Hearing many calls to 41 and 43 division from North and South America this afternoon. I could hear one 41 division calling back. Must be a nice opening from the number of calls I'm hearing.

Sitting on 8992 over coffee and Twitter when all of a sudden it sounded like someone tuning up their OTHR.

Has happened three times since(always while I was away from the SDR of course)

AnyWUN heard this before? I'll try and get a recording.

Love the music!

0014 - ID and into Funk. Appears to have been on the air for a few minutes already. Poor reception in the northeast US. Very good in the northwest.
0014 - Funk and soul show tonight. Into a Peruvian funk record.
0038 - Serge Gainsbourg, "Danger". (Really digging this.)

S8 into Seattle, WA

When Clinton was in office, this was one of the frequencies used when the First Lady was in flight.

That's one I didn't know! History is cool.

If you search this forum or my YouTube channel for "MFSK Oddity" you will find discussions on this signal.  This is a signal I call the MFSK Oddity in my logs, it has been active for a couple years+ on a variety of frequencies.  It has several different widths, speeds, and formats.

Short story is, I am almost certain it is HFT, specifically a company called 10Band LLC with a couple of different experimental callsigns / licenses.

T!

I really do need to check out your YT channel before asking on the forum  :) I do enjoy your regular uploads. If no one said it lately you are a true treasure of the hobby.

SpeechBrain reported Chinese_Taiwan as a possibility, so potentially Taiwanese Mandarin, but admittedly the identification weighting did not return any real significant certainty. So a seriously huge YMMV here.

Chinese_Taiwan 0.027
English 0.027
Spanish 0.026
Chuvash 0.026
Tamil 0.025

Seems we can rule out English and Spanish. About the others, Chuvash favors Russia by population distribution. Tamil favors India, Sri Lanka, and Singapore.

Wow what a wonderfully weird time to be alive. Never heard of this app. Thanks for the help!

4k Wide. Can't seem to find something that looks like it on the wiki. Have a look and listen. Wonder if it's the HFT again.

Just as moi is about to post the signal disappears...It's back now...goin' to the bedroom for closer listening in...gone again-back again, weaker signal...must have a loose antenna connection...   :(

Your radio is programmed to know when you're close by. DX machines are the worst behaved.

Wasn't sure if it was a loose connection or just plain weird conditions.

UNID great sound and signal but CONDX were weird.

S7 - S9 deep fades to no copy.

Started with Welcome to a new day.
1:23 Weird song could not identify due to deep fades https://voca.ro/15QFUR2ednM3
1:27 Spoken word about god's creatures. Sounds like a theramine or snake flute :)
1:29 deep fade.
1:30 I think he turned his amplifier on and then blew a fuse or condx were really messed up. Signal popped up like a rocket for a few seconds and then died.
1:31 my cat demanded attention and well she is important. Thanks for the sounds!

EQSl accepted if you care to fess up to that playlist :)
