Call of the Loon. QRM from another station a few hundred Hz higher.

Ditto, on 6925 USB, around 0102z, distinctive loon call for Northwood, but no positive ID heard.  Indistinct voice sounding like political speeches, crowd cheers, possible parody version of "America the Beautiful," several loon calls without positive ID between 0102z-0150z.  SINPO - 23211

Also, 6925.6 USB, Radio Jamba International at same time, music box type tones, positive voice IDs, familiar RJI mix, man talking in what sounded like lessons for self-hypnosis.  Repeat of same show at 0200 UTC, no overlap with Northwoods on repeat.  SINPO - 33222

I wondered what that mess was? I could make out two stations but couldn't get decent audio on either.

Op's and listeners need to start spreading out. I've been on 6950 a couple of times recently and have had zero reports. Both dx'ers and pirates are getting too fixated on 6925,IMO.

Agreed. 6925: It's the old 7415. And 7425 before that.

I don't check 6950/6955 as often as I should. I'll try to more often in the future.

I'll add 6950 to my scan list.  So far I've got 6850, 6875, 6925, 6935, 6945, 6955, as well as 6700, 5386 and 3431 for TCS.
