The 6950 transmission seems to be gone, at 2130z.

Its gone now (2321Z) too, and the one around 15020. Was there earlier today (the single tone, not the RTTY).

I liked the music from that film. Found interesting that a pirate had a band playing live. Maybe that was some artistic license of the filmmaker, but if real, that was awesome.

Watched that other film you posted at the end... got a good laugh when the one guy was DF'ing the station with a regular portable radio for a few minutes in the middle of the road, then they drove away and nailed the op before that first song was done.

The remotes that I connect to are in Italy, SE Germany, & Austria, which give the best chance of hearing the Croats/Serbs/Greeks. Although as you say, not too hard hearing the Greeks. Was surprised when reading the link of pirates that Radio 811 runs 36kW into a full size 180m dipole.

Greek would seem consistent with what I heard on 1690... lots of Greek music.

With these guys would pop onto SW a bit more so have a chance of hearing them here w/o using a remote, even though the other pirates from the northern part of Europe have a hard time getting here on the upper bands (15 MHz and higher). Never heard any of the guys around 6300.

But, if the signal doesn't come here, then may have to go to the signal... a nice vacation to Croatia would be just what the doctor ordered.

Thanks for posting this. Enjoyed the Croatian film, but wish I could speak Croatian.

Last winter & spring, I had connected to remote receivers over in the region and found a bunch of pirates (no idea which ones) and enjoyed the broadcasts.

Hearing a bunch of them now from a remote in Italy. One of the pirates that I remember is currently on 1690 kHz. Has a distinctive voice & usually background noise when he's talking. Mostly plays music, but seems to talk over it a lot and cut it off so he can talk.

Last winter, he was talking with another guy on the air and it sounded like the other guy was on the other end of an FM two-way radio with the op was putting the mic near the speaker. Couldn't tell if the other guy was listening to the MW signal or they were both chatting via the two-way radio.

Our new friend around 6950 is now just a single tone.

Noticed a little while ago that a new RTTY station showed up around 15020. That one is now also currently a single.

Perhaps that one and the one in 43m are related?

Complete nothing here.

I e-mailed them letting them know I was hearing them - this was before the signal fell into the bottom of the lake, though I stayed tuned in - and they answered!  Apparently, they're going to be continuing transmissions to North America at the weekends through the winter.  Yay!  Skeezix, I thought you'd especially appreciate hearing that.  I know you and I were the ones definitely looking for KBC last week when they had transmitter problems. 

That loud annoying whistle was Radio Republica's signal, apparently; it quit when 9490 signed off.  Unfortunately, that was only a minute or two before KBC went too!  Darnit! 

Very happy to hear they'll be back. I heard them reading some items of interest, but it was too weak and missed almost all of it. And was waiting last week for the transmission that never came. But, that's the way it goes. They're making it up by showing up all winter.  :)

It was indeed R Republica's stupid signal and could clearly see the spurs in the SDR waterfall. They came on clean, but after a couple of minutes, the spurs showed up and stayed until they dropped carrier.

During the mess, switched to sync-AM/USB and brought the filter in to 3.5 kHz and that cleared out the noise. Unfortunately, most of the signal too. After Republica went off, put it back to sync-AM/DSB and 11 kHz and it sounded fine, although weak.

Hopefully it was just poor conditions last night that would explain the weaker signal than last time. I'll definitely be around next weekend for them.

1524Z 15411 S- Varies from in the noise to just above the noise with audible audio.

General Radio Discussion / Re: can you help me identify these sounds
« on: November 04, 2012, 0249 UTC »
That was my first time evar posting on this forum. I am so intensley happy that I finally have people I can ask questions to! I'm such an amateur though, that even half the stuff you guys posted is a total mystery to me but I look forward to learning more.

This is probably a dumb question, but how and where did you guys learn all this stuff? What's a good resource for newbies who aren't very smart but are completely fascinated by radio?

I'm just using a Grundig G3 world traveller so obviously my range and capabilities are going to be limited.

I third what Fansome & Beerus said.

The big thing is to listen & research.
