UNID Station 6940 kHz
« on: June 28, 2009, 2341 UTC »
I took a break from ham radio Field Day operations last night just before the thunderstorm hit us and heard a station on 6940 AM. This was at 0214Z on June 28.

The station was playing old Shirley Temple songs - Animal Crackers In My Soup, When I Grow Up, etc. I couldn't get an ID.

Statis crashes were horrific. Had to pull the plug at 0220Z before the lightning took out the rig.

That sounds like the stuff Dead Cat Radio has been running lately,but I've never known them to use AM.

I don't think it was Dead Cat Radio.  I did hear "This is Radio <huge static crash>".

That was my doing, over at Radio Casablanca.
