0106- Carrier but not enough modulation here..

0114- Likely not a station- it is strong enough now that I would copy any modulation.

I have the carrier as well, but there doesn't appear to be any modulation.  Carrier strength anywhere from S9 to S9+10 on the east coast of the USA at 0111 UTC
U.S. East Coast, various HF/VHF/UHF radios/scanners/receivers

 Lots of over pole fading? Gwad knows what it is? :(
 Sounds like something evil from China? That rapid fading is POLAR
 Still strong with some lighter fades in SE USA. It can't be URO because even meg stations can't get over the pond now.
 So, I may someday go to LOWES and build a crude DF loop.
  I wouldn't rule out ASIA unless its still readable in a few hours, then it obviously much closer.
Lots of CIA crap etc in the band and I am told numbers stations, dumb as they are, often come from CIA in Maryland.
I did catch one about 4 years ago. It was only 1 pm and the carrier blew out my RF section.
