I have (12:14 UTC) a very very weak carrier on 21460 kHz, no modulation, except some "idea" of music. Sorry.

just now (23-Oct-2015 // 10.30z) I could copy that beacon (from JO62SK, Berlin Region/Germany) with a good signal RST 569 (on my DX-88 outdoor vertical) again - my location JO41WM. On my back-up 10m longwire antenna (3m AGL) it is even RST 579. Anotjher nice lunch break ;-) Hope I can get any QSL ;-)

Just now,
"low power test transmission" by
Focus International, he asked for RRs
to focus at live dot cu dot uk,
SINPO 44444 in Germany

73, Tom

still on (04:20z), their zero beat is a bit
lower on about 6967.9 kHz, maybe that helps
to ID the carrier? if...


just listen to an unid FR station on 6915 AM,
it's very weak here in Germany (0145 local)
anns after each song ("golden oldie"/rock greatest-style).
OM (robot voice) with "xxxx Radio International",
maybe "Premier Radio International" from Ireland?

Sorry too weak to get more

Yes, it was Premier, I just got an eQSL from the Jimmy
via premierradio at yahoo dot ie - www.premierradio.ie
" I was only testing to see what conditions were like......not good.
Hopefully we will be on over the weekend if conditions improve."
But at least good enough for me, thanks for a new QSL ;-)

HF Beacons / 6550 kHz "Greek beacon PRV"
« on: February 12, 2014, 0601 UTC »
The Greek "free radio" CW beacon PRV from Preveza city
operated by the licensed HAM "SW6HMU" is now active on 6550 kHz
(just now: 12-Feb-2014 06:00 UTC with RST 519 in Germany) .

Before it was on 6851/6852 kHz (from time to time, no 24/7 operation).

HF Beacons / Re: 8000 kHz CW "QRP"-morse beacon
« on: February 12, 2014, 0549 UTC »
That beacon is still active, just checked at 06:45 German local time (05:45 UTC)
on 7999,9x kHz with RST 529 (12-Feb-2014).

Reports from other EU monitors let me suggest an European
location, maybe South (East) Europe.

HF Beacons / 8000 kHz CW "QRP"-morse beacon
« on: February 04, 2014, 0409 UTC »

there is a morse beacon just now on 8000 kHz
transmitting "QRP" in slower morse CW.
First spotted yesterday on [ndblist] yahoogroups.

Was very weak here in Germany around 22 UTC (3-Feb) with RST 219
only "visible" by ARGO screen shot.
just now (03:45 UTC) much stronger peaking RST 559
on my DX-88 vertical.

A new pirate beacon? Any QSL-info? Would be nice
to QSL such a beacon...hi

73, Tom

Believe this is R.Ronin

Yes, got their IDs at 01:57 & 02.03h, weak with fading (S1-3) here in Germany.

73, Tom

Became much better now (02:15h) with constant S3-4,
but with some "voice" interference (Brazil?)

Weak S3 but readable here in Germany with my 15m longwire
(short OM name-only-ID at 01.53h),
sadly seems that he doesn't QSL :-(

(A wav/mp3 record or SSTV print-out aren't a real QSL, at least for
a traditional DXer in the 40s like me...hi)

73, Tom

He usually sends an SSTV qsl at the end of his broadcast...be ready for it  ;)

Yes, but a real personalized "2-way QSL" is much more 'different' ;-)

At 02.00z strong QRM by Russian/CIS aeronautical airport-to-airport net (e.g. "AMBA", Tashkent etc.) with short radio checks.

Hi, he is great here in Germany, about S5 with some local statics.
Nice 1930s music ;-)

I only wish he would do QSL ... (?)

73, Tom

Just now BSR Baltic Sea Radio on 6925 kHz in LSB
with Japanese (!) and German anns,
strong signal in germany.

73, Tom

Note: Sadly he went s/off 21.03z after the German ID

HF Beacons / Re: PRV On Air
« on: September 10, 2013, 2055 UTC »
PRV was (is?) is active again on 6849.8 kHz today at 2000z.

Anyone ever got a QSL via his yahoo address?

73, Tom - DL8AAM


just now (10-Sept-2013 / 0400z) the final ann from "Pirate Radio Boston"
on 6925 USB by "Charly xxxx" with good SINPO 3-4 here in Germany.
s/off 0406z

Any QSL available? ;-)

I have these Portuguese language chats on 6925 kHz LSB here too, prob. Brazil, looks not
like real utility, more like some illegal operations by "chat pirates".
Have logged them at least two times over the last weeks, seems to be their meeting point.

Just now 0053z with S3 here in Germany,

73, Tom
