Hearing it on the West Coast, loud and proud.

I thought Madera only hung around on 14.313 or .275....all of the people around Victor Echo 7 Kilo Foxtrot Mike need to get a better hobby, like PSK31 or working on their CW fist.

Unless this was somebody playing tapes.

Nothing heard here, but Xenu, volcanos, and nuclear weapons are all part of the scientology thing, right?

Google "OT III"; the Xenu story is part of Scientology training materials.

Hubbard claimed that people would die if they read it and were not "prepared"; I've read it more than once.

So what did "it" talk about, Hornet0123?

The Xenu story?

More anti-Scientology material?

Curious to hear.

UNID 6925khz USB 3:18 ut  1-17-13  S6 - S8

 I saw the signal on the waterfall and tuned in at times are approximate:
~ 3:18 ut Unknown Op playing music through the microphone...
Very Poor "tin can" audio w/ slight reverberation from room they were transmitting from.
~ 3:20 ut briefly un keyed the mic then back on w/ Op singing along with tune , then
~ 3:20:30 ut Off the air

Thought I was listening to a CB radio for a moment  ::)

Just before singing it sounds like he is rapping his hand on what could be a table.

Bored ham?

TV DX Loggings / Re: I miss analog TV!

Used to love to do TV DX back over the past 20 years or so. Now its hard enough to get decent signals from the local TV stations whose towers are only about 25 to 30 miles away without losing some of the signal. I recently moved to the semi country from an old inner ring suburb of my local 1 million population city. At that place, I would get about 30 channels but now its down to about 15. I remember getting DX TV from nearly 1000 miles away down in Dallas TX during the late 80s on occasion....

I second your idea; while I like some of the digital subchannels, there was something extremely cool in picking up a station in another town. I didn't mind that the TV would sometimes turn into a radio (or you would see a picture but hear no sound.) I was too much of a dumbass as a kid to ask my father to buy a signal booster (antenna amp); we could've gotten stuff from Las Vegas or Mexico City if the spectrum were willing.

Digital TV sucks because it can't take any bottoming-out of the signal. I have to use a signal booster to get in the locals now.

People in La Mesa, CA and the Mount Helix area (very tony), STILL have lights on as of last night.

12 days of Christmas? Fuck that - make it 24! Or 36. Or an entire year!

What did they play?

Saw the videos; this screams military/intelligence test of some sort - unless it's just some guy with a rig that has excellent audio and he really likes how Homer Simpson's voice sounds in USB.

Let's flip a coin on this one. . . .

Somebody on Waste-O'-Time-Tube claimed it was all in audio processing and other "tricks" broadcasters know; I can acknowledge that the audio probably has been run through something, but the receiving range just gives away that the operator is using some sort of commercial-grade equipment. I don't want to know what it is, but I am damn sure it isn't a modified Drake T-4X hooked up to some Russian sledgehammer amp.

I'd guess he's using an ex-commercial transmitter; it sounds too slick to be a ham transmitter and a monster amp.

There were certain AM and oldies FM stations that sounded like "The Big Q" where I'm at, but the mid-80s wiped out that format.
