Welcome to the forum WildDog! What are you using for a receiver and an antenna?

This signal on 6140 might actually be a legal utility beacon. I may move the message if it belongs in another sub-forum.

Jim,

I use a old receiver 139B, http://www.crystalradio.cn/data/attachment/forum/202301/02/113513oewlwxxcmci6qw99.jpg

The antenna is 5 meters long wire.

That forum at  http://www.crystalradio.cn/ looks pretty interesting. I used Google to translate to English and look around a little.  That's an interesting radio too
