Sounds like more CB/ham traffic being relayed

That thought crossed my mind as well.  Although OTR hasn't been transmitting the digital mode that the 24K0JID emission entails, and OTR hasn't IDed

That callsign is authorized for several HF frequency bands, 6770-6970 kHz being one of them.  25 kW ERP!  I wonder what 24K0J1D emission is.  24K indicates a decently wide signal (24 kHz bandwidth)

Edit:  I should have clicked the second link  :o

Station had come and gone off the air several times in the past 30 minutes or so.  Now hearing it back on 6925.1 with a S9 level signal and snippets of voice and "warbling" sounds (not sure how else to describe).  There's music in the background but there's also some sort of noise on the signal.  

1807 UTC - OM voice heard under the noise.  Talking about the football season being almost over.  Something about rock n' roll, then back into music at 1809.  

1810 UTC - "Can you turn that off? Jesus Christ!"

Hearing what sounds like a WWV relay on 6914 USB.  Very weak but I can hear the time pips.  UTE/data burst QRM around 6916 or so at times.  Right at noise level but there is something there.

AM carrier right at 6925.0 kHz.  Hearing music from The Godfather, a bit noisy but readable

Getting bits and pieces of audio on 6935 kHz. Sounds like it might be a YL talking but difficult to tell for sure. All I can really be sure of is the carrier at this point.

OMs and YL talking, sounds like Bogart (old movie/radio audio?)

S7 signal level with nice audio on the WebSDR


1951 - Dramatic music

2773
This is another relay of Amphetamine Radio (was originally being relayed on 6925 AM)

2774
Now on 6950 AM and 6925 AM.  Sounds like somebody is relaying Radio Azteca via a SDR.

Saw them pop up on 6912.5 kHz AM and 6937.5 kHz AM as well

2775
Discussion of sacrificing a virgin above the top of an inverted-V antenna.   Nice strong signal with powerful carrier and nice audio.
