Skip is rolling in mainly from CA here to WA.  Had a 10m contact with CA tonight as well.

Those spatter boxes, tho....

Sermon on Christian misintepretation of Scripture.

Starting to see some openings on 10 and 11.   Beacons coming in on 10, and on 11 I heard a QSO from CA to ID with traffic picking up across the 11m band.

2 OM having a conversation.  Not sure about the language.  To my untrained American-centric ear it sounds close to Spanish, but could be Portuguese.

At 0745 UTC it seems like the conversation is over; haven't heard anything for about a minute now.

Sermon on the evils of Catholicism and Non-Yahwehan Christianity in general.  Satanism in the military, satanic symbols of the New World Order.

Usually can't catch it out here in the Pacific Northwest.  Radio Habana Cuba @ 6000Khz is stomping on it a bit, but adjusting the filter cleaned it up enough to get in.

Equipment / 11 meter rig
« on: April 30, 2017, 2229 UTC »
OK, I have to admit I have a soft spot for 11m (CB).   Any recommendations for an 11m base rig?  I don't need a modifiable 10m with 400 watts inside, just really clean signal out of the box and SSB.  I.e., no splatterboxes.

If I accidentally forget to flip the antenna switch and it goes through my linear amp, well, mistakes happen.

The Galaxy DX-2547 looks interesting, though I see some complaints about quality control.  https://www.amazon.com/Galaxy-DX-2547-Station-Counter-Talkback/dp/B002LMIQQU

I'm not against a mobile that I run off a power supply, though.  Having a "base" radio is mainly for aesthetics.

Any recommendations?

Edit:  Also looking at the Bearcat 980  https://www.amazon.com/Uniden-BEARCAT-Sideband-WeatherBand-980SSB/dp/B007B5ZAES

I'm guessing it's Unknown Name Radio Network, but someone with reception will have to check it out.  Not readable from my QTH

Digits in Spanish read by YL, data burst, repeat.

Sounds exactly like the last time I heard numbers, and in my thread MDK2 said it was HM01

Strange, almost like a time signal.  19 dits then a dah.  Repeat.  Faster than 1/second though.

SINPO 25422 on my IC-R75

FWIW, Taiwan SSB meteorological broadcasting is theoretically scheduled now on this frequency.

*I should note this was off my RTL-SDR so hopefully the frequency is correct.  I have a multicoupler and AFERDI on order so I can use the RTL-SDR as a waterfall for the R-75 and the AFERDI directly.  :)

08:57 UTC now, and has been playing music since I tuned in.  I don't recognize any of the songs; they're in (I think) Spanish; some of them have a Latin dance beat.  Haven't heard an ID or anything except music so far.

Hmm, I'm not even sure it's a pirate, but I don't know of any scheduled broadcasts in this band at this time, and there's been no ID.  If I hear one, I'll update the post.

Edit:  09:34 UTC  faded out; still didn't get an ID

Guy interrupting QSOs with a soundboard.  Vulgarity, racist comments, etc. on loops.
