6996 USB has been used for Red Cross nets in the past, but I don't know why they would have an authenticated net.  The net procedure had a definite NATO flair to it, but they're clearly not professional operators.

The digital mode sounds like MIL-STD 188-110A which would make me lean toward this being CFARS (given the "Q" callsigns) or possibly MARS, but doesn't sound like any MARS net I've heard.

0155 - heard callsign "Red Dragon Romeo", so maybe CAP? "Red Dragon" is the callsign for the New Jersey wing of Civil Air Patrol.
0201 - operators speaking over each other and an ALE sounding

S8 but noisy conditions here
0055 The Clash
0057 sounds like The Ramones
0100 Radio Gaga into Rush - The Spirit of Radio
0106 Presidents of the United States of America? - Video Killed the Radio Star

22 Meter Band HiFER Beacons / WSPR reports for B4K 16 MAR 2024
« on: March 19, 2024, 1638 UTC »
Reports from an afternoon running a WSPR beacon on 22m from a hill overlooking Clarks Hill Lake (or Lake Strom Thurmond if you're from SC).

I figured I'd get spotted a few times if I left it running long enough, but I did NOT expect to get spotted by a Dutch station.  That was a pleasant surprise!

Utility / Capstone Net 6773 USB 0040 14 MAR 2024
« on: March 14, 2024, 0125 UTC »
0040 Capstone 95 calling Tri-Blade - “Tri-Blade, this is Capstone 95, are there any check-ins? Over.”

0041 Red Dragon (unintelligible) checked in

From what I gather, Capstone is the callsign for Civil Air Patrol's Northeast Region and Red Dragon is the callsign for the New Jersey Wing of CAP.

0041 Capstone 95 awaiting traffic

0045 Nothing further was heard.  Interestingly, the net did not formally close, and there was no instruction to "close down" or "secure stations" similar prowords.

0105 starting to get QRM from peskies
0125 I'll assume the net closed, and look for something else to listen to.

Weak but readable
0227 Theme from Goldfinger

0242 Signal has faded significantly. Can sometimes hear female vocals.

S8 signal strength with about 2.8 KHz bandwidth SSB.

0254 just caught the end of a bluesy rock song
0258 instrumental blues on electric guitar and piano
