10/11 meters / Re: SSTV 27700 USB 30 Sep 2014

I didn't receive those, but I captured a few others. Last I checked, a couple of guys with Jamaican accents were talking on 27700 LSB

Really nice signal tonight--much better than the last time I heard RR. Rush "Tom Sawyer" @0122.
Thanks for the show!

Thanks for the tip! Fair signal here. Would be more copyable, but a really strong t-storm just passed through.
A mention of "Yahweh" and I think the op is talking about sacrifices. Love how this station operates all over the SWBC bands.

Excellent signal with an old-time radio show. Nice to hear this one back!
Thanks for the show!

Decent signal with "Jumpin' Jack Flash" & "Brown Sugar."
Thanks for the show!

For Sale / Wanted / Barter / Some FT-243 Crystals for sale
« on: August 03, 2014, 2230 UTC »
$5 apiece + $3 shipping. I checked these out on an oscillator to see the frequency and to verify that the crystals work. First is the freq. listed on the case, then the approximate tested frequency (results may vary):

6925 (6925.2)
6925 (6925.7)
6950 (6949.2)
6950 (6949.8 )
6950 (6950.1)
6875 (6874.2)
6875 (6874.8 )
7525 (doubled to 15051.1)
7525 (doubled to 15051.2)

BTW, amateur transmitters will double the frequencies of crystals, but the standard homebrew ones will not
If you're interested, send an e-mail to me.

At 1146, I have a carrier here. I just got a bit of audio and think it's still Cool AM
Thanks for the show!

BTW, I left the radio/decoder on 27700 kHz all day yesterday and didn't receive anything

With this type of operation (24/7, fixed location, in expensive facilities), you want to be as squeaky clean as possible. You're risking a lot of money and resources when there are legal ways to get what you need.

The carrier-current suggestion is a good idea. Chances are good that you could cover the town this way.

Another suggestion, if carrier current doesn't work or if you still aren't covering all of the town. If you're putting this much into the station, you should be able to upload the audio to the Internet, have a second part-15 transmitter on the same frequency on the opposite side of town and feed both transmitters from the Internet audio feed so that the audio is synched. So long as the transmitters are on exactly the same frequency, the listening transition from the one transmitter to the next should be seamless.

I heard a part-15 station running a small network of transmitters (3, I think) with this general method. I think I heard it across about 10 miles. Also (for those thinking "sure, it was legal . . ."), I talked to a radio engineer who knows this guy. He said he's neurotic about being legal and has requested that FCC agents inspect everything numerous times. They've checked it at least a couple of times & it's always within legal limits.

It sounds like you're off to a great start (and community support for) to your station. Hope it continues to go well!

Decent signal here in heavy static crashes with bits of different music genres, announcements, etc. On & off the air a lot. A couple different announcements in Spanish. I'm thinking this is a pescadore broadcast

Thanks for the tip!

Thunderstorm crashes are making this difficult, but the signal is good for this time of day. I'm hoping to find my headphone adapter so that I can dig out some details from the noise
Thanks for the show!

Not sure how it's been for Chris, but the propagation's been really bad for me. I've left the radio on 27700 kHz USB at least a dozen different days, but I haven't gotten any legible images in a few months

Nice signal with big band music, including "Thanks for the Memories" & "Let's Go Slumming." I've heard four songs so far & no IDs at the breaks.
ID of Germany Calling, taken from the WWII-era broadcasts from the DJx stations. Not sure if this is the pirate Germany Calling or if someone else is reusing those IDs. In the past, the Germany Calling pirate had only used 6940 kHz and AM, not this freq or mode.

Thanks for the show!

I've tuned in a number of different days and have never heard anything resembling an ID

0340 UTC: Colgate toothpaste ad & A Day in the Life Of Dennis Day show. Really nice signal again, like it was a couple of weeks ago

Nice catch, DaveJV! Old time radio comedy broadcast, with audience laughter & musical breaks between segments. My guess is that it's the OTR Unid, moved here from 6770. But, of course, someone could also test with OTR shows to make DXers believe that it's the OTR unid  :)
