WEDG the Wedge (Presumed) 1610 1120 UTC 24 Nov

No ID yet, but I've heard them in 2010 and 2011 here, between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I assume it is them. Playing Christmas music. S5 signal that jumped to S9 at 1640z. In past years they ran pretty much 24/7, so folks may want to give them a try once it gets dark.

Hearing it again (no ID but I think it is them) at 1605z. About an S5 signal.

I hear what sounds like an OM in EE with a long monologue going @1615 under a ton of QRM/N.
