Thanks for the info... got to get this one.

In Minneapolis, heard a rap station on 87.9 MHz from 1235Z until it went abruptly off at 1239Z. Freq is usually quiet.

Figure its a pirate as the lyrics in the song would result in a fine if on a legal station.

Its KC9GNK's beacon in Madison:

Not hearing it here at 0302Z.

He also has one on 1704.3 kHz CW.

More on the HiFER beacons:

Voice of Korea (DPRK) on 11710 kHz this morning at 1235Z. SINPO = 45333. Pretty decent signal and would've been better if the ignition noise wasn't interfering.

Also picking them up on 11735 kHz. 25332. Nothing heard on 15180 nor 13650.

Didn't know the LEDs pumped out the RFI, knew the CFLs do. Good to know. 

Don't have any of them here... CFLs are banned from my house forever and LEDs just made the list (until they prove that they're quiet).

People will probably complain about my incandescents, then I'll turn on my old tube rigs...  ;D

Nice & strong this time, but boy, that sure does sound erratic.

Not sure what it could be without the AM carrier. Its not a VOR or other normal navaid as they don't transmit like that (unless its broken). Navaids  transmit in AM with MCW with a two to four letter ID at a regular interval and not too fast. Your thing is nothing like that at all.

Perhaps some spur from something or maybe some sort of low power telemetry. Or a spy! (that needs to go back to radio class).

Can you hear this all the time?

Also, the VHF navaids (108-118) are horizontally polarized. The VHF comms (118-137) are vertically polarized.

In the second recording, it sounds like a VOR with voice weather broadcasts. You can barely hear the ID in the background and unless I heard incorrectly, its identifying as DQN, so that's the Dayton VOR/DME.

In the first recording, what mode do you have the receiver set to? If CW/SSB, set it to AM and see if that's any better. I can't make out anything in the recording. It does not sound like a normal ILS nor VOR transmission. The navaids (VOR, ILS, NDB) are all AM with MCW for ID.

I had some slight hopes of being nominated for the post, but I don't think he got my email.


Seize the position and run the Jolly Roger up the flagpoles at the FCC.

There are a few ILS localizers somewhat in the area (assuming you're in Troy) that are on 108.75 MHz:
I-UNI  Albany, OH
I-GWB Auburn, IN
I-GYY  Gary, IN

Dayton has a VOR/DME on 114.5 MHz and its ID is DQN.

Can you make a couple of recordings and post them?

Can't wait for more, esp if you can get some afternoon drive-time broadcasts into the upper midwest.  ;D

The Shogun of the Shortwaves will return after this brief intermission. Please stand by.
