Carrier popped up shortly after Amphetamine Radio signed off, 6925.2 kHz, hearing bits and pieces of music at 2350 UTC

2353 UTC - now closer to 6925.1 kHz, music getting stronger
2358 UTC - massive signal increase, now pushing S9 and sounding great, nice big audio
0007 UTC - ID, The Crusaders, shoutout to Amphetamine Radio :D and back to music, signal is S7-S8 now with great audio

Seven Trees Radio STR 7TR
6880 kHz 6.880 MHz 6.88 MHz 6880 AM
May 2nd, 2018

2200 UTC - "The Seeker" - strong signal with some fading
2202 UTC - SIO 333 to SIO 444 on peaks, S7 carrier, peaking up at S9
2203 UTC - some very minor freebander/pescadore QRM on 6880 LSB, barely noticeable
2205 UTC - The Who - Won't Get Fooled Again
2209 UTC - "Tequila!" with 6880 LSB chatter in and out (completely gone on peaks!)
2212 UTC - very strong FSK QRM from 6877 USB
2213 UTC - FSK QRM gone
2214 UTC - moved up to 6905 kHz
2215 UTC - spinning the VFO around at this point....sorry dude, but pick a frequency and stick with it not going to get into an internet fight here, but if you want people to listen to your station its a good idea to stay on one frequency.  if you must QSY, then do so, but don't spin the VFO and expect your listeners to follow you around the band  ::)
2217 UTC - back on 6905 kHz AM
2225 UTC - off

Sounds like it could be Italian....lots of QRM from (legit) aeronautical communications on 6562 kHz USB.  Very poor frequency choice on the freebanders' part...

Hearing some Spanish speakers chatting away on 6889 kHz LSB this afternoon/evening.  Noisy conditions so barely readable but can make out Spanish words at this point...

Bits and pieces of audio on 6770 kHz - the usual Old Time Radio OTR frequency.  Carrier easily visible on the SDR waterfall.  I love the spring - OTR coming in nearly daily again :D

2127 UTC - there's a carrier there for sure....getting bits and pieces of audio, OMs talking
2128 UTC - lots of fading making copy very difficult...strong carrier (S6-S7) but weak audio/modulation
2134 UTC - "that's 5000 dollars to use any way you like" music heard
2136 UTC - OM talking about pharmaceutical drug overdose "just like heroin, basically" "we're at a target location right now"
2138 UTC - "get out of the car! get out of the car!"
2140 UTC - likely audio from COPS or another similar cop show
2152 UTC - bits and bits of unintellible audio...followed by an unmodulated (or nearly so) carrier

Seven Trees Radio 6880 kHz 6.880 MHz 6.88 MHz 6880 AM
May 1st, 2018

Hopefully Seven Trees Radio has found a good QRM-free frequency :D as they were on 6900 kHz, 6905 kHz and 6925 kHz earlier tonight

0100 UTC - The Doors - LA Woman (live recording)
0111 UTC - The Doors - Lover Her Madly (live recording)
0113 UTC - Seven Trees Radio IDs over music, then another ID (also at 0113 UTC)
0113 UTC - very strong AM audio, SIO 444, S9+10 to S9+20 on peaks
0116 UTC - Owl hooting sound fx
0117 UTC - The Doors - Break On Through (To The Other Side) (live recording)

Seven Trees Radio 6905 kHz 6.905 MHz 6905 AM 6925 kHz 6.925 MHz 6900 kHz 6.900 MHz

Strong AM audio at 0044 UTC tune in "Bring The Noise" S9+20db!

Likely Seven Trees Radio given the audio quality, signal strength and frequency choices (they started on 6905 kHz, then went to 6925 kHz, then down to 6900 kHz, apparently 6900 kHz has the best SWR)

0050 UTC - moved up to 6925 kHz
0053 UTC - dropped back down to 6900 kHz
0053 UTC - QRM from Spanish speaking freebanders on 6905 LSB
0057 UTC - off

Came on right after Amphetamine Radio signed off

S9 to S9+10db very loud

0041 UTC - extremely distorted audio, OM talking, something about "basement", then off

Peace Radio pirate 6920 kHz 6.920 MHz 6.92 MHz 6920 USB

SSTV at tune in, some music, QRM, then SSTV again at 2300 UTC.  Very strong signal

S9+10 on the MA SDR, S8 locally.

2300 UTC - another SSTV (false start) then another SSTV
2303 UTC - strong Spanish language QRM, luckily this station's signal is strong enough to punch through
2304 UTC - music music, great audio and still pushing 10db over S9
2312 UTC - very strong Spanish speaking freebanders on 6920 kHz LSB bleeding over
Per other reports, this is Peace Radio / Radio Peace

Hearing weak Spanish language chatter (OM and YL talking, this is a well-known radiotelephone link frequency), pretty weak but can make out that its a telephone-like conversation (probably husband and wife talking). 

The band is looking decent tonight.  OTR coming in nicely on 6770 kHz, I bet we'll have several other radiotelephone and other "bumps in the night" from Latin America and North America this evening if conditions persist

I can hear bits and pieces of music at 2145 UTC on 6770 kHz AM at 2145 UTC tune-in time

Unfortunately there's a very strong data signal on 6765 USB that's making traditional AM tuning impossible.  In USB mode I can hear an OM talking at 2150 UTC.  SIO 222.  OM talking with YL, sounds like an old radio show (of course) at 2151 UTC

2152 UTC - "such a beautiful..." was a S5 for a few seconds (lots of QRM above and below 6770 kHz right now)
2152 UTC - OM continues talking, with background music now

Weak OM talking, lots of fading down into the noise, but heard "blast wave" and "the Japanese cruiser"

2117 UTC - deep fade, sounded like it disappeared
2118 UTC - faded back up a tiny bit, OM talking
2119 UTC - "YO-160" "Pensacola" "LST-52" "ARDC" "only slightly damaged"
2120 UTC - "Wilson" "Stack" "Huge" "LCT-874" "these were the first pictures taken by surface craft"
2121 UTC - "about 1800 yards from the epicenter of the bomb blast"
2122 UTC - switched to Mass. based remote SDR, OM talking about damage to ships, music in background
2123 UTC - big signal increase, now up to S8, "this troop transport received extensive damage" "radio and radar antenna"
2123 UTC - music continues "this ship, the USS Nevada"
2128 UTC - "as a result of the bomb burst" - then more music "damage to the starboard side was less severe"
2129 UTC - dramatic music "Joint Task Force 1"
2130 UTC - "the primary purpose of Test Baker" "resulting from an atomic bomb explosion"
2131 UTC - fast fade / drop in signal modulation
2133 UTC - must be discussion of Operation Crossroads
2136 UTC - "H hour minus 30 seconds"
2137 UTC - "5...4...3...2...1...fire"
2138 UTC - off suddenly (transmitter got hit by the shock wave!)  :D

Sounds very similar to the traffic heard on 14422 USB at the same time...these guys are right above the top edge of the 20 meter ham band. 

UNID freebanders/outbanders above 20 meter ham band
14422 kHz
14.422 MHz

Hearing several Italian speaking stations having a ham-radio like discussion on 14422 USB this morning.  Lots of signal reports, standard "ham like" or even freeband CB style communications, ranging from SIO 222 to SIO 444, some very weak stations fading to just above the noise at points as well...seems like a relatively active frequency.
