SINPO = 35433 in Ukraine. Thanks for the transmission.

Nice decodes Alex! I have not had much luck this summer hearing VMW.....I hope that as we get closer to the Autumnal Equinox, the reception will greatly improve. Nice website you have BTW!

Thank you, Chris! These charts were received with some phase jumps, which I corrected manually. It seems like BOM has some synchronization fault in VMW transmissions currently. Initially I thought, that was a trouble with decoding on my side, but then found this post with explanation:

Weak, but audible in Kyiv. SINPO = 25432.
The signal got stronger since 0210 UTC.

Tonight we have the usual spitting utility on 6203 6204 but now another CW type utility on top of it.

What's this? Utility jamming out utility now? It sounds very useless to me.
And Laser moved away

The CW/FSK utility on 6204 kHz is RIT navy transmitter near Severomorsk (according to my previous observations). RIT is quite active these days, and the most probable reason is recent incident with russian submarine in Barents sea.

Fair signal in Ukraine now. SINPO is up to 34433! Mostly instrumental jazz music.
RX: Xhdata D-808, ANT: 80 mb dipole phased with 10 m external wire (to suppress local QRM).

Thanks for the show!

Does Iran have their equivalent of the FCC or ofcom?

Yes, Iranian equivalent of the FCC or Ofcom is the Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) of The I.R. of Iran:

https://www.cra.ir/en/enhome

Removing national and international radio frequency interferences is their immediate task.

Since LHH has moved to 6210 to avoid the spitting UTE on 6202-6203,
that spitting UTE has disappeared. Sounds to be only jamming...

Results of the TDoA analysis for this UTE point to the northern coast of Turkey:



However, network of several transmitters in different locations can be active there too. The protocol is unfamiliar for me. I suppose 3G ALE (ARCS, STANAG 4538) GM2100 Rohde & Schwarz HF Modem. But it would be great if somebody could identify it more exactly.

Talking of out of band, what is this 'noise' around 6220 currently?. You can hear it on the Twente SDR. Its like SSB and could be speech but is garbled. I can't make it out at all on USB/LSB?

This is spurious product from Iranian transmitter in Zahedan on 6155 kHz broadcasting VOIRI Arabic service. Now it is audible every evening here too.

Thanks for sharing!

You can find this nice interview here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frH6-VXY9KY ( Don't forget to enable the subtitles, unless you're speaking Dutch ofcourse :)

Dance Radio was heard in Ukraine once during Es propagation. I have a good audio recording with clear ID.

The definition of pirate is outdated and needs to be changed.

US CB radio operators and Part 15 radio station operators are two examples or stations that aren't licensed, are legal, and no one would call them "pirates."

If Ireland -- as a policy -- allows unlicensed broadcasters to operate in the country, without penalty or enforcement action, those stations are de facto legal.

What makes a pirate station a pirate station is that it's illegal.

Reflections Europe isn't a pirate.




The frequency ranges 6200...6525 kHz and 12230...13200 kHz are allocated for Maritime mobile services in Republic of Ireland (according to the Radio Frequency Plan for Ireland):

https://www.comreg.ie/publication-download/radio-frequency-plan-ireland

Taking into account 200 W of RE output power and the fact that these ranges are allocated for Maritime mobile services in other European countries too, I'm sure, any licenseless broadcasting on that frequencies can not be officially allowed in Ireland.

Citizen licenseless using of HF spectrum in civilized world is allowed only 1) on the frequencies specially allocated for license-free  operations (e.g. CB, ISM bands etc.) or 2) with very low output power (e.g. 100 mW for AM Part 15 stations). And Reflections Europe does not match the both criterions.



More about license exemptions in Ireland (https://www.comreg.ie/industry/radio-spectrum/licence-exemptions/list-of-licence-exemptions/):


List of Licence Exemptions

Exemptions from licensing are normally established when there is no requirement to manage the specific spectrum band and where the risk of harmful interference is negligible.
The Interface Requirements for Radio Services in Ireland are set out in 06/47R.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of licence exemptions.

Short Range Devices (SRD)

The vast majority of licence exempt equipment falls under this category.

SRDs include various low power devices such as inductive applications, alarms, model control, walkie talkies, wireless microphones and audio systems, radio LANS, Road Transport and Traffic Telematics (RTTT), Radio Frequency Identification systems (RFID) etc. For more information see 02/71R.

Operation of Wideband Data Transmission Systems (including WAS/RLANs) in the 5.8 GHz band is also subject to the Registration of operational base stations with ComReg.

Citizen’s Band (CB)

AM citizens’ band (CB) and PR 27 radio equipment.

Operational modes are AM (1W erp), FM (4W erp) and SSB (4W pep). CB is from 26.96-27.41MHz where forty 10 kHz channels are available.
