Old Time Radio 6770 AM at 0016 UTC, 4/6/15

At peaks catching a talk show going on, Amos & Andy maybe? Just above the noise floor here at a S6. Wish it came in better. Does this station run all the time? Just curious. ;D

I, too, was wondering about how long this station stays on the air.  Caught it this morning with a faint signal deep in the noise floor ~0830 UTC this morning.
Reminds me of an automated beacon programmed to play old radio shows.

Maybe S1. It is above the noise floor, but utes above and below it are nearly wiping it out here.

As noted in one of my previous loggings, does Old Time Radio count as pirate anymore? It seems to be pratically transmitting 24/7, or well, at least it is often on air when ~40m propagation is open to here.

Other than a few days when it was absent, it does indeed seem to be on 24/7. S9 signal now at 1141z.

Been awhile since I have checked for Old Time Radio, but anyway, it is propagating to here tonight.

Around S5 with occasional deep fades and a little static crashing. Good enough for a casual copy.

Seems like I can always check 6770 kHz AM on the K2SDR WebSDR and at the very least see a carrier on 6770.  Same goes with spinning the VFO around 6770 in SSB/CW mode and hearing the carrier "tone".  Like Chris says, it seems to disappear for a few days but that very well could be due to propagation.

An s8 signal at 1423z.

It's on 24/7 as near as I can tell.
