Harmony 5780 AM 0222 UTC 28 Jan 2019
« on: January 28, 2019, 0239 UTC »
 Tune in @ 0222 to very weak signal here playing big band/30's-40's movie music. High static levels and severe fade outs along with distorted audio made for difficult listening. Announcement by deep voiced OM heard but couldn't get anything. Music continuing past 0240. Did hear Sinatra's " Come fly with me" .

2230 UTC  SINPO 22322- - this is an exceptionally good reception
In my QTH this channel is always occupied by another station which drown out and unimagins
R. Harmony's identification.
There are short moments of distinguishing the characteristic music for them.
For this reason, it does not report their transmission.

Kris, which station occupies 5780kHz at your location? Is it a broadcast station or a utility?
