Schedule shows WINB, but no idea what data format this is (if there is data in this mess!).  Pretty constant S4 signal.  Not a (local) noise signal as I was also able to monitor it from one of the MD kiwis......

0102Z update:  hearing some roughly modulated audio now on the kiwi, and audio is improving. Those LSB spikes are gone from the kiwi now but i'm still getting them at my location.

ID presumptive based on short-wave.info schedule.  Great signal into MD this AM.  At least SIO 444....bouncing around between S3 and 4. 

Sounds like techno music of some sort.  background to S3.  lots of static, unfortunately. Occasional CW....maybe "FLZ"?   Hope to hear more of this station, liked the tunes.
2325Z:  getting stronger, marginally.

Rebroadcast of news coverage of the 08 December 1941 joint session of Congress.  Good signal (S4+) and audio but faded to noise at 2110Z

Shortwave Broadcast / WBCQ? 6160 AM 0430 UTC 05 Dec 2021

Schedule says WBCQ or Pyongyang...neither seems right. S3 signal.

0432Z-"Shake your ass" by Blowfly
0435Z-"Portable Radio" by Clout
0438Z-female talking about speaking on the radio w/ male.
0446Z-some odd music mix

Maybe it is WBCQ....the program guide at http://wbcq.com/schedule/ has a more diverse set than I expected...

Equipment / bigger LOG.....
« on: December 04, 2021, 1956 UTC »
Getting ready to embark on a great experiment....expanding my current LOG (~8x10m) quite a bit.  Going to run around the house (driveway crossing be damned) for a 35x20m loop. 

Fingers crossed...if it works i'll be able to move my feed line much much closer to the shack in addition to whatever additional benefits a larger antenna might have.....

Now if i can only find my yard staples....

Shortwave Broadcast / WINB? 9265 AM 1724 UTC 27 NOV 2021

Very weak, mostly just a carrier on the WF with occasional bits of audio.  Tried doing some searches to see if i could eyeball the antenna and, well....it's interesting if I'm looking at the right thing.  The FCC database wasn't much help....anyone know the story here?

EDIT:  that's the feedline...it goes to a rhombic in a nearby field

Was on a road trip in PA and (moderately) surprised to see WMLK’s antenna still standing….

Just purchased a small ultrasonic humidifier for my office since the desert-like humidity levels play havoc with my sinuses.  I was pleasantly surprised that the wall briquette and the device did not hash up my radios....at least the bits of HF, VHF, and UHF I'm currently monitoring. 

That is all!
