6.925 USB  A little bit above the noise, and up-tuned slightly - more like 6.925.250 or so.  Trying to tune to de-flange the sound, but I think that might be the way it's supposed to sound.

02:05 (appx) - on after WEAK cleared the frequency, can't quite make out the music
02:20 - apparently off again - never caught an ID
02:23 - back again - guitars
02:28 - speech, but I'm not able to make it out.  Sounds like a sermon, rant, or the like.  Sounds like it's zeroing out at around 6.925.330 or so now
Someone's angry - not going to take this any longer
02:35 - computerized voice leading into music
02:54 - speech again - something about Jack Shit, no shit, deep shit, no shit Sherlock, etc.  Seems to be around 6.925.170 now
02:56 - heavy electric guitars
03:05 - off, perhaps?

Okay, the program content is so unusual, that my mind is having a hard time deciphering it ...

It doesn't help that the high-pitched kids voices sound so weird - when the transmitter is 220 Hz (or a little more) high in frequency and it's difficult to 'tune them in' ...

There may also be a 2nd signal in there ...  yes, something else ... maybe someone else has a better copy ...

9:21 PM CDT / 2:23z end of program apparently ...

Yeah - I never did figure out what it was.  Frequency was off just enough - and the music abstract enough - that by the time I was able to figure out that it _WAS_ de-tuned, it was already well into the transmission. 

I guess that's a good reason to at least start a show (and pepper it within the playlist) with a bit of voice, or at least music that everyone knows, so that they can tune it in properly and know that they've done so.  Wailing guitars and obscure jam sets are difficult to tune to, largely because you aren't sure just what they're supposed to sound like when you get them tuned properly.

Sounds like a DSB signal, audible on both LSB/USB, shifting/drifting between 6925-6925.5.  Preacher-style religious/political rant.  S5-S7 over S3-S5 static crashes.

And drifting ... a wildly preaching preacher is speaking now and the station is 370 Hz high and ... still drifting.

Signal now picking up 9:33 PM / 2:33z

S5 on peaks. So are the lightning crashes unfortunately.

Freq at +380 Hz now

Yeah, I could faintly hear the carrier ... used it to find the zero-beat b/c listening to the program content sure wasn't getting the job done!

Now showing +370 high on Icom 756 Series radio ...

Now here comes some music!

Okay - the station in there is 190 Hz high ... had to cheat and use narrow CW filter to find where the weak carrier was located.

There may be a 2nd station as well and as propagation moves around one or the other gets stronger.

Guitar coming through good right now at 9:53 PM / 2:53z

BTW the audio came by way of email Thanks WEAK     Yup, I guess we missed the meeting where frequencies were allocated for free radio use.  Or the rule that states "Don't diddle the VFO during the show!" -----    http://www.mediafire.com/?me2emczzmny
