Hey, you got something!  :)

Anyone have some 2 or 4 GB DDR2 667 MHZ PC2 5300 ECC FB DIMMs they're looking to get rid of, preferably for cheap?  :)

These are the memory modules with attached metal heatsinks, often used in servers a decade or so ago.

Heard from 0106 on the SDR recording. Very weak at first, but better after a few minutes once it completely faded in.

Weather / Re: Lightning Strikes
« on: June 23, 2021, 1423 UTC »
We got an inch total of welcome rain here yesterday and the evening before. Some lightning, enough to unplug the antennas, but nothing nearby fortunately. Now several days of wonderful for late June weather with low humidity and temperatures in the low and mid 70s.

This very awesome eQSL arrived this morning for my reception of the pirate Archer Beacon on 6998.73 kHz. Received here in Westminster MD USA on my netSDR receiver and 900 ft horizontal sky loop antenna.

SDR recording catch. I saw the carrier appear on the waterfall, so checked the recording. Mixing in with the other stations, noted the Eagles at 0148 UTC.

Thanks for the new beacon / DX target!

Copied here at 0747 UTC on my overnight SDR recording, using a netSDR and 900 ft Sky Loop antenna.

Shortwave Pirate / BACON BEACON 6954.5 CW 0310 UTC 22 JUN 2021

SDR recording catch, heard for some time repeating this message. The beginning is BACON BEACON repeated, the end is a little tough to decipher as the symbols run together.

Shortwave Pirate / UNID 7000 LSB 0026 UTC 21 JUN 2021

SDR recording catch. This is probably on the edge between a pirate & a ham behaving badly.

0026 Signed on with "Wicked Game", SIO 555. More music, with breaks between songs.
0039 Much weaker now
0042 Off? I think so.
