6885hkz  AM  2-20-2013

Now that Okeechobee is off 6875, they were S9 +40 here tonight, I can get a good listen to 6885

I do not speak Hebrew but I tuned into their internet stream and sure enough it is the same music!
4:21 ut Male announcer speaking but at S5  it is very close to my current S4 noise floor.

Not bad for a 5 kw AM sig that is not by design directed our way!

Started recording this around 3:40 ut  Very nice carrier on peaks but rather weak modulation especially when op is talking.

Mostly S5 - S7 w/ rare peaks at S8

4:05 ut can hear the op talking and I know I heard an ID but could only make out the word "radio".

4:08  decent copy on some very old time music - bands w/ no vocals - a few bars of London Bridges falling down or Yankee doodle (not sure - take your pick) near end of this number
4:10 - 4:20 ut several more old time tunes many deep fades back into the noise now - still waiting for a clear ID
4:20 ut  OP talking again - I cannot make out a single word this time - bummer.
4:20 ut  Back into old time big band music.
~4:40 ut off the air - remains UNID for me.
