Unid 6950 AM 1720z 6Apr13

Rebroadcast of CBS radio coverage during D-Day invasion 1944. Takes place as invasion is starting and nobody is sure if the rumors of the invasion are true or if it's a German trick. Strong, clear S9 signal. Very interesting listening. No ID yet.

Thanks!

Not even the slightest hint of a carrier here at 1806Z.

Too bad, as I'd really love to hear this.

Pretty good AM signal 1817 UTC King Of Norway speaking...  SIO: 343 S-9 +10
Suspect an Northeast location, that's why you can't hear it Skeezix
Still going 1942 signal improving.  Sign off 1950*
According to wikepedia Richard C. Hottelet, CBS correspondent is still alive, born 1917.

Didn't hear anything from 1910 to about 1930, then starting getting a faint voice.  Not enough to ID anything.  Went away around 1950 as others have reported.
