UNID station up at 0134 UTC on 6925 kHz, USB.  Looks like RML to me.

0134  I'd Love to Change the WOrld,  Ten Years After
0140  Either a very long pause or gone


Turtlehead Radio up with ID on 6925 kHz, USB, at 0255 UTC, October 10, 2013.  On top of Liquid Radio on 6925.24 kHz AM.


UNIDed, 6945 kHz, USB, October 10, 2013, started about 0209 UTC.

0211 UTC, Everybody Knows
0214 UTC, Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Iron Maiden
0228 UTC, Off?
0231 UTC, back on, Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, Gordon Lightfoot
0237 UTC, Simple Man, Lynyrd Skynyrd
0243 UTC, RedMercury Labs ID

Fairly sure this is Red Mercury Labs (edit, and it was ;) ).


UNIDed signal, S7+ here, 6940 USB.  Judging by the signal features it is probably RML, although "The Late Movie" has similar features.  I am betting RML.

0242, "Big Time" Peter Gabrial

0301, RML voice.


The Late Movie Show, with Movie oriented songs, 6925 USB.  Excellent audio and signal here in the Mojave Desert, California, USA.

ID at 0210 UTC.


Un IDed so far with music on 6955 USB.  Started at 0358 UTC.  About S6 into the Mojave Desert, not real strong, but music is copiable.  A voice ID might be hard to pull out if one ever happens.

0409 UTC "Too Shy"  Kajagoogoo
0412 UTC "Come Dancing"  The Kinks
0416 UTC ID, but I missed it, will have to pull out of the recording later
0416 UTC Not sure, but might be "The Impression I get" by the Mighty Mighty Bosstones
0419 UTC Renegade Radio ID
0420 UTC "Come as you Are"  Nirvana


About 0151 UTC I noticed a dasher on 9050 kHz.  This was a one second dasher that repeated every 14 seconds (1.0 x 14.0).  Looking for other frequencies I found none.  It went off air at 0158 UTC.

At 0207 UTC I noticed another dasher on 4450 kHz.  This one was a one second dash every 7 seconds (1.0 x 7.0).  I found three other frequencies, making 4 total, 4450, 7700, 10575, and 13385 kHz.  The dashes sequenced low to high.  However, since I only found 4 freqs there may have been 3 more outstanding.  These ended at 0248 UTC.

At 0249 UTC 9050 was again active with a dasher, a one second dash each 7 seconds (1.0 x 7.0).  Looking for other freqs revealed 6420 kHz also active, the pulses cycled low to high, first 6420 then 9050 kHz.  This filled only 2 of the possible 7 time slots, so there may have been other frequencies unfound.  These dashes ended at 0313 UTC.

Because of the sequencing through the freqs, and the reuse of some of the old frequencies, I think this might be related to the network I call “Pips”, even though I have not seen this specific pulse width and spacing before.

So far UNIDed on 6925 USB, if I had to guess from the transmitter I would say it is Red Mercury Labs.  Signal came on air at 0247 UTC.  At first I thought it was RML, but after a few songs it became pretty clear it probably was not.

Signal is running S8 or a little better.

0256 UTC, Sonny and Cher, "A Cowboys Work is Never Done"
0301 UTC, The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly theme...seems to be a themed show, maybe not RML, still looks like it though
0305 UTC, maybe Soft Cell, "Meet Murder my Angel", not sure though, digging for that one
0309 UTC, Elvis "Devil in Disguise"
0312 UTC, Johnny Rivers, "Poor Side of Town", really does not seem like RML music, but I like it ;)
0315 UTC, "White Room", I think Joel Grey, but not sure
0317 UTC, some kind of theme and possible ID but I missed it
0318 UTC, Paul Revere and the Raiders, "Kicks"
0322 UTC, Vikki Carr, "It Must be Him"       Possible Movie connections?
0323 UTC, Stones, "Get Off Of My Cloud"

Through the transmission the low end has faded, now getting pretty tinny.  Also fading, at 0326 is only S5.

0326 UTC, Gerry and the Pacemakers, "Ferry Cross the Mersey"
0329 UTC, new song, but faded low enough I can't make it out
0336 UTC, Gene Pitney, "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance".  Signal is so weak I am only getting a few words.
0339 UTC, ID and Email, but far too weak to make them out

0342 UTC, Off, I never did get an ID, although I think one was sent 4 or 5 times.


Other / Pips network up, multiple freqs, 2152 UTC, Aug 26, 2013
« on: August 26, 2013, 2227 UTC »
Pips netowrk is up on multiple freqs, looks like pretty much the same freqs as last go round.

I am in and out of the house, no time to list freqs now, but made recording 4000 to 26000 kHz, so will grab them later.

See this thread for possible frequencies : http://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,12002.0.html

Blue Ocean Radio with his new interval signal at 0135 UTC on 6940 USB, August 24, 2013.  BOR ID at 0139z.  About S6 here, but it is stillv ery early.  Audio is good and solid 100% copy.


(edit)  Shifted to 6930 kHz at 0206 UTC.

No ID heard yet, 6935 USB, August 23, 2013, started about 0310 or so.

Sounds like a few BOC cuts about 0318.  Audio also might be Red Mercury Labs.


(edit)  Changed freq in the subject line to 6935 U, where the station was all the time.  Maybe I am the one who should be on meds Dr.

(edit 2)  Station off air at 0343z, back on at 0349z, and it is RML ;)

(edit 3)  The Highwaymen song at 0439 was great.  I have that on vinyl aroundhere someplace.

Mysterious Mystic Radio with a nice signal into here this evening, 10 to 20 over S9.  Audio was overdriven a bit in the beginning, but then seems to have cleared up.  Gave a Blue Ridge Summit, PA mail address for QSL.


HF Beacons / Dasher, about 29351.5 kHz, July 26, 2013, 2015 UTC
« on: July 27, 2013, 1506 UTC »
Ran across a new, to me, dasher yesterday morning, actually two of them close together.  The second, and stronger of the two, was on about 29351.5 kHz, with pronounced drift.

July 26, 2013, 2015 UTC.  29351.5 kHz, with a steady drift downwards.  About one dash each 800 msec, or about 75 per minute.  Dash length is approximately 275 msec but was difficult to tell length because of the severe sag on the dash, hard to tell exactly when it starts.  Bearing to the source appears to be east north east.

July 26, 2013, 2015 UTC.  29341 kHz, pretty stable and right on.  About one dash per second, or 60 per minute.  Dash length is approximately 350 msec.  There was pronounced fading on the signal and it was right in my noise floor, occasionally becoming audible.  Bearing to the source appears to be east north east.

I think this is a related network to what jFarley and I were talking about earlier, probably the same network in fact, but acting a bit different.

Currently there is a network of multiple frequencies carrying dashes 1.5 seconds long and sent every 10.5 seconds.  I first noticed this network about 0235 UTC, June 16, 2013.  Since that time it has changed frequencies three times.

First set, 0235 to 0252 UTC:

Second set, 0254 to 0342 UTC:

Third set, 0343 to 0430

Fourth set, starting 0430 until now (0510 UTC):

The frequencies appear to be transmitting sequentially, one after the other.  I believe there is more than one network involved.

If you do the math a 1.5 sec pulse in 10.5 seconds means a maximum of 7 time slots, or frequencies.  But n the third and forth set of freqs there are more than 7 frequencies.  And yes, in each set I could find two frequencies that were coincident in time.  And also I found some time slots not filled, indicating I probably missed some frequencies.

I have seen this 1.5 sec dash in a 10.5 second cycle in the past, but never got to watch it for so long.  Judging by propagation on several frequencies and on beam headings there are at least two sources out there, and it appears as if each source might, maybe, be on a different frequency set in this mode.
