HF Beacons / 6940.6 KHZ
« on: July 18, 2018, 0054 UTC »
0045 UTC hearing a very faint, irregular "dit" in CW mode around 6940.6. I'm not really familiar with pirate beacons, but I know there is a fair amount of pirate SSB activity in this area.

Equipment / Limited space antennas
« on: April 27, 2017, 1321 UTC »
I am curious with those of you who live in apartments or HOA restricted communities do for antennas. I am currently in such a position and while I do not have a station setup yet I am looking into my options for equipment. I was considering a magnetic loop antenna, or getting a multi band dipole in the attic. Since my station would be used for transmitting in the ham bands I would like something that could do double duty. Although I am not opposed to having a separate antenna just for listening.

I also have an old VLF receiver at a relatives house I am hoping to get my hands back on soon. Are there any decent antenna options other than a random length of wire?

General Radio Discussion / New user, great forum

Having seen a few references to this site I finally decided to check it out. I tend to like things that are obscure, or unusual, and there appears to be much of that still in the shortwave spectrum.

I got involved in SW listening as a kid, then got a ham licence. It lapsed many years ago, but I've been bitten by the radio bug again. Hoping to get a station set up soon, as I sold my old Kenwood HF rig and my 2m rig was stolen in high school . My family is holding on to some vintage gear for me I hope to get back in my hands. I remember being fascinated by numbers stations, seemingly indecipherable digital signals, and the Russian woodpeckers. (I was amused when a band I'm a fan of used a numbers station sample in a song. I knew immediately what it was when I heard it, while everyone else scratched their heads.) I've been doing some reading on HF beacons and am really curious. I had thought the shortwave spectrum was pretty much dead, with the big broadcasters going off the air. Hopefully I was wrong.
