X-FM 6285.0 kHz AM 02:13 UTC 24 JULY 2022

02:13 UTC - On air;

Shame about the noisy part of this band.

Yep, heard the instrumental sign-on music start at 0213 UTC. Signal is fair to good via Northern Utah SDR; no sign of a signal yet out here near Seattle, where we're still in daylight.

0217 UTC: Sound clips mashed together for introduction ... "Welcome to Radio Free America!"
0218 UTC: "No Control" by Pepper.
0221 UTC: Redhat on the mic. Talks about buying a new mic on Amazon after his microphone fiasco on the previous broadcast. Then transitioned to talk about the heat and adding AC.
0226 UTC: Reading emails and shout-outs to HFUnderground posters.
0230 UTC: Canned ID and then "Trials" by Starset, then "Sickness" by Grey Daze.
0237 UTC: Canned ID, then "Better Than You" by Metallica. Noise is increasing on the frequency.
0243 UTC: Redhat back on mic, reviewing just-played songs. Then reading HFU posts (including mine) and talking about tonight's reception conditions.
0252 UTC: Time check, canned ID, and then "Dead Memories" by Slipknot.
0257 UTC: "What Do I have to Do?" by Stabbing Westward.
0258 UTC: Still listening via the Northern Utah SDR, but I can hear the carrier starting to fade in on my radio near Seattle.
0301 UTC: Canned ID, then "Leave a Scar" by Marilyn Manson and "Locked in a Cage" by Skillet.
0309 UTC: Redhat back on mic, with information on song he just played, then HFU shout-outs, asking for patience on QSLs. After some more talking, at 0322 UTC, "Lullaby" by Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes.
* * *
0356 UTC: Tuned back in via the Weiser, Idaho, SDR to hear the old college radio classic "Detachable Penis" by King Missile, followed by "Something for Nothing" by Rush. Just barely audio is now being heard at the peaks on my radio near Seattle.

OK signal into the Great Plains despite passing storms.
Better Than You by Metallica around 0238.
Listening off and on throughout the night.
Storms left area and signal coming strong and clear.
Around 0400 music by King Missle and Rush.
Time to call it the night around 0430.
Thanks for the show, DJ Redhat.

0229  Readhat talking and into ID's asking for requests, "Music to the power of X."  Started a song - I was out of the room a few minutes, came back to end of song w/ Redhat giving information about the music, ID's some talk about the storms across Iowa and into my area (Southern Wisconsin), discussing next song, HFU, etc.

S7 although lots of lightning QRN here making listening difficult.  :(

X-FM, 6285AM, SIO 322. 7/24/22

Tuned in at 0323z to Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes - Lullaby. Very tough to pull out tonight with short fades and crashes from storms to my north.
Audio sounds just fine during the occasional quiet moments.

Great to hear you RH. I've been a travellin' man this summer, so I miss the shows. Good to know you're out there.

0327z - Good Charlotte - The River
