radio marti recording with jamming

Cuba transmits noise on the same frequency as Radio Marti broadcasts. When I listen to 6030 khz where I am, I hear a sound like running water on top of the broadcast. Here's a recording of it. This Radio Marti broadcast came from a Greenville, NC transmitter.

Also see my previous article, is radio marti propaganda?

Interesting.
With Atlanta so close to Greenville I've never heard the jamming before.

I wonder: does a strong signal trump a weak one, or does the jammer just have a westward propagation pattern?

OK, I've since learned from Wikipedia that the strongest signal wins in FM, but not so in AM.
