« on: December 07, 2015, 0247 UTC »
I continue to be impressed with the D-KAZ, and more proof here.  These are all new logs that were never heard here before with the NE/SW phased BOGs.  Working the North and South directions has added tons of new stations to the log book:

MW Harmonics:

2640 (880x3) WIJR Highland, IL. - 1307 UTC 11/27/2015 - Intermittent harmonic perfectly matching WIJR's live webstream.  Not a peep of WIJR heard here on 880 during this, which I need for the log!

I'm actually hearing audible music tonight from this one, and some talk between songs.  That's a first here.  Only present on the North D-KAZ.  Conditions seem very good tonight for DX.

S4 faint but clear with a soothing blues tune at 0611z.  Timberwolf Radio Shortwave ID & email @ 0616z.

I just noticed this one on the waterfall while listening to TCS.  Peaking good at times and then down to just a carrier and back up again.  I'm hearing ads for Chicago businesses along Archer Avenue, weather prediction talk, etc. all indicating a harmonic from W807 "Geo Research Rock Radio" on 1710 kHz.  I've never heard this harmonic before and W807 (on 1710) is generally a weak signal here, so this is a bit of a surprise.  This might offer someone a chance to hear them better vs 1710.

Quote from W807:
we are recognized by NASA, NDGRC, Department of Homeland Security, and the Pentagon. We're using the harmonizing tones in the broadcast AM band to predict certain weather and the geological phenomenon.

MW Loggings / 1710 "CHIM-FM 92.7", nightly
« on: October 27, 2015, 0008 UTC »
Seems to be on continuous since i first logged it last month.  It has been strong at times during peaks, IDing at "CHIM-FM 92.7".  And now the kicker, they seem to be transmitting in FM mode.  Sounds horrible in AM, LSB and USB however on the signal peaks it actually sounds decent while listening in FM mode.  Strange...And nobody else is hearing this one?  I'd sure like to get a second opinion on the mode of operation being used here as FM seems like an odd choice for this frequency.

HF Beacons / UNID 6918 / 6930.5 kHz 1111 UTC 11OC2015
« on: October 11, 2015, 1204 UTC »
I first noticed this last Sunday morning when listening to the breakfast with Boombox show.  Two weak synchronized signals on 6918 and 6930.5 (nominal) producing dashes on the waterfall.  I can't rule out the possibility of some kind of very weak RFI, but I've never seen this before.  I checked several remotes and couldn't reproduce what I see here, but then again none that I checked had the 6940 dasher either.  This seems worthy of posting in the event that someone is testing.  You can also see the 6940 dasher clearly in this screenshot for comparison, which is a bit stronger:

Someone here playing music, fairly consistent signal but badly over-modulated.  Best here in LSB to dodge the IBOC hash from the new 1700 station.  Some announcements between songs but the speech is very difficult to understand due to the poor modulation.  Anyone else hearing this?
