I heard some of this. There was an OM on 6913u for a couple of hours on and off before having two way conversations with unheard respondents about this transmission. His signal was booming but I couldn't hear anything at all from the others.

I also copied the SecDef message, in CW, from NWVC on 4007 kHz but terrible copy maybe because I tried using the CW filter which I'm not in the habit of using.
Howsomever, I did get a solid copy earlier in the day from AGA5SC, Scott AFB, IL, on 7545 kHz in MFSK-16 mode.
Those are the only 2 instances of the message that I heard! They weren't just weak or QRMed - they were NOT there!!! Rotten propagation???

MDK2 - the other end of those QSOs were in the ham bands as part of the crossband tests. The .pdf sked that I have shows that NWVC was using 6913 kHz
to contact hams on 40 meters 1200 14may16 - 0400 15may16 UTC.

As an aside, I toured LST-325 a few years back when it was docked at Nashville; very interesting and I'm glad it has been preserved.
