Utility / NMO 22376 SITOR-B 2120z 12/27/2014
« on: December 27, 2014, 2126 UTC »
Decoding SITOR-B transmissions from NMO Coast Guard Honolulu with various warnings to sailors such as 2 20 meter tress floating in the Coral Sea and the ship Sea Shell missing with it's last known position as 03.43.94N 105.36.41E. And the M/V Vespucci towing 10 8100 Meter long cables, some type of seismic survey.

Pretty interesting radio reading.

Various Christmas songs being played. Signal is weaker than normal for Captain Morgan. S-3
At 0245 hit hard by the static and mostly unreadable. And it sounded so good.

Decoded two sstv images on 6960 lsb at 0415 and 0425. This image is the better of the two.

Found this photo of Hugo Chavez I believe it to be the image.

The Butthole Surfers singing Pepper I think. S3-5 with some static.
Behind Blue Eyes at 0111Z?

After the FCC song a male said Mrs. Griffith that was terrific" a female voice said only "bye bye" and the station went off the air.

Heard station ids at 0011 and 0014 repeated three times each. A RAP song was played between ids seems off. Weak signal in the noise.

I corrected the spelling of the station per Mr. Yoder's Pirate Radio Annual.

Would like to thank N2UHC for the heads up on the station, first time I heard it even if for four-five minutes.

Playing country and western music, now playing John Henry. S7 signal.

Station id at 0147

Seems to be drifting down frequency. At 0209 6925.1.

Station came on frequency and played portions of two heavy metal songs, I think may have been the same song with about a 30 second break in the transmission. Off at 0021z.
S3 or so signal.

Not sure if it's the same signal, the music is quite different more like lounge music and the signal is much better at 0028z.

Station id at 0043z.


Vancouver Sun

OTTAWA — Canada’s regulator of the airwaves took another step Thursday in its crackdown on B.C.’s “pirate radio” industry, ordering Radio India to shut down by midnight.

Radio India, Sher-E-Punjab and Radio Punjab were targeted by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission in August after complaints of unfair competition by licensed B.C. broadcasters.

“We will not tolerate any business or individual that is broadcasting illegally in Canada,” Tom Pentefountas, chairman of the three-commissioner panel that heard arguments from Radio India last month, said in a statement.

Maninder Gill, the managing director of Radio India that is owned by his sister, did not respond to interview requests Thursday.

The two other stations last month signed “compliance agreements” last month, but the CRTC hasn’t made public the terms of those deals.

Some observers are questioning whether the CRTC’s tough talk is being followed up with action.

One of the CRTC-targeted, Washington-based transmitters that has for years sent Punjabi broadcasts into the Lower Mainland, KRPI 1550 AM, is still on the air but is no longer identifying itself on-air as Sher-E-Punjab.

“There seems to be a story here as nothing has changed for Sher-E-Punjab,” said Suzanne Rosser, a member of the Cross Border Coalition made up of Canadian and U.S. residents opposed to Sher-E-Punjab’s operations.

Sher-E-Punjab was run by the Richmond-based Badh family, which had to prove to the CRTC that it had sold its interest to, and severed its relationship with BBC Broadcasting, the Washington company that owns KRPI. BBC had been majority-owned by Bhag Khela, a longtime business associate of the Badhs and a resident of the U.S.

A number of people who have followed the CRTC action closely claim Khela is related through marriage to the Badhs. Members of the Badh family have refused Sun requests to explain the transaction.

The CRTC, meanwhile, has refused to provide details of the compliance agreement because it “contains personal, financial and commercially sensitive information,” spokeswoman Patricia Valladao said Thursday in an email.

One listener, Jaspal Atwal, told The Sun Thursday that the Sher-E-Punjab name has been removed from the Richmond building where Sher-E-Punjab programming was produced but the hosts and programs remain unchanged despite the compliance order.

The Sher-E-Punjab name hasn’t completely vanished. The station ran an ad in the Surrey-based Indo-Canadian Voice newspaper last week boasting that “Sher-E-Punjab, your first owned & operated South Asian AM Station.”

One of KRPI 1550’s hosts, Harjit Gill, told The Sun Thursday that the staff are going to eventually be moved to Ferndale and will have to obtain visas to work in the U.S.


QSLs Received / Voice Of Honor QSL

Received this QSL from the Voice Of Honor for last nights broadcast. Thank you.

Program started with the sound of a chainsaw over the music, now playing thriller at 0242z. S7 signal with little noise.

Radio Redskin just signed on.

It appears that Old Time Radio is back on the air on 3395 as I can hear some type of radio play in the noise. Weak signal just above the noise floor.

General Radio Discussion / Radio Gramox
« on: August 27, 2014, 0148 UTC »
Received the following email from a MW DX group, I haven't been able to pick up the broadcast and have not seen any other loggings of the station.

Radio Gramox is a private FM-station in Tampere, Finland, on 106,8 MHz.
Recently they have got legal licence for AM-broadcasts on 3960, 7230 and 25760 kHz. Power is announced to be 50 Watts.
Just now I am listening to them on 3960 kHz. Stn plays old jazz & entertainment music from 1940's to 1950's.
Please, note that this is not a pirate stn. They have also licence to use 729 kHz which is the Tampere frequency in Geneva MW-plan. So far no activity noted on 729. Licece is valid until the end of October 2014.
