Amateur Radio / 80m DX Propagation 0537 UTC 29 Nov 2021
« on: November 29, 2021, 0541 UTC »
Pretty good DX opening tonight. Been listening to ops from Europe including France, Serbia, etc. on 3793LSB for a few minutes now. Even caught a mobile op.

Amateur Radio / 2021 Winter Sporadic E Propagation
« on: November 13, 2021, 1609 UTC »
Just a quick FYI. The winter session of Sporadic E propagation is approaching. Usually around mid to late December into early January. It is rarely up to summer Es levels, but some of ya'll 10m and 6m ops might find DX opportunities. Consider keeping a radio slightly squelched and parked on 28400, 50125, etc. during the upcoming weeks.

10/11 meters / 11m Activity 22 Oct 2021
« on: October 30, 2021, 1257 UTC »
A few of the powerful Caribbean stations on 27025 AM at 1257z.



Starting to hear signs of activity on 27555 USB.



I just worked Scotland on 27490 USB with a 59 report. I would say conditions are hopefully improving.



Now signs of activity on 27385 USB.

I am not sure it he was talking to me or another FL op, or both, but Ireland is rolling into 38L.

Might have heard Germany. 38L is becoming its usual DX jumble.



Worked England on 27405 LSB.

Non-QRM music on 11m for a change. Around S4. SINPO 25444. Probably groundwave.

« on: October 22, 2021, 1817 UTC »
The 11m waterfall was nearly a blank slate here earlier today.

Activity is picking up a little at 1812z, particularly above the CB band. Mostly Spanish language ops so far, with some mentions of Puerto Rico and Venezuela.

Some CW and/or beacons present on 10m.



27530 USB - 1842z - 347LA125 from Curacao in Lesser Antilles
27555 USB - 1823z - Op from Havana Cuba
27385 LSB - 1846z - Op from Portugal

Shortwave Broadcast / KCBS North Korea 9665 AM 0851 UTC 5 Oct 2021
« on: October 05, 2021, 0851 UTC »
Music with what sounds like an overlapping tone. I thought maybe two signals or interference as first, but I kind of doubt Radio Voz Missionaria from SA is strong enough to put dent in KCBS, so I will just log SIO 222 via the 31' vertical and proceed with the band scan.

Shortwave Broadcast / Radio Guinea 9650 AM 0831 UTC 5 Oct 2021
« on: October 05, 2021, 0833 UTC »
Music. SINPO 25333 trending 15222 via the 31' vertical. Noise, fading, and some static crashing. Quite fatiguing on my ears.

News and talk format. SINPO 25322 trending 15222 via the 31' vertical. Noise and fades. It is listenable, but it would be quite fatiguing to me.

Talk interview format. Interviewee talking about a shark. SINPO 55434 via the 31' vertical. Some fades. Easy copy.

« on: October 05, 2021, 0744 UTC »
Talk format in Portuguese language. SINPO 45333 trending 35323. Some static crashing. Occasional strong fading. Still, plenty enough copyable due to good signal strength.

« on: October 05, 2021, 0739 UTC »
News and talk format. SINPO 25232 trending 15222 via the 31' vertical. Copyable, but enough static crashing to be annoying to my ears.

Shortwave Broadcast / CRFX Toronto 6070 AM 0710 UTC 5 Oct 2021
« on: October 05, 2021, 0721 UTC »
News talk format. ID at 0715z. SINPO 33433 via the 31' vertical. RC232 is on frequency as well, though right now it is underneath CRFX.

CRFX is reportedly 1KW into a non-directional antenna.

Religious programming. It is a back and forth with CRFX on the same frequency, though CRFX is "winning" as I type this reply. SINPO 22432 via the 31' vertical.

Shortwave Broadcast / Radio Congo 6115 AM 0656 UTC 5 Oct 2021
« on: October 05, 2021, 0706 UTC »
Music. Maybe ~S1 under the moderate static crashing, but listenable. SINPO 25342 trending 15332 via the 31' vertical.

The transmitter is reportedly 1KW into a non-directional antenna, making a decent trip IMO across both the Atlantic Ocean and the equator to my QTH.
