Radio True North, 6940am, 3-16-13, 35332
About S6 on peaks, but very quick fades down to S1 or so making for tough listening.
Audio sounds clear on peaks

ID at 0252z

SDR recording catch. 0237z sign on with about an S6 signal. Off at 0253z.

A carrier appeared again at 0312z on 6940, but the frequency was buried by a UTE by then.
