With oldies and get this...announcements!  Weak copy with possible mentions of "West Rockingham", but not 100% clear.  Slogan heard was "Your station for great music and great memories, you'll always find them right here on the community radio network.." with mentions of an FM frequency and "AM 17-10".

Audio clip here, I would like to clear up the "West Rockingham" ID if someone has better ears than me:  https://youtu.be/GWM2snVbMmU

Hearing music here to my south, doesn't seem to match Radio Reten Lo Que Tienes, R&B music & oldies.  Anyone else?

0239z: Daft Punk - Get Lucky

I'm receiving a carrier right now in Michigan with perhaps a little imaginary audio on peaks.  When checking a remote in Italy, there's a pirate playing music on this frequency, perhaps from the Balkans?  You guys near the east coast might have a better shot at it.

Another confirmation that we are approaching the solar minimum: here's Greenland on 720 as heard from Michigan a few nights ago under co-channel blaster WGN:

I've been noticing a carrier the last few nights on 1709.83 so I started checking various remotes on the Kiwi network.  My search led me to Argentina where one of the receivers had a station label on 1710 for a "Radio Selva".  Looking closer, the station on the Kiwi remote is right on 1709.83, the same as the carrier I'm seeing here in Michigan on my DKAZ pointed due south.  Such DX from deep South America isn't exactly common here, unless conditions go very auroral, but there are no signs of such conditions elsewhere on the band right now.

Radio Selva's audio stream: https://amselva1710.wixsite.com/envivo

Buenos Aires remote that had the best copy on the station: http://kiwisdr.gastonet.com:8073/

The carrier was pretty strong tonight at local sunset, but fading in and out rapidly.  I was unable to dredge up any audio to confirm it was Selva.

Anyone else seeing or hearing this mystery carrier or know anything about this station?

Conditions have been picking up here for early morning "down under" reception.  Weak carriers have been turning into weak audio on some frequencies.  2RN was a new one for the log book this morning:

576 2RN Sydney peaking from 11:07 to 11:19 UTC with very faint music. Confirmed 2RN against an online receiver near Sydney.  Distance is 9,345 miles (15,048 km) from transmitter to my backyard BOG array.

585 UNID carrier peaking to trace audio at 11:21 UTC with OM talking in heavy domestic slop, too poor to discern any words.

702 2BL Sydney peaking at 11:07 UTC with DU accented talk // to local remote SDR.

Plus a slew of weaker carriers noted on most 9 kHz channels across the whole band.

Perseus SDR + phased BOG array oriented towards the southwest, from Western Michigan

Jalisco Radio, a new one for me.  Their 6-note doorbell chime after the Mexican National Anthem gives this one away and really jumps out of the noise:


Heard on the Southwest phased BOGs at sunrise, 1,844 miles.

MW Loggings / Michigan auroral logs: Aug.26th, 2018
« on: August 27, 2018, 2336 UTC »
Instead of chasing Pacific carriers Sunday morning on the western BOGs, I found myself scrambling in the dark to get temporary feedlines setup from the shack to the South DKAZ to take advantage of the auroral conditions.  With just a few minutes to spare, I managed to kickoff a spectrum recording covering the 7am / 11:00 UTC TOH.  Later review exposed a pipeline into Texas including several new TX logs.

Receiver: Microtelecom Perseus SDR

Antenna: 117 FT D-KAZ remotely terminated and reversible aimed North/South

0230 UTC: 1089 Talksport, UK fair at times with sports talk and slight echo heard on signal peaks (they run multiple transmitters on the channel).  Relog but interesting to hear Trans-Atlantic stuff during the summer months.

0924 UTC: 1550 KRPI Ferndale, WA. over/under CBEF with South Asian chanting.  This one really stands out and easy to parallel against their webstream.  Relog but nice to hear again, especially in early August!

Both heard while testing the remote terminated D-KAZ loop which I just rebuilt.  Looks like things are working!

Beach Boys "409" at 0155z.  Weaker signal tonight, S4-S5.  Seems to be same station that I've logged here before airing the same oldies playlist w/o announcements.

Someone with music causing interference to X-FM up on 4070.

AM carrier with some weak music under X-FM's upper sideband.  Guitar solo, but just barely there.

EDIT: disappeared seconds after I posted this.
