I've noticed strange stuff on here as well...5795.5 kHz with odd  tone bursts & MCW...after awhile, they (?) are  usually running numbers in sp. about 11/12pm around 5883kHz...sometimes it seems like it was 'training' vs 'actual', although that's just a guess on my part...

It's pretty good if you have a good ground. Nice flexible wire.

...Spanish 5 number groups in AM (not Cuban) following a MCW broadcast earlier on 5795.5  w/code burst traffic at 06:50 utc (same transmitter, I believe) I am also picking up the signal on my Sony SW7600GR/ with the antenna folded.... sinpo 53454... Signal strongest on my North / South facing wire....numbers transmission ends at 07:28, carrier remains ....odd tones & some kind of burst transmission at 07:30...more tones at 07:35...again at 07:40...definite pattern, repeated every five minutes for about 20 seconds each time...again 07:45....07:49:49 to 07:50:12...carrier disappears at

Faint reception of un ID'd station

Ricky Nelson 'Why must I be a teenager in love' followed by ' Lonely teardrops' by Jackie Wilson...fade out at 315 utc.

Sounds like the same signal I picked up. See my post for 'The Voice of Doom'. From the signal strength I'd say it was broadcast from Northern California. The second voice you heard was audio from the computer game that was played during the broadcast.

 On 04/05/09 (utc date) I picked up 'The Voice of Doom' on 6925/USB 'Broadcasting from Phobos '
with comments about a computer game being played during broadcast.

 Listened from 0143 to 0224 UTC sign off

Good signal into San Francisco, CA with a SINPO of 43344

I am using a Yaesu 817nd with Par end-fed swl antenna.  I also picked up the station on a Sony 7600GR with whip antenna.
