I have a loud AM signal, S9, on 6949.5 KHz AM with what sounds like a speech by Al Gore (??) on energy usage.

Audible into GA this afternoon, 2342 UTC. "Its getting hot in here..." <g>. Some pescadore QRM from 6950. Male voice speaking after the song, tough to hear due to the QRM.

Signal is about S3 here.
