Carrier is making to Chicago, but cannot lock it due to some type of data stream down below.

About S4 to S5 here on the west coast. Modulation is low plus getting some splatter from RTN who is on 6925 and very strong here so unable to make out what is being said.

Super weak here on the SDR recording. Not much more than a carrier, which went off at 0356z, so likely the same station.
