Wow, what a signal!  I was tuning around and heard C&W music on 2336, and thought it's a bit odd to hear this sort of music from an international broadcaster.  Figures it's our good friend Mr. Tobacco.  S8 in New York, very good audio.
Thanks for the shoutout at 2345!

Thanks for the tip Daniel.  Good signal and audio on the Pardinho KiwiSDR at 2212 UTC with Bryan Ferry "Slave To Love".

At 0306 UTC, faint audio with a man talking.  Carrier is near 6945.1 kHz.

Barely audible for me at 14:34 UTC. Hope the band will open.

Skipmuck, yesterday the carrier was just under 6930 kHz.  I was able to hear the beacon on several KiwiSDRs in South America.

Thanks Chris and Sigma for your helpful replies.  I've already ordered that AM bandstop filter from Amazon.  For now, I think I will wait until AirSpy release their pre-selector board for the HF+.  I like Chris' use of a tablet for listening to his KiwiSDR around the house and the backyard, so I'll probably buy the KiwiSDR now while the drop is available.

Chris, can you please comment on the HF performance of the KiwiSDR vs. the Airspy HF+?  With the drop, they're both priced at $199, and I'm thinking of buying one of them.  I know the KiwiSDR is probably the easiest and cheapest way to get an SDR online, but I'm mainly interested in how they compare to each other as a stand alone receiver.  If you (or anyone else) have experience with the two of these, I'd appreciate some feedback, particularly how they handle nearby strong signals from AM stations.  My only SDR is the SDRPlay RSP1, and it's prone to images due to strong signals.

I received the same, for a reception via the K1RA SDR.  Thanks Senile Jones!

Propagation is not cooperating; not even a carrier here in NY.  But I'm hearing Christmas music, with an ID at 1628 on a KiwiSDR.  S7 in Virginia. 

The band has already gone long for me, not even a trace of a carrier here in NY.  But I'm getting nice reception on a KiwiSDR.  "Baby It's Cold Outside" at 1915 UTC.  ID at 1919.  "White Christmas" at 1921.  "Santa Claus" by the Sonics at 1923 UTC. "Silent Night" at 1936.  Really enjoying these traditional Xmas songs; thanks Senile Jones!  SSTV image of Santa's helper next to a recycling bin, at 1943, then off the air at 1944.

S4 here in NY at 1634 UTC.  Stronger here than the UNID on 6955 at the moment.

Nice Xmas piano music at 16:29 UTC tune in; S8 in NY, very nice audio.

"Santa Baby" at 1614 UTC tune in; S8 in NY.  Holiday greetings from Harold & Sanjay from Partial India Radio.  Signal fading out here unfortunately at 1630 UTC.  Listening to a KiwiSDR now, playing one of my favorites, "Father Christmas" by the Kinks at 1646 UTC.  National anthem at 1650 UTC.  Off at 1653 UTC.

Same received here.  Praise Vishnu and Ganesh!
