CHU 6660 kHz
« on: November 09, 2015, 1753 UTC »
I'm curious if anyone else can pick up the second harmonic of CHU's 3330 kHz transmission on 6660. I am presently hearing it (1750z), although it is quite weak, as usual.  Using USB mode helps.
You might have to try at various times of the day to hear it. 
I get best reception during late morning to early afternoon.

I have it weak @ 2340 on 6660.  I can't hear any announcements, but I hear the time pips.

Old thread but this is happening again today. CHU harmonic on 6660 KHz, best in USB, some QRM from a close-in data mode.

Initially at 2340z I heard nothing.

After some listening I started to hear just the time pips every once in a while. 2345-2350z

At 2351z the time pips are more regular and stronger now.

23:55 UTC - Still nothing for me. I even tried some WebSDRs in and around the Pittsburgh area with no luck.
