North American Shortwave Pirate / UNID 6925 AM 2000* UTC + 12/28/2015
« on: December 28, 2015, 2101 UTC »
There's been a carrier on 6925 AM on the K2SDR WebSDR waterfall since I started listening to the UNID on 6925 USB that was playing Beavis & Butthead audio.  Per Dimbulb in that station's log thread, there's somebody re-transmitting an amateur radio net on 6925 kHz AM as well.  I saw the carrier stay the whole time there was activity on 6925 USB but was not able to hear any audio in LSB mode.  Carrier dropped off at 2030 UTC and then came back up, noticeably stronger, at 2032 UTC.  

After the Beavis and Butthead station on 6925 USB signed off at 2053 UTC, I'm still seeing the carrier on 6925 at 2100 UTC, much weaker than before but its still there.  No audio on AM or USB/LSB can be heard on the WebSDR or on my local RX setup, but I do hear the carrier on my local setup as well.  

Wanted to give this retransmission/rebroadcast its own thread...if there's already one floating around somewhere feel free to merge this with it admin
guys :D

MUCH stronger carrier popped up at 2102 UTC for roughly a minute and then disappeared.   ???

As of 2104 I'm hearing very weak music (I think) on 6925 AM.  Carrier is fading up and down, disappearing off the waterfall completely at points.

Beavis & Butthead on USB S6, off sometime before 2055z

 - and also -

Net on AM at S4, can only copy this if I listen on LSB to cut out Beavis & Butthead.
Must be live or recent recording since net control station is wishing folks "Happy New Year".
Signal is in/out of the noise and have not copied any net ID.
Hearing net control "Alpha Two Quebec?" working various ham callsigns (mostly from 7-land), just quick contacts.
Still going at 2055z, better copy with B&B signed off.
Net off at 2100z - Finally got the Net ID, "The Noontime Net"   http://www.noontimenet.org/
Music now...


1577
Seeing a carrier slightly below 6935 kHz.  Looks like 6934.75 kHz or thereabouts.  No audio but there's definitely a carrier there of some kind.  S5 signal level, just above the noise floor at this point.

Gone at 0309 UTC.  Anybody else see/hear this?

North American Shortwave Pirate / UNID 6900.3 AM 2200 UTC 12/20/2015
« on: December 20, 2015, 2200 UTC »
Have a strong carrier at roughly 6900.3 Showing 6900.34 maybe 6900.35 kHz on the K2SDR WebSDR.  No audio heard yet.

2200-2203 UTC - Carrier being switched on and off.  Maybe somebody tuning up?  Could be closer to 6900.4 kHz

10/11 meters / 27815 AM Spanish Language YL Dispatcher
« on: November 09, 2015, 1540 UTC »
This is a new catch for me.  Usually the taxicabs hang around the "lows" (25-26 range) as opposed to the higher parts of 11 meters closer to 28000.  I found this one while tuning around for UK FM activity.

27815 AM.  Signal is anywhere from an S4 (nearly the noise level at this location) to a loud and clear S9.  Hearing the female dispatcher only.

10/11 meters / 11 meter DX 8 November 2015 1600 UTC +
« on: November 08, 2015, 1609 UTC »
All logged with Ranger Voyage VR9000 all-mode export radio (25615-28305 frequency coverage) and 11-meter dipole.


26555 LSB - Latin America SSB DX calling frequency (see also 27455 USB)
26585 AM - Mexican AM chat freq, busy
26845 AM - Carrier, strong (S9).  Could be local.
27455 USB - Latin America SSB DX calling frequency (similar to 27555 USB, only for Spanish language operators)
27465 USB - Spanish language traffic
27500 CW - Dasher beacon of some kind.  One dash every second or so.  Gone at 1605 UTC
27825 AM - Spanish language traffic.  Since this is in AM, I'm guessing its truckers.  Would say taxi if there was  YL dispatcher.

Update starting at 1745 UTC:

26585 AM - Mexican calling frequency.  Not as busy as it was earlier today.
26615 AM - Seems like the guys usually on 26705/26715
26635 AM - Spanish language with "Better Off Alone" by Alice Deejay playing in background.  Rapid fades from S9 down to S3-4
26715 AM - The usual super loud (and sometimes overmodulated) signals from Puerto Rico
27415 AM - Spanish language
27425 AM - Spanish language, with roger beep.  OM talking to other (unreadable) stations.  S3-S4 signal.
27445 LSB - English language.  Southern US accents
27455 USB - Latin America SSB DX calling frequency.  Station in Mexico calling CQ
27535 AM - Spanish speaking OMs talking.  Could be truckers since they're using AM
27555 USB - Hearing beeps.  10AD340 calling CQ requesting QSY to 27600 (said this in Spanish and then English!).
27600 USB - 10AD718 (also IDing as 10AD340 ??) working another Spanish-speaking station in Aruba - other operator corrected him, its actually Curaçao!
27665 USB - Spanish language traffic.  Busy
27675 USB - Spanish language traffic, nice powerful signals.  Operators discussing antennas and their mobile radio setups
27685 USB - Spanish language traffic
27690 USB - Spanish language traffic
27745 AM - Spanish language traffic, getting obliterated by OTH radar QRM
27775 AM - Spanish heard, with roger beeps.  YL and OM.  Possibly taxi dispatch

On a personal note, I have visited Aruba a couple years ago with my VHF/UHF scanning equipment (RadioShack Pro-96) and scanned 25-50 with a VHF rubber duck and heard several very powerful stations in AM and SSB in the 27400-27900 region.  

The very strong signals on 26615 make sense too.  Channel 9 (27065) is listed on Spanish-language 11 meter DXer websites as a AM calling frequency, and 26615 is Channel 9 "down one band".  So I bet they just flicked the bandswitch down from "D" to "C" and continued talking.

10/11 meters / Strong Italian Language 27415 AM 1553 UTC 4 Nov 2015
« on: November 04, 2015, 1556 UTC »
Some European DX coming in now.  Hearing a very loud Italian station on 27415 AM.  Sounds like the high power stations that usually hang out on 27465 AM. 

Getting some fading now at 1556 UTC.  He's working another station and there's some SSB underneath.

1588
I know this is a freeband frequency often used by taxicab companies (you'll notice the YL dispatcher) but there's now a station playing music on top of/with the taxi dispatcher lady, IDing as "La Ciudad de Mexico" followed by all sorts of roger beeps and noise toys.

This is likely indicative of another 11 meter band opening today :D

1433 UTC - Now hearing the taxi YL lady again, with music in the background.  
1435 UTC - OM ID something unintelligible followed by "La Ciudad de Mexico" and more music.  Now slightly stronger than the YL taxicab dispatcher.

1589
Got a carrier 6950.6 or 6950.7 AM (Chris says 6950.7 in the chat room so we'll go with that)

2330 UTC - listening on the K2SDR WebSDR now.  Seems to be at something like 6950.69 kHz.  Religious-sounding music

2352 UTC - Discussing British Expeditionary Force losses...old time news report
