Shortwave Pirate / UNID 6930 USB 0018 UTC 26 November 2018
« on: November 26, 2018, 0024 UTC »
UNID station on 6930 kHz, USB mode, 0018 UTC, 26 November, 2018.

Single song, Love Me or Leave Me, Billie Holiday.  Decent, but not strong, signal into the Mojave Desert of California.

Single song and appears to be gone.


The last V24 transmission, that I know of, was on November 9, 2018, 1500 UTC, on 6215 kHz.  That transmission was normal.  To the best of my knowledge, from that day to today (November 22, 2018) V24 has missed every historically scheduled transmission.  Further, during that time I have monitored every past used V24 frequency from before 1100 UTC to past 1700 UTC, every day (as I have for many years, minus a handful of days in the past 10 years), all with no results.

Either V24 has not transmitted since Nov 9, or they are using an entirely new set of frequencies, or have shifted to a different time set.  V24 has occupied roughly the same times of transmission, between 1100 and 1700 UTC, for at least 15 years.

A real possibility is that V24 has been inactive but will eventually return to the air.  This has happened several times in the past, missing every transmission for a week or more.  At one point V24 was off air for several months, only to return as before.

Time will tell if this is temporary or not, however since there are only one or two more scheduled transmissions this month, and V24 has already missed the companion transmissions to both of those, it is quite likely that the next time we might hear V24 will be on Dec 1, on 6310 kHz, at 1530 UTC.


Spy Numbers / V07, schedule change November, 2018
« on: November 04, 2018, 0125 UTC »
In keeping with last months frequency change of V07, this month has also shifted frequencies.

15946 kHz, 04-11-2018, 0100z, V07, USB
14846 kHz, 04-11-2018, 0120z, V07, USB

984  984  984  000

Since it was a null message there was no 0140z transmission, but a good bet for the freq at 0140z, when used, is either 13486 kHz or 12486 kHz, my bet is on 13846 kHz.  I guess we will find out later this month.

(edit)  Most recent schedule from my site:


Spy Numbers / The last known transmissions of both V30 and M97
« on: October 07, 2018, 2222 UTC »
I recently uploaded a few new videos to my YouTube channel.  Two of them are the last known transmissions of Vietnamese V30 and M97.  These stations made their last known transmissions on May 6, 2016.  It is possible they are actually still active, but on frequencies and times that are unreported, however these are the last known activities of the stations.

Spy Numbers / V07, apparent schedule changes starting October, 2018
« on: October 07, 2018, 1216 UTC »
V07 underwent significant schedule changes from July 2017 to July 2018, but after that time appeared to be stable for a few months.  In October, 2018, it again changed frequencies.  While the time of transmission remained the same, all three frequencies, and the associated callup, were brand new.  Only time will tell if this is a one-time thing or if it is an indicator of more changes to come.

15925 kHz, 07-10-2018, 0100z, V07, USB
14725 kHz, 07-10-2018, 0120z, V07, USB

HF Mystery Signals / Merging all 1 PPS pip / pulse / tick logs
« on: June 23, 2018, 1311 UTC »

On page 1 of this forum there are 14 different posts about the same signal on different frequencies.  In an attempt to clean things up, and so other things don't get lost between, I am going to move all the 1 PPS pip posts to this thread.

It would be nice if we could keep posts related to these signals in a single thread (or maybe two of them, one for reports and one for speculation / theorization), makes it easier to find information.

Keep in mind this is not the same as some other Pip/ditter posts, such as the multi frequency Pips Network.  This is a thread for the 1 pulse per second, 16 msec per pulse, pips that sound something like a time station.


So far UNIDed station, 6949.47 kHz, AM mode.  Wide and clean audio, about 10.2 kHz total width in AM.  Noticed it about 0346 or so with a carrier,a nd a minute or so later heard the audio.  S9+ into the Mojave Desert.

(edit) ID at 0405 as Solar Centric.
(edit)  Off at 0414 UTC

Spy Numbers / Spy Numbers database, a resource you should use
« on: March 11, 2018, 2121 UTC »
For those of you not familiar, Chris has a long standing searchable database you can log your numbers station reports in.  The link is here:

It is a great resource for historical numbers station activity.  When people log to it regularly it can be used to predict schedules.  In the past that was a huge plus, today with several groups keeping good, and current, schedules online this feature is not quite as important as it was.

And if you log to the DB you can select to have your logs submitted to the Spooks mailing list, sharing with other listeners interested in numbers stations.

This DB really only works if users populate it, so give it a look, give it a try.  The more people who use it the better it will be.

And so there is no misunderstanding, I love seeing the activity on this forum, the recent increase in reports is awesome.  I am not suggesting reporting to the DB instead of here, rather it would be great to see them both used.  The DB is awesome and searchable, while the forums promote discussion.


So far UNID station, a couple of comedy skits, one about Feringi Beverage antennas and one about Pee Wees playhouse (too obvious to be a connection?)

Decent signal, S6 to S8 in the Mojave Desert

(edit) started music at 0320 UTC
