Part of the time I used battery power and part of the time AC. Battery was
quieter, but unfortuantely the computer noise was not changed. It has to be
coming from outside. I have taken the trouble to disconnect everything in
the house that could generate RF and no joy <sigh>.

FQY  UTC Station
3.250 11:33 R. Luz Y Vida San Luis, Honduras spanish music heterodyne with

I have no means of fixing that, and I have noted before that there is a
discrepancy.

Who is on 6.075 ?

Not sure... I'm picking up CHU here... perhaps a transmitter problem?

Not much of a mystery once I got the calculator out, getting a bit of a problem
here on the 200' wire with my local on 1260. The combination of the wire, 1260
and the multicoupler causing a bit of a problem.

6.075 12:27 utc Unknown russian station in russian with classical music and
very
strong signal; possibly
                   Belorussian R., Brest but listed at 6.070 in Passport = I
would not rule out a station in
                   russian far east, possibly Kamchatka

Deutsche Welle in Russian at that time ?

Not at all. DW is in german on 7075khz 24 hours a day. Always with
announcements in german language. Transmitted power is 500KW at daytime
and 250KW at nighttime in middle europe. Transmitter site is nearby
Cologne IIRC.

regards from Berlin/ Germany,

That doesn't sound right. 7075 is just outside the 41-meter band and I
don't see that listed in Passport. Typo?

According to Passport DW does seem to have 6075 covered 24 hrs in German
from somewhere.
