HF Beacons / Windy - Letter "S" CW Beacon 4103 0830 utc 21 Dec 2020
« on: December 21, 2020, 0849 UTC »
I tried listening for the Windy beacon tonight, but could not hear it on 4103.  Instead I am hearing the letter "S" sent about every two minutes. Speed is about 12wpm.

FWIW, while I normally hear the Desert Whooper beacon in the early evening, I can't hear it tonight at midnight, although it has a good signal now on the KFS omni antenna.

My location is Santa Barbara, Calif., and I am listening on a 50' long wire antenna with an Icom 7200.

Spy Numbers / 6990 LSB 0845 UTC 3 Feb 2019 --Asian Numbers?
« on: February 03, 2019, 0852 UTC »
While listening on the Calif. KPH SDR, I'm hearing a robotic male voice reciting short Japanese-sounding words--very repetitive.  Off at 0850, but with weaker-signal "live" Asian language voices. 

Any idea of what I'm hearing?

Peskies / 6987 USB Unid Asian Language 0658 UTC 29 July 2018
« on: July 29, 2018, 0709 UTC »
I'm hearing an Asian language spoken by two or three men on 6987 USB on both my 50' long wire in Santa Barbara, Calif., and on the KFS SDR.  They do not sound like the Indonesian "chanters" who sometimes operate nearby.  Off at 0700 UTC.

Hi, their American accents were typical of what is called the "Oakie"/southwestern accent, frequently heard here in California.

Using the Token/Mojave SDR, I am hearing what sounds like several fishing boats on 6990 USB talking in American-accented English.  No locations given--references to adding oil to engines, and staying on the water "for another four hours".

On the Token/Mojave SDR, it is indeed on 7490.  Curiously, there is some weird reverb.  Every few minutes a word or syllable is echoed for several seconds. Nothing on 7470.

Edit:  I just checked your SDR, and there are two signals, 7470 and 7490. Both are YHWH.

ID and Translation Requests / UNID 4190 CW 0935 UTC 22 November 2017
« on: November 22, 2017, 0949 UTC »
Here in southern California I am hearing two somewhat weak stations working each other in CW, at about 25wpm on 4190.  I can't copy much at that speed, except that the text is a mixture of letters and numbers.  Any idea who I might be hearing on 4190 CW?

--Thanks from Leigh in Santa Barbara.

Fairly good signal on a Mojave desert (SoCalif.) SDR at 0100.  Thanks, Wolverine Radio.
