UNID (Relay?) 6920 kHz AM 2115 UTC 1 Jan 2017
« on: January 01, 2017, 2122 UTC »
Appears to be a live relay of Electric Circus up on 6925 kHz USB.  Heavy fading and somewhat tinny audio leads me to believe its somebody using a remote receiver as their audio source.  

2117 UTC, heard a conversation between an OM and a YL underneath the Electric Circus relay.  Not sure if that's another station or simply lower-level audio on this transmitter's side.
2122 UTC - S3-S4 level carrier, with weak modulation
2125 UTC - YL heard talking underneath music, difficult to dig what is being said out of the (louder) music.
2129 UTC - Music (from Electric Circus on 6925 kHz USB) dropped off for a second, that or deep fade (or both).
2131 UTC - Signal now down to more of a S3 steady with some fades.  
2133 UTC - Sultry-sounding YL chatter now in the background...
2146 UTC - Relaying SSTV being sent by Electric Circus on 6925 kHz USB...

Hearing the same here, about S4.
SSTV from Electric Circus, as relayed....

Started hearing 2 OM talking before the SSTV ended and continueing after the SSTV was over.
Sounds like random audio from someone's radio as they are tuning around.
2155 - off
