Catching music and chat just above the noise floor here. S4-5. Anybody hearing it better? ???
Still hearing bits of music popping up out of the noise at still a S4-5 at 0008. Wish it was better. :-\
Thanks for the ID and letting us know Radio After Dark! New catch for me. ;D

0003Z I've got it about 6944.5...fair strength but audio is very distorted to me...west coast, maybe peaking to S3 but pretty much unintelligible.
0018Z has drifted down to about 6944.3...still very distorted audio

At 0005 can detect a carrier but no audio on ~6945v USB.  Conditions here have degraded quickly.
Just a boy with his radio and some wire.
Location: Omaha, Nebraska
QSLs always appreciated.

Some very weak music, but just at the noise level.

we narrowed it down to a loop of rf down the audio cable back into the transmitter should be good to go in the future
