Checking some KiwiSDRs

W3HFU KiwiSDR - Westminster, MD - band fairly quiet, but some Latin American activity coming in, including taxi cabs on 25 MHz and 26 MHz and somebody playing sound effects and music clips on 28005.0 AM (with Spanish language over it, lots of echo too!) - CBers on 10 meters

Checked back in at 1450 UTC

So I noticed that in addition to Highland Falls, NY 27.255 MHz FSK network, there are at least two other KiwiSDRs that have FSK data burst networks local to them.  The signals on these are identical to the signals noted on the Highland Falls, NY KiwiSDR (WB2EEE).

*N1NTE-1 Holland, MA (grid FN32) 42.032759 N, 72139970 W - 27.255 MHz - strong to fair to weak FSK data bursts, same format as the other receivers, much wider range of signal strengths, possibly indicating multiple systems with coverage overlapping this receiver's RX range capability

*WA2ZKD/1 Rockport, Maine (grid FN54le) 44.175034 N, 69.079214 W - 27.255 MHz - strong FSK bursts

*N2LAW Brookline, New Hampshire (grid FN42dr) 42.711372 N, 71.669474 W - 27.255 MHz - strong to fair FSK bursts, same format as the Highland Falls, NY and Rockport Maine KiwiSDRs.

Rockport, Maine and Brookline, New Hampshire are about 175 miles straightline distance from each other...and, as I'm typing this, the band appears to be almost entirely closed at those locations so the presumption is that the 27255 systems are within a 10-20 mile radius of the receiver locations.

There are a lot of receivers to look through...I am currently on another KiwiSDR in Jumonville, PA and 27255 is clear except for local AM CB chatter.  I am noticing a fair amount of out of band 11 meter activity, especially on 27505 AM, 27510 USB, 27535 AM, 27555 USB, 27560 USB, 27615 AM and 27630 USB but given the lack of any other activity on the band I would venture that the activity I'm hearing is somewhat local (unless the band is starting to wake up at 20:25 UTC - 20:30 UTC.

Maybe the band is starting to wake up after all.  Numerous new signals popping up in the legal 40 CB band 26965-27405 (the Usual Suspects, 27025 AM, 27085 AM, 27265 AM and 27285 AM active) and several additional active frequencies in the 27410-28000 range showing up on the Jumonville PA KiwiSDR.  27445 LSB, 27455 USB and some others.  27255 now has a strong AM QSO going on it, no sign of the familiar FSK bursts though.

I will continue to check SDRs in my free time and update this list accordingly.  Consider it a work in progress to see how many of these systems on 27255 (and the other Part 95 RC frequencies - 26.995, 27.045, 27.095, 27.145 and 27.195) are local to these KiwiSDRs.

*Izhevsk city Izhevsk, Russia | Grid LO66ou:  26.945 MHz and 26.960 MHz - near-constant FSK paging or data burst datalink system

1030 UTC / 1430 local


Even more ISM hooks all over the 26-28 MHz region on the waterfall today.  A couple of them are actually within the 26957-27283 ISM region. The 26.945 MHz and 26.960 MHz paging systems are, as to be expected, super busy.  26945 especially so.  The 27200 FM guys were really strong.  27135 AM (channel 15 AM) is apparently used like 27185 AM is here in the USA.

26945 kHz FM - 26.945 MHz FM - FSK data bursts - likely paging systems (numerous signals on frequency)
26960 kHz FM - 26.960 MHz FM - FSK data bursts - likely paging systems (numerous signals on frequency)
27125 kHz FM - 27.125 MHz FM - Weak FM signal, including several seconds of unmodulated carrier
27130 kHz FM - 27.130 MHz FM - Sounds like taxi cab dispatch
27135 kHz AM - 27.135 MHz AM - Two OM CBers chatting, fair signals - busy nearly constantly
27195 kHz FM - 27.195 MHz FM - Weak FM signals on frequency, some QRM from the 27.200 MHz guys
27200 kHz FM - 27.200 MHz FM - Two OM CBers chatting, very strong signals, SIO 555 nice FM audio
27255 kHz FM - 27.255 MHz FM - Caught tail end of a FM voice transmission in Russia
27585 kHz FM - 27.585 MHz FM - Weak YL voice heard, presumed taxi dispatcher/ taxi controller 27.585 FM

263
LO66ou grid, Izhevsk Russia

Band pretty quiet this evening (2300 local time likely explains why) - but the 26.945 MHz and 26.960 MHz paging systems were very busy.  26.960 MHz had signals on it nearly nonstop.  Lots of "hooks" (ISM signals) both within and above and below the 26957 - 27283 ISM band. 

26945 kHz FM - 26.945 MHz FM - FSK data bursts - likely paging systems (numerous signals on frequency)
26960 kHz FM - 26.960 MHz FM - FSK data bursts - likely paging systems (numerous signals on frequency)
27130 kHz FM - 27.130 MHz FM - YL taxi dispatcher (I think) - taxi cab controller
27135 KHz FM - 27.135 MHz FM - CBer, Russian (obviously) - much stronger than the 27130 signal
27225 kHz AM - 27.225 MHz AM - OM CB operator heard, weak signal
27645 kHz FM - 27.645 MHz FM - Taxi cab dispatch, YL dispatcher (weak)




264
Hearing two Spanish-speaking OMs on 27.065 MHz AM - 27065 AM - CB channel 9.  Strangely, 26585 AM, 26705 AM, 26715 AM are all quiet...but 27065 AM is busy.

The rest of the band is basically dead at the moment..

265
Morning activity - not sure if the band is starting to wake up or if this is just sporadic-E

25695 AM - YL taxi cab dispatcher with roger BLEEP
25745 AM - Spanish language, presumed taxi cab dispatch
26175 AM - OM and YL chatting, Spanish language, possibly also a taxi dispatcher (weak)
26205 AM - YL taxi dispatcher - Spanish language
26365 AM - Spanish language, weak, OMs chatting...possibly truckers, does not sound like taxi cab dispatch lady
26455 AM - Spanish language chatter with roger beeps, possibly a taxi dispatcher
26515 AM - Spanish language, very weak
26565 AM - Spanish speaking OM heard
26585 AM - Spanish language, multiple stations at points, Mexican trucker and taxi common channel
26665 AM - Spanish language, weak
26705 AM - Spanish language, heard mention of Puerto Rico (the usual suspects here - expect 26715 AM and others)

Heard several stations chatting on 26815 AM 26.815 MHz AM before I started the video recording.  I actually was able to speak to two of the stations (after I stopped recording) using the CRE 8900 radio in the video...and the antenna I used was less than ideal for sure.  Transmitter power output is around 8-10 watts AM carrier power, good band conditions recently on 11 meters.

Recorded during a big band opening on 11 meters back on 06/14/20. 

269
49.83 MHz, pretty wide signal (sounded good on 49.825 MHz and 49.835 MHz in addition to 49.830 MHz).  I was using a VHF high band 1/4 wave antenna, which is certainly not the best antenna.  Noted at least part of the signal on 49.840 MHz too. 

https://youtu.be/sJizl4V45sA

It sounds like somebody has a room monitor just on, you can hear a TV or radio in the background...at 0:59 or 1:00 in you can hear somebody say "oh you ready?".  More chatter around 1:30 and 1:40.  Interestingly enough, my scanner actually decoded too different CTCSS tones - 192.8 Hz and 196.6 Hz, on frequency. 

270
Virginia House Radio coming in very nicely this morning on 107.7 MHz FM in downtown Richmond.  Music - faded into a relay of the local NOAA Weather Radio All-Hazards station WXK65 (162.475 MHz). 

Receiver is a factory stock Toyota AM/FM car radio with factory FM whip antenna (a real 1/4 wave steel FM whip antenna).

I managed to get two videos of the activity on 107.7 MHz:

Part 1 - https://youtu.be/Y5c3H7YibM8
