North American Shortwave Pirate / UNID 7615 AM 0230 UTC 14 Feb 2017
« on: February 14, 2017, 0235 UTC »
UNID station 7615 kHz AM, 0230 UTC, 14 February, 2017.  The same programming as the station formerly known as YHWH.


Spy Numbers / MOVED: 4724USB up to 23.25UTC 30 Jan 2017

North American Shortwave Pirate / UNID 6935 USB 0132 UTC 30 Jan 2017
« on: January 30, 2017, 0146 UTC »
So far unided station on 6935 USB  Not very strong, and a bit of QSB, but when it fades up it sounds like nice and wide audio, I would say 3.8 kHz or wider.

Appears to be off at 0146 UTC.

HF Beacons / 21 January, 2017, spin around some beacons
« on: January 22, 2017, 0536 UTC »
I had to be up early for work today, so I thought I would start the day before I left checking some beacons.  And then when work canceled it turned into how many beacons can I hear in a day?  First tune was 1220z, last one I counted was 2250z, so a bit over 10 hours from first to last.

Listed in frequency ascending order, not time of reception.

2008.41 kHz, 1222z, unnamed beacon (active for several years now, but not sure if it has ever been reported here), cycles on and off, when on one 0.19 sec dit every 2.89 sec, or about 21 per minute.  This is NOT the same as the beacon on the "active" list, or if it is the same beacon the cycle changed a couple of years ago, that one had a .86 sec long dash.

2016.7 kHz, 1245z, unnamed beacon (active for several years now, but not sure if it has ever been reported here), cycles on and off, when on about 0.15 sec dit about every 0.88 sec, or about 68 per second.  Was very weak this morning and never caught more than one or two dits at a time, in the past was more clear.

2097.3 kHz, 1224z, A Beacon

4070.33 kHz, 1228z, ZN Beacon

4070.38 kHz, 1240z, GT Beacon

4095.76 kHz, 1556z, Viking

4096.06 kHz, 1804z, I think unnamed beacon, about a 6.8 second long dash about every 10.5 seconds, very pronounced chirp on the leading edge of the dash.

4096.37 kHz, 1233z, Haystack

4174.8 kHz, 1254z, Z beacon

5824.5 kHz, 1815z, unnamed beacon, this is one of several unnamed beacons that have been active for several years in the 5824 area, but only heard this one today, not sure if it has ever been reported here.  Dit about 0.19 second long sent about every 3.75 second, or about 16 per second.

6626.5 kHz, 1811z, possibly Rainy beacon, but timing was slightly off so not 100% sure it was not the unnanmed beacon near the same frequency.

6626.58 kHz, 1811z, Rocky Beacon

6700.4 kHz, 1815z, Hexy2K beacon

7000.74 kHz, 1821z, Stumpy beacon.  This beacon varies the time between dits over time, not sure if it is temperature related or something else.  Today, and at this time, it was a 0.125 sec long dit every 16.1 seconds, but I have seen much longer and much shorter times between dits.

7998.74 kHz, 2250z, Shorty beacon

That was all the unlicensed beacons heard for today, also heard a lot of Russian single letter beacons, but if I post them that will be a separate post.


Spy Numbers / New V24 prediction chart, first quarter of 2017
« on: January 16, 2017, 1656 UTC »
It looks like V24 underwent some pretty significant schedule changes 1 January, 2017.  Below is a best guess of the new schedule, but keep in mind it takes a couple months to confirm changes, and we are only half way through the first month of the new schedule, so this probably is not 100%.

Of note they appear to have killed the 6215 khz frequency again, or they have moved it to a new sched near the end of the month, and so not seen so far.

Version 16.0, V24 schedule, first quarter, 2017:

And as always, the latest schedule (V16.0 at the moment, but will change as new scheds are made) on my web site can be found at:


UNID station, 6925 kHz, USB mode, about 0230 UTC, 7 January 2017.  Very weak at first but came up a bit.  By 0232 I could hear the start of Crazy Train, Ozzy Osbourne.

Then at 0235 it was either covered by or changed to a digital signal, maybe FAX.

SSTV at about 0239 UTC, too weak to get a decode but some mode that resulted in a short SSTV, so maybe not one of the Scottie or Martin modes.  (Edit, was Robot 24 mode)

And apparently off after the SSTV.

(edit)  Here is the image, I had to go back to the recording and clean it up a bit before I could get a decode on it.


Someone transmitting only the looped opening rifs of YHWHs music, Days of Hard Night, noticed at 0158 UTC, December 31, 2016, on 6925 kHz USB.  Ended at about 0201 UTC.  Never heard anything else.  About S6 here in the Mojave Desert.


Wolverine with "Testing 123, can anybody hear me" sign on at 0130 UTC, 6950 kHz, USB mode, 18 December, 2016.

Nice signal into the high desert tonight, and sounds good on the house sound system.  Mrs T says Hiya Wolverine, and thanks in advance for the show!

(edit) Possibly a California bound theme, maybe specifically San Francisco, since I think every song has mentioned San Fran.
