Report #081 12/09/11

In the background of an AM shortwave broadcast station on 12160 kHz I could hear a weak high-speed auto Morse transmission of 5 figure groups. Using a second receiver on a different antenna, I carefully tuned the 12 MHz signal to see if I could get better reception of the numbers signal but no luck.
