Sounds like more movie audio. I noticed just a weak carrier earlier, but now S7.

Definitely something there - sounds like a movie; "Calling Antarctica Traffic Control."  Signal just came up big time, about s-7 into NE Ohio.

Here's a bit of the audio:   https://soundcloud.com/desmoface/unid-station-8055-am-25-aug-2016-1320-z

I didn't get to hear this, but the "Calling Antarctica Traffic Control" would have been from 'Alien'.

Here's another audio clip of this station.  I'm with you guys, this does sound like movie audio.
Today the copy was much better and I was able to use the AM mode.

For what it is worth here's a clip:
