0605-0610 6976kHz barely audible above static; just enough for a QSL from an audio recording with snatches of a song recognised. First heard 0510utc, again, only enough signal to detect presence of music and no more. Location: East Coast New Zealand - Otago (500m from nearest power lines).Received on Lowe HF-150 with a 10.8m vertical with 4 X 10.8m elevated ground plane.
