Radio Free Whatever, presumed ID from others' postings, 1-17-14, 0123-0158, 6849.7 AM, only a weak carrier here at 0123 with just hints of audio.  a tad stronger now at 0155, but not much...can hear some talk, then into music at 0157 which sounds like men at work's "down under."

SDR recording catch. Super weak here, 0112 sign on. Some audio heard from time to time, but the band has gone to bed by this time for anything but DX.
