UNID (TIME REBROADCAST?) 6959 kHz 2358 09may18 UTC
« on: May 10, 2018, 0237 UTC »
Did anyone else notice this transmission? It was on and off
several times this evening. I hit the SDR record at 2358. The sig
was S9+20 here. It reminded me of a kind of screwed up WWV
sound but there was never any announcements. At 000200 UTC
the sound changed and then it was off at 000500 UTC and I
haven't heard anymore this evening but I do think I've heard it
on other days. Best sound seemed to be in AM mode...

I had this in my SDR recording, looks one of the digital UTEs that occasionally appears in the 43m band.

Thanks, Chris
I'm glad it wasn't just some local crud. Since a pic is worth 1K words,
here's a screenshot for Justin Case (anyone is curious). The shot is just as
the sound changed at 000200 UTC. With the volume turned up, I could hear
what sounded, to me, like 1 second time ticks.

I heard something similar ~a week ago but I was on the phone so
I just clicked mute. As I recall... I was looking at the 20 meter digital
area around 14100 kHz or so. The sig was gone by the time I got off the phone.
