Have been checking lately for Radio Uganda reportedly re-activating 4976.  Noted a carrier there tonight above the usual LA on 4975 with a good opening to E Africa.
No audio heard, although noted carrier up to S7 at times.

On with EDM show.  0252 BBC WS theme, "This is not the BBC", RJI ID.

Good signal with very deep fades to the noise tonight.

First noted weak carrier in waterfall 0330; built until 0400 then faded.  Nice SRE peak at 0410-0420 with OM talk in language which I could not definitely ID as Lingala.  Quick fade out after 0430.  First solid audio from this here this season.  Props look promising for the next few nights?

11Jan13  In with a stunning S4 carrier peak around 0420.  Doodley squat audio.

15Jan13 Again a nice quick enhancement peak to S4 around 0425.  Again not a trace of audio.

18Jan13 Peaking as noted to S4 without a trace of audio.

Recorder/Live Catch

0115 May have come on about this time
0122 Came home to find some unid music ( ethereal sounding, and kind of cool coming out of the noise) playing
0125 RML ID and talk
0127 73 and off

Just above the noise here.
Thanks RML!

Noted CW here at weak to fair level.  Pretty sure it contained "VVV DE BOR"

From the Signal Strength History, it looks like the times represent fade in and fade out times rather that sign on/off, but not sure.

1251 unid mx
1302 Deep Purple - "Highway Star"
1315 unid mellow YL vocal
1318 Eagles - "Take It to the Limit"
1323 "Sounds of Silence" - can't tell if this was S&G or a cover
1327 apparent fade out; no ID was heard

Very weak with deep fades and pesc QRM.
Thanks for the show!

0132 OM talking here in very low deliberate voice which sounded muffled and hard to understand

0139 carrier off, then on in a bit and whistling (ascending scale)
0140 off

About an S5 on an S4 floor, music at good level, mike audio a bit less so

A very short tx w/ OM saying "44333...44333" at around S5 here then off.

IIRC, someone posted something similar just a while back?

I might have been thinking of this:    http://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,9209.0.html

Hearing some CW here in the noise.  Haven't done a full decode but I believe I am hearing "DE BOR" in part.

1419 "This is Blue Ocean Radio testing, from the west coast of North America" at better level.
1443 CW followed by a voice ID; S6 on an S2 floor

Thanks BOR!

Recorder Catch on 6925USB

I have something here continuously between these times.  I seem to have been severely offtuned, and cannot make much of it.  Right down at the noise which was quite considerable this AM, possibly due to thousands of newly acquired toys and gadgets being fired up under trees here in my hood.
