UNID 6925 USB 1700 UTC 03/04/2016
« on: March 04, 2016, 1726 UTC »
Underneath the very strong unidentified AM signal on 6925.0 kHz there's another station on the USB.  6925 USB.  Is much clearer when the carrier (and audio) from the signal on 6925 AM disappear for a moment or two.

Sounds like Italian two-way traffic (maybe) at 1747 UTC.

I can't hear anything on 6925 USB anymore (that, or the UNID on 6925 AM is completely drowning 6925 USB out).  Signal is S9+30 for the station on 6925 AM so I'd believe either possibility.

music now at s7, really wide signal (6+ khz) playing dance music, no accounting for taste i guess :)
great audio if a little brittle and tinny, slight fades, no interference which is crazy because 30 minutes ago it seemed very chaotic here.
maybe its a peskie piping music via handheld microphone. i dunno. another carrier in the background now at +35 minutes after.
now a cw id at +36, missed it.
