Someone testing 6925 and 6950 around 2200 UTC
« on: April 26, 2012, 2209 UTC »
I've been watching a carrier pop up on 6925 and 6950 (closer to 6950.7) every so often for the last few minutes. Perhaps someone testing or tuning up?

Whoever you are - at 2209 UTC on 6950 you are about S5 here.

Nothing here on 6925, weak one on 6950.

Actually have been watching 6970.  Been seeing what looks like a weak AM carrier there, and got just a scrap of song audio around 2205z.  Doesn't seem to be the PP crowd that hangs there.

I've been bothered by 6970 for ages now. It's a spur from WWCR. Very annoying.

Thanks Chris; never saw that here before.  Now I'll stop wasting my time on it...
