HF Beacons / 4079khz TMP beacon
« on: January 29, 2012, 1704 UTC »
Checked on the 4079khz Temperature beacon this morning. Good signal and clear copy. 55-56 degree temp.

HFUnderground Beacon wiki states this is a 1W beacon out of SW Arizona.

Short recording from this morning, approx 1700Z, location is Phoenix, AZ metro area. Icom 718 with 40m dipole not up very high.

Hearing the 4096.25, 1 second dasher fairly well this morning. Good signal above the noise most of the time.

The HFUnderground Beacon Wiki states this is a 400mW out of Joshua Tree Natl. Park.

Short recording from this morning, approx 1600Z, location is Phoenix, AZ metro area. Icom 718 with 40m dipole not up very high.


Shortwave Pirate / UNID 6925.15 AM

Been listening since a little after 0400z. Pretty rough signal, down in the noise. I've also got a carrier just under 6928 which isn't making it any easier. 

Obvious music and dialog on USB, but almost nothing on AM. Atmosphere is pretty fickle though. Caught a nice sharp peak at 0417z with armchair listening on AM, however it lasted all of 30 seconds and didn't recognize the music at the time. Sounds like quite the eclectic show, wish I could hear it better.


Shortwave Pirate / Undercover Radio - 5109.75 AM ?
« on: November 12, 2011, 0432 UTC »
Identified as Undercover Radio shortly after 0400z and again at 0421z. Announced this is a "10 Watt Northwoods Broadcast".

Before and after it is atmospheric music with male "affirmation" monologue. I think he identified himself as Dr. Benway, not sure there was a noise peak over that.

0227z Ident

Shortwave Pirate / Radio True North 6925 AM 0330z

Great signal and audio tonight. Noise is minimal but fading is a little above average but it's still very listenable.

Good mix as well so far Linkin Park, Beach Boys (?), and Don Henley. Currently a country/trucker CB tune.


HF Beacons / Beacon at 6947u - 13 dits and 1 dah
« on: October 24, 2011, 0350 UTC »
Heard what sounds to be a beacon on 6947 (? 6947.1). It transmits 13 dits and 1 dah on a loop. I've been hearing this since about 0300z. Its audible at the top of the noise here at my location. Any idea where this one is located or additional details?

The few places I looked and searched I didn't seem to find any mention of this one. Is there a "definitive" reference for PHFER's? Google and the HFU Wiki seem to be my best resources at this point.


HF Beacons / 6961 pirate beacon

CW message 'tr' sent repeatedly. Quite a bit of drift but a stable signal, below average fade, audible just above the noise at S7/S8 here in Mesa, AZ.


Utility / KSM
« on: October 16, 2011, 1811 UTC »
Ran across KSM when I was scanning this morning. They are transmitting a repeating CW message on 12993khz.

Looks like they are participating in Pacificon. Pretty strong signal here in Arizona, but according to their site they are putting out 5kw from California so not hard to tune that one.


Utility / 500ms tick on 23856u
« on: October 16, 2011, 0029 UTC »
I was scanning the higher frequencies this afternoon seeing as how the sun has been so cooperative lately and I came across something on 23856 usb.

It's a tick every 500ms. The signal is stable and doesn't seem to alter from this pattern. It's very metronome like. I can't seem to find any record of anything being established on this frequency. Any idea's from anyone out there?

It seems to still be transmitting as I'm writing this. I've also posted a recording. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/45572545/500msBeat_23856u_15Oct2011.mp3

Just curious.
