I've been hearing a weak carrier since 2145 UTC on 6254.1 AM with occasional imagined audio. Signal seemed to pick up a bit around sunset and I believe a man announcer at 2240 UTC and occasional bits of music at threshold level. Maybe a spur? Nothing according to Ianns chat...hmmm

Hi,

That station on 6254 kHz must be Radio Marabu, from Germany. Heard here, but in skip zone before 20.00 UTC

Heard some music as I was about to reply at 2328, but signal faded to nothing.  Audio is coming up again.  The atmospheric noise is very high tonight.  Talk by male announcer at 2329 UTC.  S5-S6 in NY, but most of that is noise.  OK, now at 2329 very easy to recognize "Take Five" by Dave Brubeck.
