Sure enough - turn off SSB mode on the Degen 1103 (DE1103) portable and extend the whip - there's an AM signal with techno-trance playing.


Between satellites staying up longer on the one hand and 'space junk' also seeing more time in orbit -

I see a "Less filling - tastes great!" debate in the offing ...

Wow!  Signal is 59 here (55555) in USB in Northern UT at 0219 utc.  Old jazz music and now early Rock-n-roll!  Great signal! 


As far away as UT ... impressive ...

0400z: Just tuned in again, seems to be AM or suppressed carrier with audio on USB only?  Either that or another inaudible station on 6940 in AM on top of WEAK.  Hard to tell here.
... recall the event a few weeks back, vis-a-vis WWCR and some sort of spurious appearing on 6940?

S4 carrier with S6 QRN


0255z "I'm a good monkey ... bad monkey ... "

0255z ID: "WBNY"

0287z Signal fade ... carrier still detectable in CW mode but audio very weak now ...

0317z Off-air; carrier no longer detectable ...


And a couple of comments from this stary ---Ok, I hate to nitpick here, but there is no way a .22 bullet would maintain enough velocity from falling to lodge in his head. Just like the myth of dropping a penny off the empire state building, air resistance will keep it's terminal velocity low enough that it won't have piercing power.---- and ---- Beautiful. Someone is actually quoting reality TV as a definitive source and calling OTHER people morons. The dumbing down of America is right on schedule.

Yeah, if you shot it STRAIGHT up it probably wouldn't injure you too badly. But how about if I pop a round off from a half mile away at, I don't know, how about a 45 degree angle? Think that might sting a little if it hit you in the side of your noggin? Let's see the Mythbusters try that one.

Hmmm ...


Episode 50: Bullets Fired Up http://kwc.org/mythbusters/2006/04/episode_50_bullets_fired_up_vo.html
Bullets fired up into the air can be lethal: busted, plausible, and confirmed.

Dunno ... didn't see this episode ...

Signal at S4 with peaks to S5 ... didn't realize he was back. QRN is picking up here a bit too ...

Noting a carrier on 6925 kHz ... will listen for audio next ...

0045z ... make that _was_ noting a carrier on 6925 kHz ... now off ...

What genre music is WEAK playing right now? I can't quite come up with a term for it ...

0023z Signal picking up some ... seeing >S5 here at times now ... still a very strange pgm!

Muzika - synthesizer-based 'buzz' tunes ATTM

0013z Rock on - AC/DC takes the stage ...

0018z Op live on mic ... average modulation/audio level too low to make much out given QRN (need some compression on local mic) ...

frn logs this as Radio Sycko ...

0026z Signal strength at S2 to S3 with mild to moderate QRN

0039z And off-air it would appear. Interesting pgm - thanks!

Easily copyable into Tejas this evening on a portable w/bulit-in whip.

1617z More announcer audio, announcing some articles of interest e.g. pirate radio ... some no longer available ...

1617z Relay/replay of British talk pgm material ... history of Pirate Radio (presumably in Britain)  just in case you want to listen to the original BBC radio 4 program  I ran this a few times before     It is on Pirates Week now   is kinda interesting
BTW  I haven't ID'd yet 16:50

Well, let's get this party started!!     (I need to bug out in about 20 min tho)
