Token, you da man!  Are the radiograms encrypted?

Schedule shows WINB, but no idea what data format this is (if there is data in this mess!).  Pretty constant S4 signal.  Not a (local) noise signal as I was also able to monitor it from one of the MD kiwis......

0102Z update:  hearing some roughly modulated audio now on the kiwi, and audio is improving. Those LSB spikes are gone from the kiwi now but i'm still getting them at my location.

ID presumptive based on short-wave.info schedule.  Great signal into MD this AM.  At least SIO 444....bouncing around between S3 and 4. 

Sounds like techno music of some sort.  background to S3.  lots of static, unfortunately. Occasional CW....maybe "FLZ"?   Hope to hear more of this station, liked the tunes.
2325Z:  getting stronger, marginally.

2114 UTC:  S2-3 here.  Some deep fades.

Take a look at THIS thing....the blob, not the 6895kHz signal.

One song, S5+ then OTA

S5 here, great signal and audio.

2217 UTC update:  faded down to S1; in and out.

Awww it faded out at exactly the worst time

Rebroadcast of news coverage of the 08 December 1941 joint session of Congress.  Good signal (S4+) and audio but faded to noise at 2110Z

Xmas music.  S3 with some static and fades

1919Z: It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
1921Z: Christmas is just around the corner
1927Z: Its the most wonderful time of the year
1929Z: Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
1939Z-ish:  OTA

OK, I give up.  Apparently any antenna that runs in my backyard picks up a hell of a lot of QRM from somewhere.  Probably something in my office, but who knows. 

Back to the LOG in the front yard and it's very long coax run.

going to try one more thing....at the moment my antenna feeds into a balun probably 80 feet from my shack, so there's a pretty significant run of coax between there and my radio.  Since the antenna now goes all the way around the house, i can tap into it probably 6 feet away now.  Will do that, drop the gain, and see what happens. 

At the moment I can run the gain all the way up on 20m, but anything lower and i have to drop it by half and pretty much lose any useful signal.

Schedule says WBCQ or Pyongyang...neither seems right. S3 signal.

0432Z-"Shake your ass" by Blowfly
0435Z-"Portable Radio" by Clout
0438Z-female talking about speaking on the radio w/ male.
0446Z-some odd music mix

Maybe it is WBCQ....the program guide at http://wbcq.com/schedule/ has a more diverse set than I expected...

Noise or overload?  Which SDR? Did you try backing down the gain?
AFEDRI-SDR.  Don't think it's overload, it's not blanketing across the whole spectrum (and, if it matters the SDRDX OVL light isn't flashing!).  I have an AM station close so thought that might be the issue but the HPF is working great as I barely see anything under 2.5MHz even with the gain pushed up. If i drop the gain i lose pretty much even broadcast HF signals....

Thought it might be the hot tub since the antenna runs near that (and my heat pump) but shut those off and the noise persists.  Suppose it could be the neighbor's....

here's one of the 'hot spots'....the noise spikes are about 26.5kHz apart.....
