24 March 2016 0010-0045 UTC. SIO 222 at best, but Bollywood music distinctly audible. Occasional male announcer, unable to hear anything intelligible unfortunately.

Per short-wave dot info, this is transmitting at an azimuth of 188. Since the transmitter is at a bearing of 357 from my location, it must have gone around the South Pole to reach my radio.

Interesting. Are you able to pick up V24 transmissions at your location? I know that Token (also in California) has. They have been using frequencies in that band a lot lately.

0038 - Bad Bad Leroy Brown. First single I ever owned. Second one was "Disco Duck."

That's the best it's been for me. 232 or so. Still getting the hang of these codes.

0044 - Your Mama Don't Dance and Your Daddy Don't Rock n Roll

Since 0046 too noisy to hear, but never mind. Thanks for the show JP!

Found this at 6300 am at about 1622z while scrolling around on Twente's web SDR, and it suddenly jumped down to 6290 at 1625. Sounds like old European pop music. Can't tell what language it is.
1629-1645 various folk songs (my best guess at genre)
1646 "Vaya Con Dios." Don't know who the female singer is, but at least I recognize the song.

Decent signal to Denver, 232 perhaps.
Suddenly off at 210?
Back at 211. Signal is more distorted now.

Just barely hearing it here in colorful Colorado, just enough to know something is there. Kinda neat because I found them on the radio first before seeing an active thread here.

Thanks for the link Oliver, I will definitely check that out.  ;D

^ Terrific photos, thanks for sharing.

Dang, wish I could hear this one. Why are all the pirates back east?

I can occasionally detect something in the noise. If there's such a thing of an SIO of 000, this is probably it.

Listening to VOK is trippy. I can't imagine what it must feel like to visit the DPRK.

Good tip Josh. Thanks!

Equipment / Regarding long wire antennas.
« on: March 16, 2016, 1611 UTC »
I'm about to embark on my first antenna project, a simple longwire. I have a 100' spool (suburban living means that's about the maximum I can make it) and thought I would connect it to my chimney on the far end and a tree outside my window for the near. That should give me around 50' of taught wire.

My question is this. In my research of longwire projects find that people often solder on the lead that connects to their receiver. However my unit (a Grundig Sattelit 750) has a place where you can connect a bare wire for the antenna in a jack like you find on a stereo speaker. Assuming that I get the length nice and taught, can I just trail the end of the wire down to the receiver directly? Or is there a compelling reason for soldering on a lead?

Thank you!

Have you dialed those numbers to see who answers?  ;)
