Has anyone heard the "V V V" beacon on 7002 kHz for a while? I don't believe I've heard it in a few years now.

Wish I'd looked at this in advance. I would've listened for it.

Storms put a halt in our FD operations from about 9:30 pm CDT to 2 am, when it finally stopped raining, but everyone who was still there had been napping and we didn't feel like firing the generator up again!

OK on 3449 has been loud here in east central Illinois most of the time (S4 or better). I haven't listened for a while but over the winter the TMP beacon was pretty consistent copy in and out of the noise. Sometimes getting up to S4 or S5.

I don't think it was Dead Cat Radio.  I did hear "This is Radio <huge static crash>".


Shortwave Pirate / UNID Station 6940 kHz

I took a break from ham radio Field Day operations last night just before the thunderstorm hit us and heard a station on 6940 AM. This was at 0214Z on June 28.

The station was playing old Shirley Temple songs - Animal Crackers In My Soup, When I Grow Up, etc. I couldn't get an ID.

Statis crashes were horrific. Had to pull the plug at 0220Z before the lightning took out the rig.
