Fishing Drift Net Beacons / Re: DNB 12th & 13th April 2019 logs
« on: April 22, 2019, 1650 UTC »
I've monitored your list over the past week, had a really good signal from WWVH on 2500kc. Couldn't hear a one of them from the US east coast. Only heard a couple weak ones of the 4xyz variety, probably floating in the Atlantic pond. Summer t-storms will make it tough until later in the Fall.

Thanks, somehow I missed that one.

Listening to HAARP on 8000 KHz ~ 0100 UTC & our friend HI makes an appearance on 7998 kHz.

HF Beacons / "051" CW 14100 KHz
« on: March 25, 2019, 1709 UTC »
Listening for the 14100 NCDFX beacons. The last few days someone comes on between 1600 & 1800 UTC sending "051" repeatedly in CW. Ham behaving badly, pirate beacon, secret message?

Today (March 25) it was in progress at 1655 & ended abruptly at 1710 UTC in mid-character.

I've been chasing them for years, ~125 in the log. Mostly around daybreak here on the east coast. Only logged a few new ones this winter, work schedule keeps getting in the way. Using a TS-520SE & 40m dipole so finding them is kind of like playing "whack-a-mole". Never tried to DF any so not sure where they come from.

MSK signal just appeared on 17.9kc at 0100 UTC. Assumed to be TACAMO.

Set up the Palomar VLF converter & TS-520SE to monitor 17.9kc. Lists call it "channel 1". Heard a fairly strong MSK signal show up from 0200 to 0214 UTC 08 March. Similar sounding to NAA, NAU, NRK, etc. Will see what else shows up while I build another Gyrator.

Utility / Any TACAMO Activity on VLF
« on: March 06, 2019, 2354 UTC »
I have a couple of VLF receivers (Gyrator II) listening for solar activity (27 & 40kc). Have the parts for another one. Has anyone ever heard any TACAMO activity in the 15-30kc range? I see frequencies in the various online lists. Is it still used?

WTEL 610kc. Used to be WIP when I lived in Delaware about 10 years ago.

HF Beacons / Re: 7 MHz Western USA Beacons
« on: March 04, 2019, 0107 UTC »
HI fading up to 559 around 0015 UTC Mar 04. Lots of QRM from OTHR. Faded out completely around 0030.

I hear it in WNC when the band is open. Sounds like 4-5 different stations based on signal strength. Usually when the 28 MHz W2 & W3 beacons are coming in. Also have one on 26995 (1 sec burst every ~9 sec) that runs 24/7.

Been hearing a lot of activity this week. In particular RAL65 (tanker "Kama") running traffic with RIT & RIW.

HI at 0045 UTC, up to 559 on peaks.

HF Mystery Signals / Re: UNID 8000kHz persistent signal
« on: January 11, 2019, 0340 UTC »
Strong here in western NC. Can even hear it on a single MPF102 regen & 25ft of wire.

Exo, thanks for the reports. Nice to know there are signals lurking about even though we may not hear them on the east coast. Enjoy chasing driftnets on 160m. Activity does seem to have dropped off. The FCC recently made them "legal" on 160 & they left. Maybe it's not as much fun annoying the hams or maybe, as you said, just migration to newer technology. Happy New Year.
