I and others in Michigan have been hearing "555" sent in Morse code repeatedly since at least 2300 (it is still going at 0145 but starting to fade a bit).

There is apparently some sort of 'carrier' at 6960 but the code is clearly at 6961.

Does anyone have a clue about this?

DXing *either* from:
MI -- South Central Lower Michigan with a 25 m randomwire and a LOT of local noise!
or
MI2 -- the tip of Michigan's Thumb with a 100 metre longwire and much quieter conditions.  Radios can be either an SPR-4 or IC-R71A or SDRplay

QSLs appreciated! radioguy73@gmail.com

I logged this somewhat earlier; it was noted at 7:45 local/0145 UTC. Signal strength was sometimes spotty, but mostly as strong as it is now.

S5 signal at 2120, but the CW is really easy to copy
2127 off?
