Solid S9 on a SDR in Virginia.  Someone testing for Halloween ?

OK 1309 UTC and it's not audible anywhere else.  I think it's a local AM product on 6930 being picked up by the SDR, or it's a product of the SDR itself.

Scratch one log !

Sounds like that SDR needs a high pass filter or something. This is indeed a MW station located in Virginia.
