, about XFM.

No QSL necessary.  Just wanted to send well-deserved kudos.

Tuned in at 0325 on Normal IL sdr, fair/poor S7 to S9 signal, excellent audio, soft rock tune playing that I don't recognize, I'm listening in CQUAM stereo, at 0337 signal improved to S9+10 at times, at 0343 read email from Mr. Farley's wife saying he had brain surgery and is in hospice care, he read my hfunderground  post on air, at 0354 switched to Franktown CO sdr with better reception but it failed after a minute, at 0359 switched to Batavia IL sdr with fair S9 reception, thanks for the nice program.

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com
