S7 in noisy conditions here in Northern Virginia.

0010 - Talking Heads, Wild, Wild Life
0019 - "That's all folks!"

I feel good!  (I knew that I would now.)  Sounds great, S8 on my R8 in Northern Virginia.

Just realized the DJ sounds to be Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.  Great show!

Nice S7 signal on my R8 in Northern Virginia.  🎵 Louie-Louie 🎵

Very readable S6-S7 on my R8 in Northern Virginia.  (Yes, Zeeky, you are getting out of your backyard!)

S6 to S7 into Northern Virginia.  Clear enough Shazam had no trouble ID-ing Shades by Iggy Pop.

Solid S7, minimal fading into Northern Virginia.  Great show!

Big signal at my HDR (Hardware Defined Radio), https://www.chilton.com/R8/receiver.html, Virginia, USA.

Oops.  I'd got so used to the U.S. broadcasters running nothing but preachers and conspiracy mongers I didn't recognize it.

...but there's no lfunderground.com  :)

I hear these (digital?) chirps 24 hours, about the same strength, down below the AM broadcast band and wonder if anyone here knows what they might be.  Recording was made with the R8 tuned to 0.282 MHz, USB:


Best 73s,


Update:  Well whatever it is, if it's calling someone/-thing then I think the calls are coming from inside the house.. My Sony ICF-SW7600 tunes that low and I should be able to locate the chirp-er walking around with it.  Nothing I've unplugged so far stops it though. Still looking...
