UNID 6940 khz AM 4:14 ut - 4:34 ut 9-9-13

6940 khz AM  S5 - S6 and rare 1 sec. S7 now and then, under the noise when below S5
4:13 ut  Saw this on the waterfall while listening to RRML so I recorded 21.5 mins of the audio. (what there was anyway)
Had to notch out a rtty sig that was in your upper side band.
Could just hear some rock music down in the noise but very short S7 peaks sounded like some really good audio.
4:33 ut some talking and possible Id? then off at 4:34 ut

Caught the carrier and verrry faint audio via 6940 LSB, per tip from Token.  Mostly wiped out by ute on USB side.

SDR recording catch. 0401 sign on. S7 signal, but due to the PSK a few kHz up had to use Sync-AM with the LSB only.
Heard a few songs, "Black Hole Sun", "Smells Like Teen Spirit", Blink-182 "Dammit"
0434 IDs by OM and YL. Tough copy, heard mentions of 100 thousand watts, new rock, Minnesota, and either "93 the edge" or "93 the x" This leads me to believe this was a re-transmission of KXXR 93.7.
0435 Off
