Just came up out of the noise enough to hear Steve Miller, "Fly Like An Eagle"

You're doing better than I am, I can't understand a word they're saying between the fading and the static.

Caught the end of a sign-on with the DJ saying something about being from Europe, then into pop music in what sounded like Russian.

Hard to tell what's being played due to deep fading.

Saw a suspicious signal on the SDR waterfall and jumped on it in time to catch the last half of a greyscale test pattern with no ID.


Fired up again @1934, big S9+20 signal, biggest signal in the band by far, but still just a grey bar test pattern with no ID.  (There was a presumed CW ID at the end, but I don't speak CW and I didn't record it.)

10/11 meters / Re: SSTV 27700 nov.1
« on: November 02, 2014, 1525 UTC »
10m and 11m are the hottest today I've seen them in a long time.  I was monitoring WSPR on 10 earlier and not a minute went by that I didn't log an overseas station, and usually quite a few of them.  Unfortunately, there are multiple 11m SSTV stations transmitting simultaneously so it all looks like crap.  I think I'm going back to 20 for SSTV, even though it's not pirates there should still be some DX.

As far as I know, there are no longwave broadcast stations on this side of the Atlantic.  I suspect you're overloading the receiver and hearing images of shortwave stations.

SSTV active on 14228 USB.  Their web page at http://www.qrz.com/db/W4G says 14230, but I suspect they moved down because Saturdays are the IVCA Net day on 230 -- although I haven't seen much of the net today.  They say they're going to be on 7171 also, but I haven't looked down there yet.
