The title should be 8.992 MHz.
Do you have PBTs on your receiver? I usually work their crap audio with PBTs and whatever filter fits their crap audio

Your echo is most likely you receiving multiple worldwide stations on same freq but slight time delay due to distances between broadcast stations.

311 is likely 311.0 AM. Some EAMs get passed there by E6s , especially in the Bay Area.
