    Is anyone else hearing a broadcaster (Station YHWH) in the 80 M band (3.845 Mhz using AM)? It is currently 18 August 2013 at about 04:15 GMT and this station has been there for over an hour now. Is this station in some way legitimate, or are they just bootlegging in the middle of our bands?

    Assuming this station does not belong there, anyone have suggestions on the best way to deal with this?

    I can barely hear them.... no matter which antenna I try. But I can hear them in there...

    What's the content? Religious?

    Take your choice, YHWH is also a streaming audio (Internet) religious station.

    Triangulate. NOTE any or all spoken, not "canned program" format.
    Voice ID Technology is so good today, they don't have to say much to get a pattern lock.

    Maybe it is a spurious emission (harmonic) from a station down in the AM broadcast band?

    The top end of 75 meter is a shared allocation, if I remember correctly.

    AM broadcast is allowed there in other IARU regions.

    In Region I, Europe and Africa, the frequencies between 3800 KHz and 4000 kHz are not amateur radio bands and broadcasting is allowed.

    In Region III, Australia, Asia, and Oceania, the frequencies between 3900 kHz and 4000 kHz are not amateur radio bands and broadcasting is allowed.

    Only in Region II, North and South America, is the entire 3500 kHz to 4000 kHz segment allocated to amateur radio.

    We used to hear a religeous broadcaster (in English no less) on a German SW BC station around 39 something, on 75M, all the time in Eastern states. Perfectly legal.
