Russian Lady spy numbers station S06S on 6930 kHz USB on 12 March 2019 at 0715 UTC, using a netSDR receiver and 670 ft sky loop antenna.

This turned up on my overnight 43m pirate SDR recording.

Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.

No vertical antenna. I had one about 25 years ago, and was never impressed with it.

I did finally install my 1,000 ft LoG antenna (OK it is really about 950 ft) this morning.  Not amazing, but it picks up some MW stations better than the sky loop. A killer signal from WWVB on 60 kHz, also  8)
