Station out of control
« on: March 16, 2012, 0015 UTC »
Logged on 6940 Khz, USB, 3-13-2012 with a great signal (S9+5) but obviously having a bad problem.
This sounds like out of control CW but then some recognizable characters toward the end of
the transmission.

For whats its worth!!  A recorded file link

Got around to downloading and listening to this. Sounded like someone goofing around on a straight key. At first I thought it might be the "wrong" side of an FSK Morse signal but then heard the "V V V AR AR" part.

So you got me on this one!

Interesting catch.

I've heard out of band ham signals in the 69xx kHz area. I also checked the database at http://www.spynumbers.com/ and see that M51 uses 6940 kHz.
