Severe QRM here as well, I can get some audio on the LSB.  6935 is not a good frequency to use lately, with the UTE.

Just tuned in at 0005 UTC and the signal is fairly clear on 6935 AM at S7 peaks with some fading. During the fades, the QRM is annoying though. RFW ID at 2305 UTC into UNID tune.
0010 UTC The QRM on USB is pretty heavy duty, but there is a peskie now on LSB....caught between the rock and the hard place tonight DJ Dickweed!

Hearing music fading in and out of the noise at 0034, don't know the tune but the noise is kind of bad
here.

Can just recognize Dickweed @co voices at 0037, but can't make out anything.  Nothing like I usually get them.... but I have some electrical noise going making things even more difficult...
