UNID 6850 AM 2338 UTC 26 NOV 2020

At 2338utc I hear a weak carrier, with moderately rapid fading, in ssb mode and barely hear audio at times. Does anybody else hear this or is it intermod? I'm within 15 miles of several Chicago mediumwave station transmitters all 50kw, collocated 670 and 780 using same tower, and 720khz.

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

I'm hearing the carrier (very loud) here in AZ, as well as what sounds like people talking underneath...

Edit: definitely AM and definitely music and chatter in there.

I heard the same station around 2330-35. It was definitely chinese and thought it might be Sound of Hope but there was too much interference from a peskie on 6850 USB.
