Shortwave Broadcast / WINB? 9265 AM 1724 UTC 27 NOV 2021
« on: November 27, 2021, 1729 UTC »
Very weak, mostly just a carrier on the WF with occasional bits of audio.  Tried doing some searches to see if i could eyeball the antenna and, well....it's interesting if I'm looking at the right thing.  The FCC database wasn't much help....anyone know the story here?

EDIT:  that's the feedline...it goes to a rhombic in a nearby field

General Radio Discussion / WMLK photos

Was on a road trip in PA and (moderately) surprised to see WMLK’s antenna still standing….

Just purchased a small ultrasonic humidifier for my office since the desert-like humidity levels play havoc with my sinuses.  I was pleasantly surprised that the wall briquette and the device did not hash up my radios....at least the bits of HF, VHF, and UHF I'm currently monitoring. 

That is all!

HF Mystery Signals / Re: UNID 6970 2019 UTC 19 NOV 2021--see waterfall

Intriguing….were you receiving directly or via a remote SDR?  I’d think they’d want to have as directional a signal as possible, so it raises the question why either of us would pick up if they’re targeting Europe. I guess I might catch some of the NJ signal, and you the CA-ish signal….

I was wondering about data compression but the only thing they need to transmit is a time stamp, the ticker symbol, and the price info…?

guitar music...way down in the static. SIO 222 if that...

~0115 UTC: 

should point out i grabbed that off Chris's KiwiSDR, not mine...was too weak for me to copy

1351 UTC: maybe REM?  Weak signal at my location.  maybe SIO 243  <-weak signal, some fading, no real interference, easily intelligible. 
1404 UTC: station ID as WREM; signal getting stronger.  S-meter actually twitching from time to time.

Have it loud and clear here in MD as well.  Looking back at the various logs this thing has been chugging along for awhile....

Software / WSPR?
« on: June 03, 2021, 0230 UTC »
Has anyone messed around w/WSPR on their SDRs?  Thought it might be a useful tool for monitoring real world propagation at my QTH.

Would be neat if Multimode added it…(nudges Chris… :))

S6 in OBX on background of lightning crashes and some damn hash noise that wasn’t here an hour ago…..

Listening on the afedri and a LOG thrown on some sand dunes….

you guys listen close
that was about a couple watts

Do you have it right at 6950? Seems more like 6950.015 or so...i just calibrated against WWV.

that's what it said on the transmitter +

Maths isn't my strong suit.   ;D
