There are two stations on 6931 kHz.  One is an unknown, that has sent SSTV.  The other is Indy Radio, Spain.

Both Indy Radio on 6931.05v and UNID on 6931.00 at S9 on the K3FEF KiwiSDR. Much weaker at the Northern Utah KiwiSDR but only a carrier from Indy Radio there.

0415 UTC-Music
0418 UTC-Scottie 1 SSTV
0420 UTC-OFF
0441 UTC-Now on 6931.20 AM, music
0443 UTC-Moving the VFO around
0443 UTC-OFF

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using a Sony ICF-2010 with a 25 meter (80 ft) longwire antenna in a tree.

Indy was strong on Chris's Kiwi w/ the V-Beam but some SSTV racket and a guy speaking English w/an American Mid-Atlantic accent playing power pop just ran over them.

Because he was using this odd frequency, playing music pirates donít normally play, and was even swishing the VFO around, this seems like an attempt to jam rather than an accident (in my opinion). There are lots of other frequencies to use yet some people seem to think they absolutely must use 6930 no matter what.

You should have heard the fights for 6955 when WBCQ took over 7415. A few months later a Chilean broadcaster set up on 6956.5 running  just enough power to render 6955 useless. Everyone headed to either the secondary freq. of 6950 and 6925 came into play, or 6924.3 for me as that's where my WWII surplus xtal for 6925 oscillated. Pirates were broadcasting from 6850 to 6950.

Whatever is on 6931 now has a nice signal. It sounds like the male and female who are normally behind the mic for Indy, but the band is noisy and the other station while weaker, is still mixing in.
