Longwave Loggings / Alexanderson Day, Sunday, June 29, 2014

Just came across a reminder and thought that I would pass this on. Tried for the last two years and haven't heard a thing but its all about the chase.

Transmissions on Alexanderson Day, Sunday,  June 29, 2014
SAQ will be on air on Sunday 29 June. We try to start the transmitter soon after 08.30 UTC so there will be a test signal from about 08.40 UTC and a message will be sent at 09.00 UTC. A similar procedure will start at 11.30 UTC and the message will be repeated at 12.00 UTC. The frequency is 17.2 kHz CW.

WX4NHC currently operating on 14325 USB. Station celebrating 34 years of broadcasting from the NHC

Copied this image after Wolverine Radio sent his. Hoping that others will have a better decode.

Here is the second SSTV image, hope that someone post a better image.

Nice strong signal and station ids at 0238 and 0245z. S9 + probably the best signal that I have heard them.

Going through some old boxes and found this QSL. This was printed on letter size glossy photo paper for a broadcast in 2000. The return address was from Canada.

Song Secret Agent Man working through the static. Sounded like an old time radio show before the song.

Thanks for the tip markokpik I should have let you start the post, sorry.

Just received this QSL for tonight's broadcast. Thanks for the QSL and I'll be listening again next year.

Just started up for the annual broadcast.

Now playing music with a S9 signal.
ID at 0219
Very nice S9 signal and only using my R-4B with a wire tossed over the curtain rod in my bedroom.

Nice way to start my evening hearing Paul Starr playing music. Fighting a lot of noise right now but enjoyable none the less.

Spring Sucks:

   Thursday I went into the basement to get a wrench to take the dead battery out of my truck and buy a new on. Boy what a surprise there was about an inch of water over most of my basement floor. Well I forgot about the truck and bought a replacement sump pump for the twenty something year old one. With work I only was able to start the major salvage effort today. Lucky that most of our stuff was in plastic bins but there were some things left on the floor that suffered.
   As I bent under my work bench to check for problems I saw the box that held the new baby bottle sterilizer that we purchased so so long ago.  And I got an immediate lump in my throat and tears welled up in my eyes as I had a flash back to a happier time. Yes I knew what that box signified to me and how dear it was to me. Even before I read the label that listed all of the contents I remembered what was in there.  Yes copies of my old radio club journals, to be specific:

DX Reporter: 6/82 to 9/87
ACE: 2/85 to 11/86; 1/87 to 9/87
Frendx: 1/87 to 9/87
Speedx; 1/87 to 9/87
NNRC: 11/79 to 9/87 

   What a terrible loss. Now for the reason for the post; should I try and dry them out, is it worth the effort? To be honest an hour ago I wanted to chuck them all but now I’m leaning to trying to dry them out. Let me know what you think. One last thing I don’t have a sewer so it is contaminated by regular old fashioned skanky ground water.
   As I carried my drowned memories up the basement stairs I passed the box that held the baby basinet that my wife wanted me to put back into storage as our grandson being a year old is too big to use any more. And yes she placed it on the high point of the basement floor, it sat there high and dry. Imagine that something that could be easily replaced safe and my memories slowly dying in my arms. What was she thinking?
   Well off to buy another floor fan and de-humidifier.

Just turned the radio on to an S7 signal and country and western music.
Thanks for the id, I didn't catch it, in and out of the room.

Station playing some type of metal music. At 0128 This Is Radio QSL repeated three times adn back into music.
Changed the station name to unid as I have heard another station id, not sure who it could be.

Thanks for the ids, I'm still having trouble making out the id.
