Not sure what this is booming into a DC-based SDR right now....coming in clear, a bit of periodic static.  Big band/jazz music, on 1700 khz.  I can't find any station on that frequency....perhaps a pirate? Here's a recording of what I heard.

I regularly get WEUP on 1700 - any chance it was them playing Gospel music?

If it was big band and no id it's some guy feeding his Zenith/Philco/etc console with a lpam rig.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.

There's only two DC based SDRs that I'm aware of and one of them always has something playing on 1700. Did you see the tag under it? It says the guys callsign and that it's a part 15 station.
