Propagation was deteriorating rapidly through all bands after this time.. but really good morning SWL...

4:05 4:14 z tuned into very old time music - 20's - 30's ? , audio suggest old 78's or older cylinder recordings.
Signal S6 - S8 good audio levels for music, relatively good listening considering the fades and storm static.
4:14 - 4:17 z Male talking, possible ID? -low audio levels? - could not make out a word he said.
4:17 - 4:43 z Same genre music
4:43  4:44 z Op talking , same as before, some talk over music, ID? Off at 4:44z

I possibly have logged this station before but do not have my older logs, QLS's or recordings  anymore?

Spy Numbers / Numbers station 13750 khz USB 12:08 utc 6-24-13

13750 khz USB found in progress at 12:08 utc - ended 12:20 utc

Computer generated voice, female, numbers  0 thru 5 (in English) in groups of 8 separated by short pause.
Other pauses with speech and ending speech I could not make out. (English?)

This is the first time I've heard this one.

I have a 12 minute recording I'll listen to when I have time.

Also there was a weak AM carrier at 13750 khz but it was weak enough it did not interfere.

I've noticed CIAO the past few nights and tonight I have it at S7 - good enough copy to enjoy the laid back music.

BUT - Tonight I am also hearing some Spanish programming and music fading up in the background regularly -
I do not hear any time pips? -Still might be the Cuban station on 530 khz?

Interesting to note that the NDB's are rather week tonight as well...

5:55 - 6:05 ut  540 khz AM coming up and splattering the sig some - 530 khz now sounds stronger in Spanish - just recognized the word Cuba several times w male announcer talking...I suppose CIAO could be transmitting Spanish programming?
