At 0112utc, I detect a weak carrier in usb mode, bits of audio, 20 miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago, Kenwood R-2000 & dipole.
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

6925 AM, 0111, 1/1/14.  There was an AM carrier there, then enough audio to tell it was a man talking, then gone about 0114.

There might have been a USB signal very slightly lower - 6924.8 ish with music in the background. It was gone before I could try to separate them.
