SDR recording catch. Repeated RMWW IDs, much like the logging from the other day: http://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,28049.0.html
Very strong, solid SIO 555. Yes, it was LSB not USB.
Off at 0333.

caught on SDR recording. killer signal here near DC. s8 w/booming audio. very minor fades, minor atmospheric noise. audio pushed nicely enough to pierce the conditions.
sdr with horizontal loop antenna, 20 feet up, 250 feet all around. wellbroke loop for amdx and tropdx, very very lucky reception.

On the overnight SDR Recording
6955 kHz LSB, Signal widely variable, S3 to S8 into the Chicago area...

0331 - Is that some sort of digital mode I
         am hearing, or just some distorted audio ?
0332 - Op Id's his self as "Dr. Tornado - 6955, we'll see you later..."

Hope to hear more of this elusive station.

Those guys always had a great signal, especially considering they were using a Grenade at 10 watts.
