Can tell there is a man talking but can't make out the words. Did hear what sounded like a klaxon going off.
At 2248 switched to USB and signal was much improved. Turns out that it is an actual alert, there is a nuclear attack.

The broadcast is likely part of an ARG (Alternate Reality Game) for the possible Fallout 4 RPG video game by developers Bethesda.

This all started when a mysterious website - http://thesurvivor2299.com - appeared a few weeks ago. People have been following clues and decoding messages that appear on the site. Today a morse code message was played on that website and it listed a radio frequency. So we have been trying to get someone to listen in on that freq for a message.

Weak here in SE Kansas, can hear DTMF tones and EAS tones.  Can hear a male voice speaking but hard to make out any words.
Happiness is a good antenna system.
