2230 UTC - Signal is S7 in WNY, sounds like a 1940's FDR speech about the WW2 Quebec Conference,  with backround music.

I think there are two stations here. The FDR speech is on 6920.07, and Madness is on 6920.00

Yes, I was on 6920usb at 2234utc on the Barrington Hills IL sdr listening to Not Clever Name Radio when I heard FDR speech, as of 2240 NCNR seems to have stopped and now I only hear FDR,
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

This sounds like the same program I logged on 31 Jan 2022 at 2206 utc. And what sounded like two stations were on that time too.
2244 - this station just gave I’d of WFDR Keep On Truckin

Caught this too from about 2228 utc on. FDR speaking in Quebec it sounded like. I wasn't sure if this was a part of the other show or not. The waterfall did show an AM and USB signal mixed together on 6920. Oh, and I did catch the "WFDR, Keep on truckin'" s/off.

Well, thanks, Frank! Hope to hear you again.
