Nothing here, just the same (weak) blank carrier on 6310.0

2250 The blank carrier is stronger now, still no trace of audio around.

2315 still no trace of audio anywhere around 6310, only some unknown very very weak carriers barely above the noise level (Don't if they are real signals or from neighbour's devices)

1632 music, very weak, under storm crashes, DJ, 1838 "Love shack", 1908 some unclear recording
1937 "Fox on the run", maybe a stealth ID, etc...

2228 ELO, W DJ, she gives a clear ID, (so LHH upside down…), more music
2240 pop, 2242 DJ Mandy gives the ID again !!

No sign of skip or fading out soon

2031 Dreadlock holiday, etc
2103 Don't bring me down, 2105 greetings, Radio Victoria, "Tina Tina"

(2206 gone)

Don't be cruel, rock, Red red wine
2103 quick ID, 2119 ID and e-mail, pop, 2125 ID+e-mail, off

Unid at 2006,music
Good signal,  BBR / JT ?

2017 Dutch(?) song, 2020 tango,
2027 cows and horses, then schlager, 2029 "San Francisco"
2032 accordion, 2035 J.Cash
2042 "My way", 2045 off

Only blank carriers, one on 6309,7 V on daytime, another on 6310,0 since 17UTC  (both heard at same time at 1707). Now only the 6310,0 (that was the het yesterday).

Maybe Harmony looking for a new channel? But not found so far.

1713 extra weak, slowly fading up to very weak, much atmos crashes, occ. 'helico' ut.
music and DJ (no copy), could be one of the usual relays or recordings of R. Caroline.
1747 still much weaker than WMR on 5840 AM

1836 not better. (1919 gone)

2056 extra-weak, under the crashes, on 6480.8 kHz

then fading up very very slowly, while also drifting up,

2251 on 6481.2 with maybe greek music (not for tourists), 2257 same,
2307 as I type this : gone

(was already on the air at 1557)
2121 pops, frequents IDs-jingle IDs
2130 full ID with contacts, mentionning MW too (1611 kHz).

Low power, but could make jump from Norway to N. America

Hello Kris,

We heard a real station around 21UTC.

Helicaster often hears a real signal around 03 UTC, and I heard it too about the same time, but extremely weak here. It appears this is not an image frequency, not an intermod in the receiver, but an intermod in the transmitting station.

I take good note of your problems with an RTL dongle SDR, but that's a quite different thing. So far, I don't use any SDR, and I'm not tempted by a low cost RTL dongle, except maybe to play with its native VHF-UHF ranges.

Anyway, the station at 21 UTC should be split from the station at 03 UTC, and that's what I did, just leaving remarks that they were both on 6270 kHz, if by chance we find something more about them.

BTW, the European station on 6270 was identified by JBK, UKdxer.. as R. Joey on Saturday and as R. Verona (I.E. the same op under two aliases) on Sunday.

Well, maybe we could move the discussion about RTL dongles in the SDR section?


1826 music, 1829 IDs (under crashes), very hard to hear for an hour or so.
1933 improving, music, talking in English, 1939 ID as R. Caroline (which avatar?),music
1945 DJ, more music, but ut. like an helicopter

1905 retro music, talking by man: no copy because of high level of crashes
1907 ID by W voice (OK), more music from before WWII, 1910 same ID again
music with typical odlish sounding

2136 going on, 2137 ID, music.
2310 still on the air

Nous les auditeurs français, nous nous attendons à tout moment à entendre un présentateur au débit saccadé et zozotant….

1624 sudden switch on within a show with music and DJ
weak, much atmo crashes, making hard to understand the DJ
1657 ID and e-mail, 1702 ID, very short news, 1703 pop

(Already on at 0730, ID + gmail)

1520 music, usual format, 1609 "Trains and boats and planes"
1638 music, weak het on 6310,0 approx.
1648 same situation

2257 strong here, het seems gone, 2259 ID, music

According to Glenn Hauser (in 2014), it would be an intermodulation in the transmitting center of Radio Habana Cuba, mixing the signals on 6060 and 6165.

So something equivalent should be found on the other side, on 5955, if that frequency is clear.

Is there any place on HF Underground for the spurious and harmonic transmissions ?
