Tough one to ID for me, so we'll go with the consensus on this one.

0225z Playing Macarena  
0227z really a rough copy for me ...
0235z Hear voice, not music ATTM but still very weak here.
0245z Carrier still present but little else for me ...

Hearing New York Radio giving aviation wx observations on 2.000 MHz USB ... since when did this become standard? Have never heard them before down this low ...

I should also note, since being active with 'operations' at the high end of the 160m band since about November of last year (and the same the year before, but commencing about June 2011) this is the first time I have seen any activity *just* above 2 MHz aside from some Mexican 'traffic' that straddled across 2 MHz around this last Christmas ...

Doh! I see where someone else has observed them as well:


And off-air at 0350z

Back on at 0400z.

NYRadio has definitely taken up residence at 2 MHz for these aviation wx broadcasts!

(About those 'ops' I was referring to above: I was running a 100W test beacon at 2.0 MHz LSB for a few months from November into January. I would have observed them had they been there at 2.0 MHz USB as a 'trace' would have been left in the bandscope of the receiver I was using.)

Freq is about 6924.9 kHz ... not terribly strong ...

Local WSPR xmtr is desensing 6925 kHz rcvr too when it comes on ....

Pretty good sounding signal, but sometimes buried in QRN at this locale ...

02:59z Freq closer to 6924.8 kHz now ...

Utility / 2.000 MHz, USB, digital data, in the TX maybe AR and LA area

Just noticed it tonight ... strong signals into DFW area ...

No idea what system or service these transmissions are associated with, but, the spectrum is normally marine.

Also, using Spectran, the following characteristics were noted:

Occupied BW: 650 Hz .. 2850 Hz  (Rcvr IF BW set for 3 kHz, Rcv freq = 2.000 MHz)

Startup (training sequence) carriers:

790 1090 1160 1460 1760 1840 2130 2430 2510 2810

OFDM data carriers every 60 Hz (yeah, I know: line rate) or so ...

Some grunge guitar licks coming thru the ether!

0217z ... something 'radio' but QRN is a killer here tonight ... now more guitar.

0225z  Pgm continues ...
0232z Pgm continues, QRN abating some, signal stronger at times too.

Hear something, unable to make out; lotsa QRN tonight!

There were two station in there, now one ... and sounds like recorded material, like a regular program of some sort ...

Program continues ... sounds like cartoonish character. Signal picking up some as night progresses.

Signal off briefly. Not strong enough to make much out with the QRN here ..

Caught about 20 mins of the net this morning at 8:30 AM CDT local time ...

Saw them on a spec an while busy with other activities.

Net still active as of 13:45 Z / 8:45 AM CDT

Net still active as of 13:57 Z / 8:57 AM CDT

Late posting - copied in the field Friday afternoon, the 8th

ID'd as "Radio Junk"

Freq 27.990 MHz, AM mode

Quite a mix of material - well worth the 'mind trip' tuning in.

Degen/Kaito 1103 portable used as receiver using built-in whip

Copied in N. Texas

Was surprised to hear a pirate that high up; was in search of the 'sweepers' that usually seem to inhabit the 6925 kHz area .. the sweepers have been quite active in the 27.5 - 27.95 area lately (propagation has been that good) ...

Some Spanish-language traffic mostly on the upper sideband part of things ...

2227z Song: 50's fave: "Makin' whoppe ..."

For those wanting to avoid the voice-QRM try 6939.800 kHz LSB ...

2234z Pgm continues, but, fades to inaudible at times with complete loss of carrier here in Tejas ...

2343z Copied ID while in car: "Radio Casablanca"

Saw him on the scope and tuned in ...

Freq closer to 6924.92 kHz (on the cal'd Icom)

This is LSB by the way.

2037z Peaking to S7 in Texas

0308 Just heard: "This is the Dawning of the age of Aquarius ... " before fade into noise ...

0310z Carrier still present (6924.8 or so), just too weak now to copy much audio ...

0248z Kind of a Blues tune playing now, with some mild guitar picking ...
