5125 AM, UnId, 0236, 12/18/16.  Weak carrier with occasional breakthrough of music including rock and what seemed to be an opera singer at one point.  Suddenly stronger at 0242.

Yes it's strange, this is not a WBCQ Freq. 5130 is.  ???

First noticed here at 0225.
Signal similar to WBCQ on 5130, about S7 plus or minus QSB.
The two signals were so close together that the audio from the relayer was interfering with WBCQ, causing some odd artifacts.
Thanks for the interesting relay.

I moved it here, as 5125 isn't WBCQ and probably is a pirate relay since it seems to have different signal strengths for some (I have neither 5125 nor 5130 here). Plus, why would WBCQ be on 5130 & 5125 (or any legal broadcaster relaying 5130 on 5125)?
