Hearing it here on 6938 with UTE QRM on 6941.  Noisy conditions here (local QRN).  S7 signal.  Unable to actually discern what is being played but I can hear something there.  Unable to copy at all in USB due to strong UTE signal near frequency.  S6-S7 as well on the NJ WebSDR (WebSDR is showing carrier frequency slightly lower at 6937.7 kHz).

at 2251, signal on my local radio is now strong enough to hear The Temptations - Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch and British accented announcer.  

Re-tuned my radio to 6937.7 and it does sound a bit better.  Still hearing faint UTE QRM from the signal on 6941.

2310 UTC - signal even stronger now.  UTE QRM is gone.  Nice wide audio.  Hearing it on the Grundig G3 portable nicely.  
2311 UTC - Cypress Hill - Insane In The Brain  ;D

Voiceover the rest of Cypress Hill into House of Pain - Jump Around

2318 UTC - Announcer: "KICK IT!" into Beastie Boys - Fight For Your Right

Killer tunes tonight CWR  8)

2340 UTC - operator chatter about Absolut vodka
2350 UTC - mild UTE QRM returning during the fades, Faith No More - Epic punching through on the peaks
2358 UTC - Judas Priest - Breaking The Law - kickass tune
2359 UTC - operator voice over Judas Priest, fading getting a bit worse
0000 UTC - now hearing Spanish language (I think) chatter on 6935 LSB causing some QRM

They're operating within the 17 meter ham band.  :o

About a S3 here, noisy, but completely readable signal.  Not hearing anything else from 18068 - 18168 kHz

Completely gone by 1445 UTC (stepped away from the radio for a minute, came back and it was gone).

Hearing old time music nice and mellow.  Excellent audio and a solid S9

Other / 6940 CW 0024 UTC

Hearing CW on 6940, peaking to S8


Back on at 0026

Blondie - Hanging On The Telephone  8) in progress at 2357

Hearing "Crazy Train" nicely through the local QRN 6969.0 kHz USB

Hearing what sounds like the Soviet National Anthem on 6935 USB.  Nice and loud tonight.  

Shoutout to R4002 (me!) and HFU 0140 UTC

Solid S9.  Top notch signal, armchair copy of "Lucky Man" in progress at 0101 UTC

Scorpions - Wind of Change at tune-in (0135 UTC)

Somebody forgot to turn the "template" feature off in MMSSTV  ;D

John Couger - Jack and Diane here solid S9 signal through the local QRN.

Love the cat theme! 

10/11 meters / Re: Different Language QSO'S on 25.845 LSB
« on: September 17, 2013, 2238 UTC »
The majority of "export" radios (also sold as "10-meter" radios but are switched "converted" down to 11-meters through a simple set of button pushes or another simple modification) cover considerably more frequencies below the 10 meter band allocation than they do above the 10-meter allocation.  The "standard" export radio frequency plan is six sets of 40 channels, 25.615-28.305 MHz.  I've heard of some of the newer radios going up to 30.105, 30.555 or even 31.005 MHz.  You'll notice each set of 40 channels is the same bandwidth as the legal CB band (450kHz).  Of course, some radios go below 25.615, usually down to 25.165 but some of them go down into 12 meters or even below, 24.715 or even 24.265 MHz.  

The two export radios I use, a Voyage VR9000 (a.k.a. Galaxy 88, Superstar 3900F/3900EFT, Super Jopix 2000, and a dozen others - of course they're all made by Ranger/RCI) covers 25.615-28.305 MHz.  My CRE 8900 covers up to 30.105MHz but I see no point in going above 10 meters when there's plenty of empty channels below 28.000 MHz.

So therefore, you're looking at people running exports on band "A" (assuming the legal CB band is band "D" - as it usually is), channel 19A - 27.195MHz "down three bands".  So that means the radios they're using have that lovely +10kHz switch, allowing you to get to the "A" channels (26.995, 27.045, 27.095, 27.145 and 27.195 MHz).  So each band really has 45 channels and not 40 channels.  I've heard truckers on 25.835 MHz plenty of times (band A, channel 19).  Makes sense don't it?  Just flip that band switch down to band A, I feel bad for these trucker's radios, I'm yet to hear of a CB antenna that can do 27.185MHz and 25.835MHz with a decent SWR.  You know these guys aren't adjusting their antennas when they move up and down the freeband.  

Hearing SSB transmissions below 27MHz is uncommon though.  Most of the stuff below CB channel 1 [26.965 MHz] I hear is in AM mode, and I'd say 3/4 of the transmissions I've heard above CB channel 40 [27.405 MHz] are in SSB mode.  Of course, there's some AM above channel 40, usually in the form of truckers flipping their bandswitches up to get away from the noise of the legal 40 channels.  Interesting to see SSB below channel 1.  I've noticed it on 26.500, 26.515, 26.540 and 26.555, all LSB..but below 26MHz is a new one for me.

It seems like there's a "gentleman's agreement" on the freeband, as much as hams (especially the QRZ or eHam forum types ;)) would hate to hear something like that.

Could it have been some sort of jamming system? 

I could see IEDs and other remote-control bombs using the 26-28 MHz band, considering how many R/C frequency allocations there are there (and in the 29MHz, 30MHz, 31MHz, 35MHz and other "high-HF" and "low-VHF" bands).

10/11 meters / 26.485 data signal

I hear it (26485) when the band is open, especially to Mexico/Latin America.  Only in LSB and CW mode.  There's similar activity around 27.650 MHz. 

27.650 is almost always there.  Was wondering if anybody else on the east coast of the U.S. (or anywhere really) could also hear these signals.

I'm interested in what military/government use of the 25-28 is still in existence, even the proliferation of export radios to the point of every 5-10 kHz from 26.5 to 28 has signals on it during a good band opening.

RIP Storm.

Wish You Were Here is one of the greatest album covers of all time.  Dark Side of The Moon is iconic.
