Slowly unravelling the 6925 mixing product
« on: September 22, 2012, 1551 UTC »
I often notice some sort of image or mixing product on 6925 kHz AM on my SDR recordings, usually in the 0400-0900 time period.

Overnight, at 0657z, I got an ID of Scriptures for America. This appears to be carried by WWRB on 5745 khz from 8 PM to 7 AM CST according to http://sfawbn.com/.

At 0700 I heard "broadcasting from near the banks of the Upper Cumberland River... Tennessee, USA" does anyone know which US SWBC station uses this phrase? I am guessing either WWRB or WWCR. Probably the former.

I think I have heard WTWW Lebanon TN. use that phrase. But, I get all three of the TN SW shortwave stations twisted around/ too durned may\ny W's to remember, I guess

George McLintock (Sp?) is the principal of that operation, formerly of WWCR, KAIJ etc.

Thanks! In fact, I just checked my recordings from last night, and I could hear an ID that sounds like WTWW at 0800z. So that fits. Apparently they use 5755 kHz at this time.

I'm pretty sure the other station is  WWRB, as they carry the Scriptures for America program that I heard the other night.
