Just tuned in @ 0137 hearing "Rocket Man."
Lots of competition from SS ops on LSB.
At 0141 intermingling "Rocket Man" with "Major Tom."
LSB SS ops bleeding badly into USB making copy almost impossible to hear program details.  Simply can not get a decent lock on RFM's signal. >:( :(

I tuned in at 01:48 when Major Tom was just finishing up.
For some reason I am getting this on 6924kHz.
It's coming in at an S7 on the HDSDR meter.
