UNID 6890 USB 2035 UTC 11 Oct 2018
« on: October 11, 2018, 2036 UTC »
Signed on right into music at 2035 UTC, right on the very edge of The Relay Station's wide AM signal on 6880 kHz AM.

2038 UTC - moving around in frequency for a second, then cranked open the audio
2039 UTC - off abruptly
2040 UTC - back on with "Magic Man" by Heart, clearly making adjustments to transmitted audio bandwidth while on the air
2048 UTC - now there's just a carrier on 6890.0 kHz, S9+10db on the Uniontown KiwiSDR
2049 UTC - must have dropped power, went from S9+10 to S5
2050 UTC - Carole King - It's Too Late
2052 UTC - rapidly changing frequency, like the op is slowly moving the VFO from side to side
2052 UTC - back on 6890.0 kHz
2054 UTC - (DON'T FEAR) THE REAPER (adjusting audio bandwidth)
2055 UTC - nice wide SSB audio at this point, 7 kHz or so
2057 UTC - now the lower side has audio (no carrier) so we'll call this 6890 kHz DSB
2058 UTC - back to regular USB (with very wide audio!) - very strong signal S8-S9+10 on peaks
