Shortwave Broadcast / Yemen 11935khz/Saudi
« on: April 28, 2024, 1852 UTC »
Yemen Radio 11935khz perfectly audible in Alaska at 1825UTC Sun Apr. 27th. There's no buzzing roar thats been present over the last few weeks... that was also present back when they were on 11860.

Some folks think its jamming, which is possible... but Saudi has had 9675/9885/15170/15285 off for over a year...  9675 and 9885 reappeared for 2 or 3 days a few weeks ago and are off again.

Something might be up with Saudi's SW operations. (Yemen's SW signal originates from what is suspected to be Riyadh, Saudi Arabia)

Do you have an audio recording?
No. I can get one though. It's clear on the SDRs though

Never mind, I found it on a different kiwi SDR, but thanks for the quick response. The KB0FX one is too noisy at that frequency to copy much of anything right now. But I figured it out. 14670/2 = 7335, which is a Radio Marti frequency. The jammer has a harmonic. It's not deliberate jamming of CHU, just more sloppiness from Cuba.

I was abotut to say the same... as far as i knwo Cuba has only jammed legit broadcast stations but the jammy jam jammer masheen runs amuck with sporead spectrum action from time to time.

Theyre listed on Eibi almost every 5khz between 11510 and 11580 as Denge Gel, which is the new name for Denge Welat.

In alaska, ive only heard the turkish jammer... sometimes multiple frequencies in one day

Shortwave Broadcast / Re: Cuba Jammer on 6513

Random frequency for Cuba to be jamming but it's on 6513 now (0223 UTC)

The spread spectrum jammy jam jammer masheen has obviously run amuck again, which it's been known to do.

Well hopefully it dies soon too like most of it's Radio Habanana counterparts.

I dont think so.. ive caught them Jamming 9565 2-3 hours after Marti has signed off that frequency.

Note:  This may explain why Peskies are on 6950kHz in the mornings PST

I can almost gaurentee thats not Sound of hop.. China jams them relentlessly.. im not sure anyone in the US, SDr or otherwise, has ever heard them.. and what i never see is anyone verifying it against an SOH strea,m, which im pretty sure they have.

If it sounds like a news format, then its CNR/CRI(CGTN)


This myth is really annoying. Many, many SOH frequencies are not jammed and I hear them regularly here. If it’s on an offset frequency, it’s SOH. Their programming is also easily distinguished from CRI. Trust me, try tuning in on 6900 or 6970 and you will hear them.

I've never bothered with asian languages.. when i run across them here, its going to N or S Korea. China or Japan 90 plus percent of the time, and hardly DX here.

Whats frustrating is people assuming its SOH just because thats whats listed..... and not verifying anything and not posting many program details

Shortwave Broadcast / Reactivated Saudi Transmitters
« on: April 02, 2024, 2008 UTC »
I havent heard 9675 or 9885 in over a year, havent heard 11820/1191.. whatever... in over 2 years.

11820 has been heard on sporadically in the last month or so.

I heard 9675 and 9885 twice since A24 started, but both are missing today.  I havent Heard Yemen, via Riyadh in months.. and a transmitter with a bad hum had been on 11860, the transmitter popped up on 11820 for a bit... Yemen appears to have come bac k on 11935
