Charleston R. Int'l 5140 AM 1708 UTC 21 Jun 2018

1708 typical music from the 1920's, noisy but fading up well.
Still no idea about the TX location, and the music selection is mainly from GB-US-Germany, not often from elsewhere.
1714 sounds of the gangs war (Chicago?), more music.
1718 ID, then short talking about S.S. Titanic, music

1852 OK KaySeeks, no audio, carrier only (or quite undermodulated??)
1922 audio is back, ID and music again

I first tuned into them around 1810 UTC and there was music on the station. SINPO 34433.
1840 UTC - no modulation.
1916 UTC - checked back here now and the signal is good and there is modulation! SINPO 44444 with 1930s music and vocals auf Deutsch. Then into the often heard "Go ahead, London" bridge and into some sort of mix of music of the period.
1943 UTC - Lili Marlene auf Deutsch
2045 UTC - Noting OTH Radar (?) QRM from 5128-5138 KHz at the moment.
2148 UTC - OTHR gone and signal is good. SINPO 55445. S9 +10 on peaks.

2155 UTC - Announcing a // frequency of 7335 KHz for North Africa and the Mediterranean but there is another signal there now.

Just somebody with a radio, a computer and a pair of headphones...
