UNID 5030>6960 kHz AM 1910 UTC 16 March 2019
« on: March 16, 2019, 1913 UTC »
Strong station on the west coast playing continuous music with no ID heard. No commercial broadcasters scheduled on that frequency at this time. Possible pirate? QSY to 6960 kHz at 2000 UTC.

Nothing local, but an SIO 222 signal on a KiwiSDR in BC.

Pretty decent signal out here in Western Canada at 1940 ut..... saw all the guys on my KIWI tuned to 5030 so had to see what was going on!   Signal strength roughly equal to WWV on 5 megs.  Best on a SW facing DKAZ loop.  Lively fiddle music at 1944.

off at 1956

1946 Using the same Kiwi SDR as Chris, hearing blues music faintly. Nothing local here in Denver, although anything between 3800 and 5150 kHz has to be quite strong to rise above the odd local noise I have blanketing that part of the band.
1953 carrier still present but not really getting audio any more. (edit, it's coming back now)
1957 OFF (might have gone QRT at 1956)

I tuned to the VE6JY SDR about 30 min ago (BTW, thanks to VE6JY). VG signal there the whole time with some '70s rock & what I guess is light Irish folk music. Strong audio. Off at about 1956 UTC
