I don't know what it is and why it's in USB. It's coming in strong too. Anyone else have it?

It's WJHR, a religious shortwave station that is little more than a ham station. 
Now listening on an Afedri SDR with a 450 ft Sky Loop

I have NEVER heard of it. Short-wave info says they put out a whopping 50 watts. It's like instead of LPFM they  are LPSW. How'd they get a liscense for this? And it's weird that a broadcasting station is in USB.

It should be 50 kW. US SWBC stations cannot be licensed for under 50 kW.
