Voice Of America 6925.8 AM 1302 UTC 4 March 2018
« on: March 04, 2018, 1303 UTC »
1258 UTC Open carrier drifted down from 6926.1 to 6925.8
1302 UTC Hearing some audio now, but tough copy with the noise
1306 UTC OM talking...maybe a speech?
1308 UTC Signal jumped up a bit....OM with speech and crowd applause. Maybe Trump?
(Carrier with S7 peaks and level with the local RFI....mostly in the noise though)
1314 UTC Music possibly...maybe not
1320 UTC OM talk....
Signal is totally buried in the noise now....
