WWL 8th harmonic 6969.977 AM 2200 UTC 26 Sep 2021
« on: September 26, 2021, 2215 UTC »
Very weak but have checked it on two radio's and two different antennas.

Found while testing a new loop antenna on weak signals. 

Mostly talk alternating between a male and female.  Maybe a harmonic.  Did note some music just before 2200 UTC

Seems to be getting a bit stronger.

Now music and maybe an ID but too week to make out. 2215 UTC
Ten-Tec RX-340, AOR 7030+, JRC NRD 515, Icom 7800, Icom 7300, Cubic, Anritsu,Inverted L tuned for 160M, 2 ele. 40M @65' and Cheap Chinese loop when camping!

TNX to Radio Nuts above for the I.D. Tuned in at 23:14 while going back and forth from Outhouse and Black Flag Radio. Hearing this New Orleans AM'er harmonic was a surprise. Mostly talk, Audio not strong or up with carrier. SIO 333 slowly reducing to a 222 by 23:25

The 3rd harmonic of WWL 870 would be 2610 kHz, so it is not that.

The 8th harmonic of WWL 870 would be 6960 kHz, but you are reporting a frequency almost 10 kHz away, so probably not that.

I imagine that you receive a very strong signal from WWL on the fundamental considering your location.  Does your loop have an amplifier? Could this be overload?  A mixing product?

This is most likely the FOX NEWS CHANNEL relay mixing with a radio spur and harmonic of the station which he mentioned.
