Pee Wee on 6955 kHz, USB mode, 0226 UTC, February 12, 2016.  Bluesy music or at least Blues inspired.  S6 into the Mojave Desert.

CW ID at 0237, with more than ID, however I had the radio turned down and only noticed the CW in time to hear Pee Wee.

Off at 0240.

UNID station on 6949.5 kHz AM mode, Feb 04, 2016, noticed at 0311 UTC.

Sounds kind of like Solar Centric Radio, but no ID given yet.

(edit) 0317z Solar Centric ID

Solar Centric Radio with music at 2113 UTC, 23 January, 2016, on 6935.35 kHz in AM mode.  I tuned in at 2113 UTC but from the waterfall it looks like they started at 2100 UTC.  ID at 2116 UTC, and announced that in a few minutes he would be playing a song in "hi fidelity, I hope you have wide filters because I ain't using any".

T!

(edit) Off air mid song 2121 UTC.

UNID station, with show themes?  S8 here in the Mojave Desert.

At a guess this is going to be Solar Centric Radio, but no ID heard yet.

2338 UTC CHIPs theme
2340 UTC 6 Million DOllar Man theme
2346 UTC Speed Racer theme

(edit)  Solar Centirc ID at 2349 UTC

(edit 2)  Off at 2356 UTC

HF Beacons / Some beacons this morning, January 10, 2016
« on: January 10, 2016, 1715 UTC »
Although I look for/at beacons often, I am not very consistent on reporting them.  With the apparent recent additions to the beacon world, Viking, Haystack, the new Windy, and others, I thought I might run around the hobby / unofficial beacons once and post what is being heard here this morning, January 10, 2016.  These are the known beacons heard this morning.

Pre-sunrise:

1444 UTC 2008.36 kHz, periodic beacon, 90 seconds and 3 minutes off, 0.15 sec dit every 2.5 seconds
1445 UTC 2018.4 kHz, periodic beacon QRM preventing accurate measurements
1447 UTC 2097.3 kHz, A, sending Morse A every 9.8 seconds
1448 UTC 4094.51 kHz, X, sending Morse X every 6.75 seconds
1450 UTC 4095.9 kHz, Viking, 3.1 second dash every 6.25 seconds
1450 UTC 4096.3 kHz, Hexie, 1.0 second dash every 2.2 seconds
1450 UTC 4096.4 kHz, Haystack, 2.3 second dash every 5.4 seconds
1454 UTC 4101.93 kHz, Windy, W followed by dits to indicate wind speed, now includes periodic "TMP XX B XXX" where TMP appears to be temperature and B appears to be Battery voltage
1458 UTC 7998.4 kHz, 0.75 second dash every 3.1 seconds
1500 UTC 8500.08 slow dasher, too weak to get accurate measurements on dashes and timing


Post-sunrise:
1518 UTC, 4097 kHz, Inyo-Whooper, for the first 20+ minutes after this one comes on the sag during transmission is much smaller and the frequency starts shifting down as time goes on
1536 UTC, 4095.92 kHz, Coxie, 5.8 second dash (pronounced chirp on leading edge) every 10.4 seconds
1540 UTC, 6625.9 kHz, Rainy
1604 UTC, 8193.7 kHz, Marin Dit, 0.15 second dit every 0.95 second
1633 UTC, 6626.4 kHz, Rocky
1737 UTC, 6700.4 kHz, Hexy2k

As normal I ran across several other ditters / dashers that might or might not be hobby / unlicensed.  Deciding what to post to this forum and what to not can be interesting.  One that might be interesting to keep an eye on is right below the Rocky / Rainy pair, I have it in my log a couple of times now:
1535 UTC, 6623.64 kHz, dasher, 1.5 second dash every 3.0 seconds

(edit) Hexy2k did eventually show up, as noted above.

HF Beacons / New W combined with TMP beacon?
« on: January 10, 2016, 0224 UTC »
I think I have not heard Windy here for some time, I will have to look at some past spectrum recordings and see if it was there and I just did not realize it.

This evening I realized I had Windy, on 4101.92 kHz, sending its normal W followed by dits to indicate wind speed.  After a few cycles though there were other characters sent.  It is now periodically apparently sending Temperature (in the form "TMP XX") and possibly battery voltage (in the form "B XX.X").

Has Windy been like this for some time and I just missed it?  Or is this a new Windy?

UNID station, 6925 kHz, USB, Dec 21, 2015, 0455 UTC.

0455 UTC a guitar version of Silent Night.

Amphetamine Radio up on 6930 kHz USB, 0235 UTC, Dec 14, 2015.  S5 into the blowing, slushy, Mojave Desert.    TX started at 0200, but I did not turn up the volume until 0235.

SSTV at 0248

Other / Pips network up, multiple frequencies, 1413 UTC, Dec 06, 2015
« on: December 06, 2015, 1435 UTC »
Pips network of ditters is up again today, on many freqs.  At 1413 UTC I noticed it was up in the 0.125 x 6.0 second format, no idea how long it was up before I noticed.

This set was up form before 1413 to 1512 UTC, Dec 06, 2015.

Early list of freqs, as usual there were 2 sets up:
4900
5225
5450
5575
6225
6550
6725
6750
7700
8275
8825
8975
9050
9225
10050
11025
11150
11225
11300
12025
13250
13325
13875
14400
15100
15550
15625
16000
16725
17475
17650  B
17950  B
17975
18025
18100  B
18625
19300

Frequencies with no letter all belong to one set of frequencies, frequencies followed by a "B" are the second set.  There are 34 frequencies on this list in the first set, however the 0.125 second pulse every 6.0 seconds allows for 48 possible frequencies.  I can confirm that every freq in the 4900 to 19300 kHz range is accounted for, by monitoring any given freq and the one below and above you can tell if you missed a frequency.  I have used this technique to find frequencies I missed at first that were buried under another signal.  So potentially 14 frequencies in the first set are unfound, they would have to be above 19300 kHz or below 4900 kHz.  Because of how strong the 19300 kHz signal was, and how weak the 4900 kHz signal was I strongly suspect the missing freqs are all below 4900 kHz and were unheard because of propagation.

Other / Pips network up, many freqs, Dec 05, 2015, 1425 UTC
« on: December 05, 2015, 1445 UTC »
The Pips network is up on multiple frequencies, from below 5000 kHz to above 19000 kHz, 1425 UTC, December 05, 2015.  It is in the 0.125 second long pulse every 6 seconds mode.  I am making wideband recordings right now for later review, and will include a freq list later.

This cycle was up from 1425 UTC (noticed in progress) to off air at 1503 UTC.

Seen on these freqs (this is the list after going over recordings, it is probably pretty close to complete):

4900
5225
5450
5575
6225
6550
6725
6750
7700
