Nothing out here. Tuned in via mixlr app.
2114 maybe some hint of signal at the noise floor? Sticking with mixlr for now. Soviet anthem just ending and DJ Dick Weed is on the mic.
2227 signal def. above the noise now, about SIO 222. Got it best at 6954.99 USB
2248 improved to SIO 333
2252 may move to 4185... currently playing the instrumental music that precedes the USSR anthem
2254 QRT on 6955

21:17 UTC - A good S9 to +10 signal. Audio sounding slightly distorted;
21:23 UTC - Station ID;
21:30 UTC - Mic audio sounds good DJ DW;
21:32 UTC - Shout-out to HFU listeners;
21:45 UTC - I think that you are also slightly drifting off frequency. I am currently seeing 6954.980 kHz and also switched the IF filter to 3.8 kHz wide and it is better;
21:55 UTC - Now this song is way over-modulated and distorted. Sorry, I do not know the piece but it is the one after the Amazon rant;
22:08 UTC - Starting to get some fading;
22:30 UTC - Trying the https://mixlr.com/radio-free-whatever link. Music segment also sounds over driven over the stream;
22:37 UTC - Gone into a deep fade out. I would take your donuts but I doubt you want to send the gift card to Canada - LOL.

22:50 UTC - Frequency change to: 4185.0 kHz USB.

Nice signal with a S9+ signal. Can't tell if the audio is over driven or if it is my receiver.
