Somebody's playing music here; I've got a weak signal fading in and out with what sounds like rock.

I have them in AM, not USB. Copy is poor throughout western north america due to QRN.
Also their carrier frequency seems to continuously drift downward. Currently at 6919.12 at 0534 UTC.
All the sudden there was a "manual" frequency correction at the TX site and they are now on 6920.08 at 0536 UTC.

Just somebody with a radio, a computer and a pair of headphones...

Late SDR recording catch. Yes, this was AM I had them from 0442-0552 UTC. I noticed a few of the manual frequency corrections KaySeeks noted. Super weak here, not much more than a carrier.
