6925 Wideband FM - Man lecturing in Spanish 10:30 AM UTC
« on: November 23, 2012, 0243 UTC »
A real weird one...6925 is nothing but noise, but when I switched over to Wideband FM, I hear a guy lecturing in Spanish. His speech sounds like a religious lecture. At 10:39 there was a bit of piano music. Is this a station or some sort of bleedover from another station? Radio used was an Icom 706II using an indoor wire antenna.

Don't quote me, but that kind of sounds like WWCR on 6875 throwing spurs again.  I know some of their religious programming is in Spanish, and they've been known to splatter spurs around the higher end of 6mHz.

Yes, WWCR is infamous for splattering all over 43 meters: http://www.hfunderpants.com/?p=741

Five minutes ago while monitoring the frequency in WFM, I heard a distorted voice rattling off NATO alphanumerics. As with the other transmission, I could not hear it in SSB.

[Forgot to add: used same radio, Icom 706II.]

Right now it's back to the Spanish guy, tuned it down in AM mode and the people who blamed it on WWCR are dead on.

As for the military(?) guy, you have me.
