UNID 6975.5 AM 2244 UTC 5 DEC 2023

2244 UTC Weak carrier noted with bits of music Possibly European?
2248 UTC Some music solid above the noise now..."Free Bird"-Lynyrd Skynyrd
(Frequency seems to be just a little on the low side of 6975.5)
2258 UTC Still have the carrier but the audio isn't breaking through the high noise floor (also some OTHR)
Maybe related to this post from the other night? https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,122173.0.html

Here's a 2 minute recording from 2148-2150 UTC...the only clear audio I could hear:

Does anybody want to claim this one?  :)

I see and hear the carrier but nothing else.  It is a weak signal here.

I saw a very weak carrier on the waterfall of Brookfield WI sdr and barely detected it with CW mode, then carrier went off.
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com
