Shortwave Pirate / Re: CDO 6920 USB 2305 UTC 19 JUN 2022
« on: June 19, 2022, 2328 UTC »
I think this is the same station that was
previously on 6925. At 2300+ a few seconds,
it went off on 6925 and I saw a sig pop up on
6920 - I "assume" the same station. They are playing
an early Alan Parsons Project album.

Skip, my sstv decodes are no better than your's
so I won't bother to post them. Still dunno
what the images are...

Here comes another sstv... Some guys looking
at a Tile Tools display and "Did he ask for your hep?"
Same as the last sstv you posted only better sig.

Operator, thanks for the APP mx!

0030 - "Eye in the sky" APP. FWIW: "Back in the day"
Ch19, WHNT, Huntsville, would run the instrumental
intro for "Eye in the sky" at the start of ads for their
wx radar. I'm really showing my age to discover
others reporting this a live recording by, I guess, a slight
name change to Alan Parsons Symphonic Project. Oh, well,
you had to be there back in the day... ;)

Operator, I really like the SSTV image, of the flag in the sky with
the trees and farmhouse that you sent at 0126 UTC. Do you
have a link to the original image?

Sittin' here enjoying the mx. Nice signal into Mx City. Thanks
for the program.

Sig is really way up and down with much QSB and QRN.
  When it's good, it's very good but when it drops, it goes totally away

HF Mystery Signals / Re: Clicky Carrier
« on: January 30, 2022, 0520 UTC »
This looks very much like my post here: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,79617.0.html on this same board.
I read, and looked at, the blog site you posted and I think the sigs are very similar. Recently I have noticed that "my" sig has been
up just below 7,000 kHz. I will have to check out the 14,378 kHz sig.

2041 - "Californication" (???). Really booming in here at S9+24!
            Good sounding sig, plenty of good, clean audio.

Thanks for the show.

This is a a repost of what I posted in Longwave Loggings:
 

1906 Fessenden Transmissions WI2XLQ, 486 kHz, 0440, 01jan22 UTC
on: January 01, 2022, 0522 UTC


I've been listening to this station for a while using Chris' KiwiSDR with the 500' beverage pointed toward Europe.
However reception is very good, mostly 59, in spite of much QRN and  the station being kinda off the back of the antenna.
0440 - 0515 Tuned in and listened to a loop consisting of: "O Holy Night" (on violin, I assume), a YL ID and OM description
            of transmission, and short reading from the Bible.

Thanks for this transmission OM and also a big thanks to Chris for providing the KiwiSDR.

Sorry Dood, a little after the fact, but the Heavy Metal Rally was 08jan22 (per Electric Radio #389, Jan / Feb 2022)

6 was open most of this afternoon, at least for FT8, until ~0415 UTC. I tried 50.127 mHz USB but no replies;
ditto for 50.400 AM, also didn't hear any CW when checking that part of the band; sigh... :-[

Checked 144 & 432 SSB, CW, and even FT8 but haven't heard anything but that is probably due
to timing as I would expect at least some local activity. Haven't listened on 222.100 USB yet, but
not gonna hold my breath there..

Utility / KPH RTTY & SITOR 12585.5 kHz 1900 08jan22 UTC
« on: January 09, 2022, 2155 UTC »
Sked for Saturday RTTY / SITOR transmissions at https://www.radiomarine.org/mrhs-operations
is off by 1 hour for UTC. Transmission starts at 1100 PST = 1900 UTC, not 1800 UTC. I suspect
the web page was posted during DST and not updated; looks like their operations run on
local Pacific time, not UTC.

Sig was noisy but I copied ~70% for 3 hours of marine nx and wx for Mates, Masters, and Pilots
on RTTY. At 2200 UTC that was repeated using SITOR. I could not decode the SITOR using fldigi
(OpMode / Navtext / SITORB) but did a quick search and found that YaND (Yet another Navtext Decoder),
which I have installed, would decode the SITOR so switched to that and again got ~70% good
decodes. By ~0000 UTC, 12585.5 was fading out but 6324.5 kHz was beginning to fade in and
I copied that for a while. One of the nx stories was an advisory that piracy, armed robbery, and
kidnapping for ransom, of ships is on the increase in and near the Gulf of Guinea including Cameroon,
Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Sao Tome and Principe, and Gabon.

This is a weekly event and a good opportunity to try out RTTY and SITOR decoders.
