Music at 0452z. SIO 433 trending 422. Airspy HF+D and 31' vertical. DSB sync tuning. Decent carrier at times, but overall it is trending more towards a marginal copy at the moment.

Thanks for the broadcast! :)


When you receive your KiwiSDR 2 DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT, do any sort of Debian upgrade from the delivered Debian 11.8. Otherwise you may brick your Kiwi server (Debian should continue to run).

The Beagle guys have been at it again and have changed the way the SPI interface works. I need to understand the change and compensate for it in a later Kiwi release.

Thank you.

French-language talk into music at 1227z. Off air at 1230z. SINPO 55555. Peaking ~S9+10 via Airspy HF+D and 31' vertical. Armchair copy this morning.

Order #60 here. I still need to test the linear power supply that I ordered awhile back, plus figure out what I am going to do about an antenna.

The first round of pre-ordered KiwiSDR 2 units have started shipping.

2351z - "Welcome to the mental healthline...." into noise effects. SIO 433. Airspy HF+D and 148' loop-on-ground.
2323z - Off air

Ray, I suppose that might have been IR on your side of the big pond.

At my QTH the UNID station on 6935u is picking up considerably at 2319z.

Music at 2314z. OM at 2316z. SINPO 54243. Peaking over S9+10. Airspy HF+D and 31' vertical. USB ECSS tuning. Peskies on LSB.

Strong carrier, though strong to intense static crashing is making for a rough copy at the moment.

Thanks for the broadcast! :)

There is something under Radio Time Machine at 2250z. RTM has the stronger signal and modulation, while the other has a more prominent bass line. Airspy HF+D and 31' vertical.

RTM dropped down during the RTM ID at 2258z and again (RTM off air?) at 2301z, while the station with the strong bass was still there.

Looks like Ray might have it as well:


2303z - Music. Electronic with bass. SIO 433. Considerable to intense strong static crashing at the moment.
2304z - Modulation picked up. Good modulation with strong bass.
2320z - Ongoing music with bass.
2323z - Signal peaking S9+ at times.
2328z - CW noted. No decode, as I am horrid at Morse code.
2348z - Big signal drop. Down into the noise floor at times.
2351z - Another UNID noted. Switched to 148' LoG.
2355z - Signal picking back up somewhat.
0012z - SSTV then off air. Only managed a partial decode here. Anyone else? (thanks myteaquinn)

Thanks for the broadcast! :)

Instrumental music at 2245z. SINPO 43343. Airspy HF+D and 31' vertical. Strong static crashing at the moment.
2258z - QSL info. Station ID. Relayed by Cloudsplitter Radio.

Thanks for the broadcast! :)

Anyone else have the bass underneath it?

Carrier and occasional faint modulation at 2200z. SIO 322 trending 321. Airspy HF+D and 148' loop-on-ground.

Strong static crashing, but otherwise about "par for the course" for Indy Radio at my QTH in the late afternoon to early evening hours.

Thanks for the broadcast! :)

2115z - Music. SINPO 55233. Peaking S9+ via Airspy HD+D and 31' vertical. DSB sync tuning. Some fading at times. Frequent intense strong static crashing from storms in the Southeast US.
2121z - Station ID
2128z - SINPO 54233. Peskies noted on 6950u. Switched to LSB ECSS.
2142z - Peskies noted on the LSB side, plus some whistling from them a few minutes ago. Switched to USB ECSS.
2148z - Peskies now back on the USB side. Anyway. Clicked the LSB button.
2151z - "This now concludes Stern Radio...." and QSL info.
2154z - Peaking over S9+10 on the outro anthem. Strong modulation.
2156z - Off air

Static crashing from storms aside, I can report wide audio with good modulation.

2206z - Back on air. "Transmitter is smoking...." 6949.4 AM. Airspy HF+D and 148' loop-on-ground. LSB ECSS tuning.
2211z - Peskies seem to be gone. Back to DSB sync tuning.
2211z - Station ID
2255z - Off air?
2257z - Back on air. Music.

Thanks for the broadcast! :)

ID at 2100z into music. SIO 444 trending 433 via Airspy HF+D and 31' vertical. Some static crashing and fading, but generally a decent to good copy.

WRMI being in South Florida is close enough that is not always a great copy at my QTH, especially if a band goes long.
