Strong here too at 2130Z. S9+20. Great audio.

Still going strong at 2225Z. Some QSB now and then. Playing quite a range of music. I heard a Jeff Beck song a while ago and they just played Tom Jones "It's Not Unusual."

Just went QRT at 2256Z. Thanks for the show, Family Radio!

Who's next on frequency?  8)

"This is ... Radio" with echo effect on voice, said about a dozen times. Weak here, I couldn't make out what they were saying. I only heard an ID, then gone, no program.

The same station is now (0050Z) on 6925.0. It is really weak here, USB, maybe S5. I heard a repetitive "Radio ___" but couldn't make out the blank.

0054Z Female voice W___  ___ Radio but still can't make it out here.

0058 I hear the "White Punks On Dope" now.

0100 Ad for Job rolling papers and WPOD ID.  :)

0110 Off. Thanks for the show!

HF Beacons / Listening for beacons 30 Jan 2013
« on: January 30, 2013, 1916 UTC »
Last night I woke up at 5 am (1100Z) and couldn't get back to sleep, so I listened for all the beacons I know of in the range 4060 to 8000 MHz. I did not hear a single one. For a while I had a slight hint of something showing up on 4079.6 on spectrum display but I could not hear the CW of the TMP beacon.

I guess it was just a bad night propagation-wise? Has the whole season been poor? I haven't spent a lot of time listening for these beacons this winter but I've tuned around every couple weeks and didn't hear anything then, either.

I've been hearing this Russian beacon for about an hour now. It seemed to peak at around 0430Z but still there at 0500Z. Signal was a good S5, now in and out of the noise around S2 average.

Interesting, the original list included some frequencies in the 40 meter ham band. Are those still active? Will give a listen this evening.

I got one too. I just posted it in the QSL section. Maybe I shouldn't have done that. It's a beautiful card, anyway!

Not a QSL, but I received a Christmas e-card from Radio Ronin Shortwave. Very cool! Thanks!

I haven't heard this station before. I guess it wasn't GORU Ocean Radio, but BOR Blue Ocean Radio. Signals not so great here during their broadcast.

At least that's what I think they ID'ed as. Signal not terribly strong, lots of QSB, 34333. Playing theme from 2001: Space Odyssey (Also Sprach Zarathustra) with ID at 0117Z.

Well ... what did it say?

740 feet ASL here. Average for this area is about 650. My favorite hill for amateur radio VHF/UHF/microwave hilltopping, about 45 miles from home, is at 987 feet ASL.
