2332 UTC Unid funky R&B pop tune (S8 peaks with low modulation and OTH Radar QRM/light fading)
2341 UTC OM DJ with mention of HF Underground and something about playing the song until ? Something about "reports". Tough copy (Peskies also on the frequency)
2343 UTC OM with "Happy Halloween"
2344 UTC Same song as 2332 UTC
2346 UTC OM DJ chatting, then silence (or deep fade?)
2348 UTC OM DJ chatting, then silence
2355 UTC OM DJ says "Sorry guys....didn't know Old Time Radio was broadcasting...we're gonna try 6900 ...see ya in a moment". Here's a link to my direct recording on 6985 AM:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bG6wcjyJRWvhuWolpiIdpJ7kIJKeWnCp/view?usp=sharing

0001 UTC OM DJ chat....followed by the same song.  Signal is hitting S9 peaks and the modulation is much better! Fairly clear channel too!
0012 UTC OM DJ chat, into a Grammerly commercial and YL with spoken word and screaming sounds and cat screeching. Then dogs barking and wind howling
0018 UTC Spooky song OM singer...something about a box spring hog?
0022 UTC Different music now
0039 UTC Signal buried under wide band noise blob....no modulation detected. OFF?
Here's a link to my recording of 6900 AM....hope this is of some help to you! Thanks for the test!

Hey Unid OP! OTH Radar stands for Over the Horizon Radar! It's used by the military to detect incoming aircraft, missiles, etc.

23:38 UTC - I have a nice S8 and quiet carrier but very little modulation / audio. Actual frequency 6984.960 kHz;
23:41 UTC - Someone speaking and I heard "HF Underground";
23:43 UTC - "Happy Halloween".

Here is said "blob". I call it the "energy swath".

Briefly heard a man talking then faded out with moderate to low AM carrier. Squeezing the bandwidth to minimum I could hear some music on that carrier but at such a low level no copy.
