S9+10 with the Northern Utah KiwiSDR. UNID language talk, sounds like a call in program. Maybe an African language? Frequency is exactly 6148 kHz so I think someone may have entered the wrong frequency at the transmitter. Sounds maybe like Voice of America?

S9 with the Northern Utah KiwiSDR.

S9+20 with the Northern Utah KiwiSDR.

0433 UTC-Hell Yeah (Live At Madison Square Garden August 2008) by Neil Diamond
0435 UTC-“Well, what did you think, did you like that tune?”
0436 UTC-Conversation between multiple stations about the song, other stations said they liked it
0437 UTC-One station gave a call sign, all stations said good night to each other and went QRT

Does this qualify as Hams Behaving Badly? Playing music on the ham bands is against the rules but it wasn’t intended to be disruptive as Hams Behaving Badly usual are.

S9+10 with the Northern Utah KiwiSDR.

Very drifty carrier around 9673.25 kHz. Strong S7 with the Brasilia, Brazil KiwiSDR. Usual religious programming in Portuguese. I find it a little strange they would get their transmitter back onto their assigned frequency of 9665 kHz again then make a very large frequency change.

S7 with Northwest Ireland KiwiSDR.  Probably king shortwave.

1536 UTC-All For Leyna by Billy Joel

Exact frequency is 6274.94 kHz. S7 with Northwest Ireland KiwiSDR. QRM from idiots on 6295 kHz.

Has anyone else noticed the problems with the All India Radio External Service? I often tune to them with the Vadodra India KiwiSDR or other KiwiSDR’s and always notice problems. All frequencies are distorted, broadcasts are off frequency, songs are frequently cut short or started part way through, and sign on and sign off times are seemingly completely random. Sometimes they fix the distortion but usually not for long. The transmitter on 11560 kHz produces spurs close to to the intended frequency. I have not found anything online about this other than this website https://www.hindustantimes.com/india-news/i-b-ministry-and-mea-at-odds-over-all-india-radio-external-service/story-k8CDvm9gmYSJ4gDzuYrHiK_amp.html which mentions that the transmitters are due to be replaced. AIR can be heard in North America with a weak signal but I still need to try and see if I can get it from my QTH. I am currently setting up a new antenna that performs better than my previous ones so I will see how it goes. I want to know if anyone else has noticed this or has any other information about it. It confuses me that this has been going on for a while and no one seems to have noticed.

0432 UTC-Of course, as soon as I write this I hear non distorted music on 9950 kHz for the first time  ???
0434 UTC-9950 kHz went off mid song. 11560 kHz was on earlier but also disappeared while I wasn’t listening.
0435 UTC-11560 kHz is back on. Audio not distorted but usual transmitter spurs present.
0440 UTC-9950 kHz back on at frequency check.
0500 UTC-Slightly distorted signal on 15185 kHz with lots of splatter

S9+10 with W3HFU KiwiSDR. 4 kHz wide audio.

0001 UTC-Wait Till The Sun Shines Nellie (Remastered) by Harry Tally
