Checked online to see if anyone was on & ran upstairs in time to catch the end of Diarrhea Jones talking about his dependable pants. Garage rock, Vox ad, ending talk with Peter Ivers, then funeral dirge. WEAK IDs throughout. Really great combo of entertaining show & huge signal...about S9+20 here. Thanks much to all involved!

Just turned on the radio, heard a quick computer ID, then a bit of country music, & off. Probably about a total of 10-15 seconds. Nice signal. Not sure if it was USB or AM (and I was fortunate enough to have it tuned right on the carrier)?

Thanks for the show!

Shortwave Pirate / LXU (Phonetic letters): 6925U, 2/16, 0001
« on: February 16, 2012, 1501 UTC »
I didn't write down all of the letter groups this time, but a number of them were the same as from the last ULX transmission. Not sure if it was the same transmission otherwise. And, someone is having fun with the ID. This time is was announced as LXU four times before signoff.

Pretty good sig & I have a recording if the op is interested

Please QSL...

In honor of WEAK, I'm listening to his old shows on Sealord's site:

Thanks to both!

Also caught this on the recorder with the R8...

Everything that I heard matches what Ragnar reported around 1400 on FRN, but the "?" are fadeouts here.

This is for the first broadcast:

LXU LXU LXU LXU NRS GJK VYM IIC OQT TXZ AEG QPN PCD YZF EIO UVK JJR VVT AVZ ??U LGC ?SP ART QQG DHS UMH S?E MJC ULX ULX ULX ULX

This was on at 2224:

LXU LXU LXU LXU NRS GJK VYM IIC OQT TXZ AEG QPN PCD YZF EIO UVK JJR VVT AVZ MKU LGC XSP ART QQG DHS UMH SXE MJC ULX ULX ULX ULX

On again around 2248 with same message:

LXU LXU LXU LXU NRS GJK VYM IIC OQT TXZ AEG QPN PCD YZF EIO UVK JJR VVT AVZ MKU LGC XSP ART QQG DHS UMH SXE MJC ULX ULX ULX ULX

It is a human announcer not at computer voice, but it's a prerecorded message. Also, interesting that between "OPN & PCD," he pronounced it "Pa-Pa" in "OPN," but "Papa" in "PCD"

Good sig & I have recordings if the op is interested

Please QSL...

Caught on recorder with the R8 set to 6925U--show was off 6925, so mostly unintelligible. On with ID repeated three times, into a live song. Cut after a few seconds, a few seconds of dead air, then into another song. Can hear skits & songs, but only the IDs are intelligible. Strong signal here. Seems like the ID was repeated three times at every ID break "This is Big Boobs Radio [two syllables]" Sounded like the Green Acres theme at one point between skits. Faded out before QRT.

Thanks for the show & please QSL, if you do that sort of thing

Thanks for the article. This looks like a fun project. Now if my antenna supports would start growing faster...

BTW, some people don't use baluns with this antenna:

S9 signal here with deep fades. Nice signal. on 6238.something. Good Monkey show. Tuned in at 2302 and heard "I'm a good Monkey"s by Sealord, Grasscutter, Sunshine, WEAK Radio, Cosmicdebris, Kracker, Sycko, & others.

Thanks for the show!

Thanks, Sealord! I tuned in at 0413 & started recording, but I was mostly away from the receiver. The signal was weak in loud static crashes. Listening to what I think is "Song Remains the Same" right now, but it is NOT easy to identify. It's like July static levels.

Thanks for the show!

General Radio Discussion / Re: Recognize this noise?

It's more "ragged" sounding than the types of power-related noise that I get. Good luck getting that noise eliminated!

OK, listened to this on headphones. It was on for 34 min, with a QRT about 0759 UTC. There was no dead air. The sig was AM and somewhat off 6925 because I had the receiver on 6925.00 USB. I had a deep het from being mistuned. When listening on the old laptop, I couldn't hear the het & mistook this for dead air. That het also made for 34 min. of unpleasant listening. Programming was all house music, including Green Velvet "La La Land" at 0735. I think I heard an announcement of some sort at 0745, but I really couldn't hear much.

It didn't sound like either WMPR or Radio 2012 Int'l, The last song sounded like something those 2 stns would play. My best guess is Liquid Radio, but I really don't know.

Thanks to everyone who sent in their Wolverine SSTV pics & offered help.

I've started sending entries to stations for info verification. I've gotten bouncebacks from:

Chamberpot Radio
College Bowl Radio
Grasscutter Radio
Old Turkey Radio
Shrunken Head Radio

If there are new e-mail addresses for these stations or if the station operator is out there and would like to review the entry, just let me know.

Thanks much & have a great day!

Caught this last night one the recorder. Nice signal, but I had the R8 in USB & the broadcast was in AM. On for about 20 min or so, probably testing because there's a lot of dead air. I don't have time to listen to the file right now, but I plan to go through it & see if there are any IDs. Seemed to strong to be from Europe, but you never know  :)

THanks for the show!
Andrew
