Utility / Beacon 'AT' on 315khz @ 0000utc
« on: December 31, 2013, 0011 UTC »
Not sure about this one, might be in my back yard <?> but I am hearing it with a fairly good signal using my vertical antenna...

'AT' CW beacon on 315khz 0000utc

Point is that receiving anything on LW at this QTH is a wonder considering the high noise level

I guess they saw my last two posts and Jose grabbed the 'revolution #9 pogo stick' and hopped over to the transmitter and fix the message loop...

Or perhaps not...  it WAS fun while it lasted tho ;-)

Here's a good one from our friends in Cuba:

HM01 11530khz 1718utc 12-30-2013

This is fun!  The voice call up is given while the data is still on...  Out of Sync to say the least...  But it does give some insight to how their system is set up...  Sounds kind of wild really...

Very slow CW fair to good signal here in Ohio



Voice of Russia (VOR), the former Radio Moscow during the USSR era, will cease shortwave broadcasts as of January 1, 2014. In addition, effective December 9 as a result of a decree signed earlier this month by Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Voice of Russia radio company officially ceased to exist and merged with several other state-run news agencies as part of Rossia Segodnya, a Russia-based international news service.

From the 1950s through the 1980s, the station, as Radio Moscow, was a virtual beacon for short-wave listeners (SWLs), many of whom gravitated into Amateur Radio. Voice of Russia currently broadcasts to 160 countries in 38 languages for 151 hours per day on short and medium waves, on FM, via satellite, and via the Internet. Earlier this year shortwave transmissions were cut to 26 hours a day in all languages, down from more than 50 hours a day in 2012.

VOR, which claims to be the first radio station to broadcast internationally, will continue to broadcast online and via three medium-wave transmitters. In 2003 VOR was among the first major international radio broadcasters to launch daily broadcasts to Europe in Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM). Putinís decree also abolished the State Fund of Television and Radio Programs, placing it under control of All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company.

Just to let you folks know, if you didn't already, 10 meters is open to Europe and the signals are really really good...  Almost as good as the last solar max...
