Other / WA3UKC 7200 LSB 27 May 2021 CQ With Recorded YL Voice
« on: May 27, 2021, 0330 UTC »
WA3UKC 7200 LSB 02:32 UTC 27 May 2021.

02:32 Calling CQ With YL Voice.
02:35 QSO with KB3DOR, now in male voice. It turned out he had been using the recorded voice of "Amanda" to send his CQ calls.

Reminded me of an article in Popular Electronics in the 1960s about a ham who had a neighbor YL doing his CQs for him in the hope of attracting DX stations. This was the first time I'd actually heard this done in practice!

MW Loggings / UnID 1670 kHz 05:40 UTC 14 May 2021
« on: May 14, 2021, 1842 UTC »
UnID 1670 kHz 05:40 UTC 14 May 2021. SINPO 34443.

Unidentified on 1670 playing 60s-80s pop music.

Ruling out CJEU, it was not in French and not children's music.
Ruling out WMGE, it was not News/Talk.
Ruling out WOZN, it was not Sports.

What is XECFR?

Good and steady signal in Northern Virginia from 05:40 to 05:55 but no discernible ID. Heavy interference from 05:55 wiped out MW except for local stations.
