I didn't hear the station coming on at first. Playing something from zombie show. Then music.
Strong signal, 10 over 9 some fading, 55444.
Guess I'll miss the rest; gotta run.

A USB signal with highly distorted audio showed up for half a minute. Someone trying to sing the melodic notes from "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind," then said something unintelligible, then gone.

Back again briefly at 0246.

I've been sitting here listening to WWVH on 10 MHz since 0430Z. It's now 0455. It sounds like someone is jamming them. Not much they can do about it now, I suppose.

0230 Don't think it's Renegade Radio as signal has completely different audio quality and not as strong. 44434. Came up with song I don't recognize, no ID at start.
0234 Talk about wasn't planning a transmission until now but no ID. I think this is the station that called Renegade Radio after its transmission.
0235 Another song I don't know
0240 More talk, doesn't feel the magic tonight, ID Magic Shortwave Radio. Signal is quite good and copyable here and I'm sure that was given as an ID.
0246 Wrap-up and off.

Thanks Magic Shortwave Radio! I hope you're feeling more of the magic next time.

0150 Battle Of New Orleans, Little Johnny Horton. Obviously a theme here!
0153 Whispering Pines, Little Johnny Horton

0158 Back on. The Mansion You Stole, Johnny Horton
0202 Renegade Radio ID! Shoutout to me and other HFU posters here. Says testing with bad sound card, hum problem. Wasn't intending to do broadcast but will continue now with Johnny Horton songs.

Can just barely make out a voice and music, really weak, noise is S5, signal is weaker

HF Beacons / 13 MHz beacons
« on: March 31, 2012, 1558 UTC »
I've been hearing various things in the vicinity of 13555. Right now I am hearing a "5 5 5" station on 13557.00 plus or minus. It's actually sending "dit ditditditdit" with a very slight pause between the first dit and the following ones, not long enough to be considered a character spacing. Bu I guess this is the "EH" beacon listed in several places.

On 13557.10 there is another ditter sending a single dit about every 10 seconds. It is drifting up and down quite a bit, varying from 13557.05 to 13557.15 kHz.

I listened for the ditters I heard a while back on 13559.83 but there are several polytone signals taking over that frequency range right now.

I don't hear it now but a few days ago I heard the "Squarer" on 13555.53. It changes frequency up and down 4 Hz every 10 seconds. It is run by Dex W4DEX.

At 2245Z the W4DEX "Squarer" is coming in quite well. That 4 Hz shift is barely detectable by ear but shows up nicely on Spectrum Lab.

I thought this was still Bust A Nut radio but it's on USB. Playing music. Lots of static, difficult to make out. Signal 24232.

0253 There was an ID in there but I couldn't make it out.
0302 Male voice, can't make out what he's saying.
0310 Static is overpowering. Think it's still in there but can't tell.
0315 Signal came up a bit, could hear voices, but couldn't tell what they were saying.
