UNID 6955 AM 1930 UTC 25 May 2019
« on: May 25, 2019, 2033 UTC »
Weak carrier here for a little while, too weak for me to determine if it had any audio. Went off a few min later and around 1940 or so (after the station went off), someone (same station or another) was swishing the VFO across the frequency. This stuff isn't really worth mentioning, but I am in case someone is testing a new transmitter or antenna
Please QSL to: POB 109, BRS, PA 17214
