S7 and decent copy @ 2209.  A weaker het on 6925.

2218 - CW, I copied some of it.  I guess the ID is WPH75
'WPH75 DEC 7TH 1941 DEC 7TH 2016 WPH75 6926KC QRT WPH75 6926 KC QRT'

Heard this station when it was mixing with Radio Free Whatever on 6925.2 kHz AM (I think it was RFW) before they moved up to 6929 kHz after WPH75 went QRT.  Seemed like there was possibly a third station in there as well but that could have been SSB voice traffic from 6925 kHz LSB or 6930 kHz LSB mixing in with the various carriers. FDR's speech mixed with music actually sounded kind of cool.

I agree with refmo that the CW ID heard was "WPH75"
