Am hearing what sounds like new agey/spacey music above the static. Not coming in very clear here in Chicago, but I can tell something is there.

Equipment: Sony 2010 75 ft outdoor antenna

I am hearing music and voice on AM (with sync) on 6925. The band is all over the place tonight. Really strong unlicensed spanish operator on 6920. Signal is fading from poor to fair. 2222. Seems like the operator is doing lots of live mic talking.

1:45 Music, unable to make it out but sounded like Rock
1:47: Sounds like a new song
1:51: A new song, sounds like classic rock again
1:52: Voice (maybe an ID?) I cannot make it out
1:53: More music
1:56 Siren song effect
1:57 Heard "I want to talk about grammer" than talked about internets impact on spelling and grammer. Talked about people leaving poorly spelled comment on youtube where thousands of people will read.

Shortwave Broadcast / Radio Kuwait on 15540 khz

Put up a new antenna yesterday (75 ft Wire Antenna) and picked up this station. Radio Kuwait's signal was booming... very very clear. Had American soul music for awhile, than ended the English broadcast (I made a video of the end of broadcast), followed up by what sounded like religious instruction. I went to the gym and came back and some Nigerian evangelical station was broadcasting.

Caught the very end of the broadcast. Just the Men at Work song (Which of course is now stuck on my head!). Great signal here in Northern Illinois (Rockford, IL right on border between Illinois and Wisconsin), very clear, good bass. Wish I would have caught more.

Equipment: Sony 2010, using a indoor Slinky antenna


any id?

Really strong signal, but was basically a voice saying "Tango, Whisky, Zulu, Golf" etc ended with a "that is all" and went off the air. Sounds like it was military. Can someone explain what this was? Some kind of test message, a drill or EAM?
