Good signal here with interval signal, ID, and into Dr. Who music.  Carrier seems to be about 6950.33
S7 signal over S1 noise, so very good copy.

Still a big signal @ 2305, getting ready to sign, playing Goodnight Sweetheart.

10/13/13, MAC Shortwave on 6950 kHz AM
2200 UTC playing some Deep Purple

Great daylight signal, peaking 10 over S-9 in Lansing, MI
Little noise, sounds like a licensed shortwave broadcaster!
