Title: Pirates 250.000-270
Post by: rec/cat7610 on December 12, 2021, 2326 UTC
I cannot beleive how many Pirates are on in
this frequency range, all in Portuguese I
assume Brazil?
I cpy the most around 263 area but elsewhere
also, I wonder why just Brazil??

Yes, it can be a mess up there on those old FLTSAT UHF transponders. It used to worst prior to the 2009 swoop. Some days it is like listening to CB radio.

I am generally parked on 260.7250 and 262.2250 and 263.5750 are currently busy with traffic as I am writing this. Bellow are some of the transponders that I have listen to on a regular basis. All frequencies are 12 kHz wide FM. The transponders are actually wider than 12 kHz but the Brazilian Pirates do not have "real" SATCOM radios.

253.8500
254.1500
255.5500
257.0500
257.5500
258.3500
260.3750
260.4750
262.3250
262.4250
262.8450
263.5750
263.6750
263.8000
263.9250

Now, since these pirates generally do not have radios which will tune properly to these UHF transponder, you will often find them off frequency. For example, the official transponder is 262.2250 but you will find the pirates on 262.2300. For the most part, the UHF transponders do not really care what frequency you use for uplink because most of them are 25 kHz wide. Even if you uplink 5 kHz off frequency this will be translated 5 kHz off frequency on the downlink.

I generally use an ICOM IC-R8500 with a Dorne & Margolin DM C120 antenna. If I feel like "rocking the boat" I will then connect my LST-5 or URC-111.

I have heard them using my T2FD (Barker & Williamson) HF antenna but the true signal path is Right Hand Circular Polarized.

Wow. I can't believe these comms are still on-going. Nearly 20 years ago a family member confided how he was using his "converted" ham radio to maintain a regular sked with his Brazilian relatives. He stated that there were numerous Brazilians living in the U.S. that used this method of communications on a regular basis with those living in the Amazon Rainforest. He also stated this practice came about due to the high cost of international phone calls.

And those satellite are well past their expected life-span and still kicking strong. Makes for good background noise when there is nothing else to listen to --- Olla.

Thanks for that list SIGINT. Trying to pinpoint the signals in this mess is a pain. Sounds just like if everyone on the Citizens Band suddenly forgot how to use their radios.  ;D
Think I need another dozen notch filters.

Those SATCOM channels are generally designed for wide-band FM but the pirates only use approx 5 kHz of bandwidth beause they are using modified regular commercial radios. This is also why, for most times, they are not on the proper assigned uplink transponder frequency. The signal is also Right Hand Circular Polarized but people have managed to listen using a dipole or other type of antenna.

Very strong signal activity for Portuguese speakers at 263.679 MHz. 15:42 UTC
 I swear I can hear the sound of diesel truck engines in the background on some of them. Transponder passband limits look to be from roughly 263.660 to 263.690

Good strength pirate signals on 262.219 MHz  Transponder passband limits look to be from roughly 262.210 to 262.240

Good strength pirate signal on 262.129 MHz, competing with a bursty digital signal.  Transponder passband limits look to be from roughly 262.110 to 262.140

Good strength pirate signal on 258.655 MHz. Transponder passband limits look to be from roughly 258.635 to 258.665

Somewhat quiet so far today, 13 December 2022

01:40 UTC - 263.5800 NFM Brazilian pirates. Sounds like they are mobile. You can hear that "alternator" noise wining up and down during the transmissions.

Your guess is as good as mine and a reasonable assumption as to which satellite is being received. Since moving location approx 10 months ago I currently do not have a communications mast or tower therefore in true military fashion, my Dorne & Margoline is sitting on the floor pointing out the patio door over the horizon. I am well within the footprint of both UFO 10 and UFO 8. I am located in N.E. Canada (Grid: FN08) and the antenna is pointing at 190 deg (magnetic).

Where are you getting your TLEs for FLTSATCOM 2 and FLTSATCOM 7 (USA 20)? They do not appear to be included in current TLE files (unless they now go by some strange catalogue name).

Of the remaining FLTSATCOM series, FLTSATCOM 2 is the only one with a footprint into my current location.
