Which of 9395 & 7730 are better for me depends on year. Last night, 9395 was better to start with and then 7730 was better.

In either case, had great signal.

And yes, always a good show. I try to plan my Tues evenings around it.

Dunno bout you guys but I'm fixin to blast that cuck-driven soy powered prius behind my turbo diesel suv with a cloud of diesel smoke.... all while eating a double whopper with fries.

I have a turbo diesel SUV as well (sans diesel smoke, which I kinda miss as I love the smell of diesel).

Is the diesel slow? Oh no no... not at all. At a speed of <redacted to protect the guilty>, its smooooeeother than silk. Faster than most squares on the highway as it is, and its not even trying. These things get to 140+ mph on the Autobahn.

Guy I know got a new Toyota Highlander hybrid. Seems decent enough and I asked about mileage. My larger & heavier TDI gets better mileage.

Who's more "green?" Kermit the Frog. However, my name ain't Kermit and I'm not a frog. I'm a human and I eat meat & plants of my own free will.

Just to spite Algore & this "peak meat," I'm going to make sure I get some steak grilling this weekend on the BBQ (BBQ causes problems in certain circles as well). With mushrooms and leeks. Leeks are green.


P.S. Always follow the money.

Miserable. T-storms rolled through this morning.

9395 // 7730 // 5950

9395 kHz:
0000Z 45544 S9 Jazz From the Left. An hour of jazz exploring the intersection of cool and west coast jazz.
0035Z 45444 S9

7730 kHz:
0035Z 55545 S9+20

5950 kHz:
0035Z 25342 S7 Fairly noisy




Yaesu FT-847 with Bonito Boni-Whip antenna.

There's also a remarkable number of people claiming to be 21 that are concentrated in & around bars that also don't have birth certificates.

Since you used a splitter, was there any isolation between the two SDRs?

Definitely do night tests with the splitter. One when things are quiet (i.e. no stupid t-storms) and even another when the stupid t-storms are around. See how they both react to that interference.

Not too bad of a night.

2315Z 35433 S5 OM talking about religious topics. No idea who this is, but signal is S5-S7 with occasional deep fades into the noise.
2350Z 15431 Signal dropped way down into the noise. Only hear bits & pieces now.


I think Skipmuck is correct, this is the 2nd harmonic of WWRB 5050 kHz.

Appears the writer used Wikipedia for inspiration for that sentence:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shortwave_radio
" Thus shortwave radio can be used for very long distance communication, in contrast to radio waves of higher frequency which travel in straight lines..."

Changed a couple of words and voila, a mess of a sentence. A great example of professional reporting today.


What's going on there should be a sign to SW broadcasters to not be so hasty in destroying their transmitters & antennas.
