Jarl: Thanks a million for the Banda Aceh link. Chillingly beautiful.

Great thread, ditto on HCJB  and Radio Nederland (or, how much great content can you cram into one hour on SW), both of them could frequently be simply _great_, and a necessary solace during the Clinton/Bush II eras. I must also mention the quirky, leftist Radio for Peace International, (do I have that right?), from Costa Rica in English for many hours at a time, night after night. I don't remember the drama of how they were shut down. Compared to today's internet news, their content today might seem tame, but in the day you wouldn't normally hear that stuff anywhere else. Of course, my real favorite is KIPM, but that doesn't count. Just pulled out a gorgeous glossy QSL from more than 10 years ago. What a trip, Mr. Maxwell. People intrigued beautiful girls with your station, and lived happily ever after, 'tis true. Again, killer thread, looking forward to more stories. I'd love to see some of these stations rise from the dead.

Pigmeat and K: The Ham wars continue. There was a guy playing music in the 3840 region last night, and some other ham got so pissed off he gave out (to the world) (allegedly) this guy's phone number, twice! I suppose that's one way of dealing with ops like Pigmeat mentioned. I couldn't believe it. I expect mucho activity in this region for the rest of the year. The area code was Californian, I believe. The things we hear on the west coast late at night on Halloween. Good thing too, as 6925 was buried in static junk the entire evening.  :-\

Right. To know Havana Moon, you have to go back so far to the time of another Harry, Helms (both sadly RIP AFAIK), and all those old ACE newsletters, which I used to have next to my file of VOL/KIPM/Radio Airplane (the latter really dates me) QSLs... I think I got rid of most ACE issues long ago, sadly. Never again throw away that which will never be again... not all of it, anyway. I used to enjoy contributing to Helms' column. Back to topic: Never seen the movie. I know, not helpful.  ;D

Very interesting. I heard some unusual chatter on this frequency the other day, but didn't copy or log it. I assumed it was the usual EAMs. Monitoring now at 2152z; Phonetic calls/requests but not usual EAM format. Hmmmm.

Thanks for the tip, OSR!

 ;D This is a serious issue. Aside from the B. Stair numbers station, the Sage of Walterboro has been way over the frequency allocation of any sane society for several decades now. I wish G24 luck!

Pigmeat and Token, thanks so much for your input. Helps me understand.... a helluva lot. Cheers!

I'm hearing it really loud here...heavy metal music, and a new wave thing starting at 0737. No ID yet. S8 on the ICF2010 here in AZ. Chanting Charles Manson and Jesus Christ over synth beat.

Someone playing "Bad Moon Rising" at 0157 UTC 10/26, i.e. local time right now. I wonder at what point this turns from ham misbehavior to pirate?  ;D

Thanks for the responses, guys. The craziness of certain ops of all nationalities and persuasions is often what makes this hobby so unique and interesting... You want the underbelly of USA (or any other) society? You got it!  Anthropologists ignore these phenomena at their peril.

Am I just  a newbie to this, or is 3840.2 a frequency out of control tonight? Is this the usual?
A bunch of ranting, arguing, fighting, music, profanity, etc., it's not exactly difficult to record this to demonstrate insanity in real time.
It sounds like some crazy people stuck in an asylum together.

Started with very strong carrier around 0820 and one just had that feeling that it was our former V02 friends...  Started with a bunch of different numbers for a few minutes, then into numbers with data transmissions. Pause/stop at 0850, still with strong carrier. Carrier off at 0856.

Music still on here but fading in and out heavily and I can't recognize the songs. I didn't hear the cw earlier.

Started with what sounded like Motown style music for a song or two, then nothing but data bursts almost like the old Russian woodpecker every few minutes. Music was very hard to copy here in AZ due to QRN... lots of noise out here tonight...... the sound bursts are quite loud. Anyone else hearing this? Music started again at 0346... s7 or so, much better signal.
