22 Meter Band HiFER Beacons / QRSS viewer for Mac?
« on: September 03, 2023, 1306 UTC »
I use Argo software for QRSS viewing on a PC, but my main radio software computer is an Apple computer.

Is software similar to Argo available for a Mac?

Utility / 29779.0 kHz RTTY
« on: December 10, 2022, 1438 UTC »
10 m propagation is favorable to EU as i type this.

The past few weeks I've been hearing an RTTY signal above the 10 m ham band on 29770.0 kHz, often apparently in an idle mode.

Who is it?

 As of 1856z, the signal is still present and S9 and just sent it's CW ID as CGA984. . 

Thanks for your report. After my last post, the signal briefly stopped and started a few times for about a minute and upon restart, it again provided the CW ID.

Utility / digital signal IDs as CGA984 20150 kHz
« on: October 30, 2022, 1348 UTC »
On 20150 kHz, a ~25 kHz wide digital signal which sounds like white noise identifies in CW about every 30 minutes as CGA984.
This signal is S9+10 dB in central Florida now at 1347 UTC.
I've been listening for about 45 minutes and during that duration, the signal stopped and started a few times with brief interludes of quiet and/or a CW ID which I can confirm is CGA984.

What is this?

Tufts University "Food Compass" shows Cheerios with a score of 95 (very healthy) and beef scoring at a horrid 33.
Higher score: healthy.
Lower score: bad for you so say the experts. Experts?

0935 UTC. Sunday Aug 21  dits about 0.2 seconds apart on these frequencies:  1019, 1311, 1603 kHz, 1895, 2187, 2478, 2769, 3069, 3353, 3644, 3936, 4227, 4519, (4811), 5102, 5394, 5686, (5976), 6368, (6562), (6854)...

These signals are 292 kHz apart. The above frequencies in parentheses are calculated frequencies where the dits should be but were not heard.

1019, 1311, and 1603 are in the AM broadcast band. 4811 kHz had a strong STANAG signal and the other frequencies not heard may be due to propagation.

I have heard two other similar ditters yesterday in the 8000 and 9000 kHz bands but did not think they were related to today's findings. I now believe they are of the same network.

Addendum:  As I look at the 4227 and 4519 kHz signals, I get the impression that every other dit is of a stronger transmitted power, alternating between high power and low power dits. This may be the case on other frequencies as well but it is subtle but most noticeable on the 4 MHz frequencies.

There's a weather fax signal S9 on 3853 kHz now in the 75 meter ham band. May be DDH3 Hamburg 0n 3855 kHz.   Massive signal.

HF Mystery Signals / Re: UNID 4649.5 USB 1530 UTC 26 FEB 2022
« on: February 27, 2022, 0255 UTC »
On 4648 kHz, there's a few closely spaced carriers at 0252 z heard via KiwiSDR in Poland. http://88.220.45.111:8073//
Every few minutes, one of the carries stops transmitting and CW is heard:
I copied CW about 10 wpm:
OKTR
OKPV
OKVA
OKDL
and "?" in high speed as if by human.
