2054 UTC: Rock music heard via Burke, Virginia. Distorted right at 6930, with a fair level of noise floor around it.

I have some traces of music under a killer white noise ute at 2053 UTC tune in >:(
2105 UTC Music almost at the level of the ute noise now...electronica music? Also hearing an OM over the music?
I can just make out "Comfortably Numb"-Pink Floyd under the noise ute at 2111 UTC

Yes, killer noise here on 6930 !
Any frequency around is much better !
The propagation was very good in Europe, not many stations on that sunday evening, and now it's the long skip. 

2120 still the WORST frequency between 6800 and 7000 !
