UNID 6955 was 6950 AM 2218 UTC 14 MAR 2022
« on: March 14, 2022, 2219 UTC »
UNID 6950.0 kHz AM 22:18 UTC 14 MAR 2022

22:17 UTC - Station tuning up. Carrier only;
22:18 UTC - Broadcast begins. Loud and clear, 10 kHz wide;
22:28 UTC - Seeing 16 kHz of bandwidth which is a little wide with the fluctuating conditions. From a background noise perspective, 12 kHz is far more quieter.
22:42 UTC - I just checked the KiwiSDR in Weston-super-Mare, South West, UK and the signal is coming through, weak and barely readable but it is reaching out. There is also some interference only heard in Europe on this frequency;
22:45 UTC - Something going on with the power output of the station. There is a clicking noise and the power goes down then up again. It appears to be in lower power now as I have lost a considerable amount of signal and it is now getting very noisy in the fading;
22:48 UTC - Transmitter is cutting in and out.

My money is on Mix Radio International based on the quality of the transmitter and bandwidth.

An excellent signal, maybe the 6865 back on.  Played a Phil Collins song.  Thanks for the show.
The audio has a buzz on it between songs. 2254Z Huey Newton and News song.
2302Z Venus by Shocking Blue, Dutch band.
2325Z moved up 6955.  Playing Phil Collins.  Mix Radio International was doing the same last night.
0010Z Monkeys I'm a believer.
