HF Mystery Signals / Re: Clicky Carrier

This looks very much like my post here: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,79617.0.html on this same board.
I read, and looked at, the blog site you posted and I think the sigs are very similar. Recently I have noticed that "my" sig has been
up just below 7,000 kHz. I will have to check out the 14,378 kHz sig.

2041 - "Californication" (???). Really booming in here at S9+24!
            Good sounding sig, plenty of good, clean audio.

Thanks for the show.

This is a a repost of what I posted in Longwave Loggings:
 

1906 Fessenden Transmissions WI2XLQ, 486 kHz, 0440, 01jan22 UTC
on: January 01, 2022, 0522 UTC


I've been listening to this station for a while using Chris' KiwiSDR with the 500' beverage pointed toward Europe.
However reception is very good, mostly 59, in spite of much QRN and  the station being kinda off the back of the antenna.
0440 - 0515 Tuned in and listened to a loop consisting of: "O Holy Night" (on violin, I assume), a YL ID and OM description
            of transmission, and short reading from the Bible.

Thanks for this transmission OM and also a big thanks to Chris for providing the KiwiSDR.

Sorry Dood, a little after the fact, but the Heavy Metal Rally was 08jan22 (per Electric Radio #389, Jan / Feb 2022)

6 was open most of this afternoon, at least for FT8, until ~0415 UTC. I tried 50.127 mHz USB but no replies;
ditto for 50.400 AM, also didn't hear any CW when checking that part of the band; sigh... :-[

Checked 144 & 432 SSB, CW, and even FT8 but haven't heard anything but that is probably due
to timing as I would expect at least some local activity. Haven't listened on 222.100 USB yet, but
not gonna hold my breath there..

Utility / KPH RTTY & SITOR 12585.5 kHz 1900 08jan22 UTC
« on: January 09, 2022, 2155 UTC »
Sked for Saturday RTTY / SITOR transmissions at https://www.radiomarine.org/mrhs-operations
is off by 1 hour for UTC. Transmission starts at 1100 PST = 1900 UTC, not 1800 UTC. I suspect
the web page was posted during DST and not updated; looks like their operations run on
local Pacific time, not UTC.

Sig was noisy but I copied ~70% for 3 hours of marine nx and wx for Mates, Masters, and Pilots
on RTTY. At 2200 UTC that was repeated using SITOR. I could not decode the SITOR using fldigi
(OpMode / Navtext / SITORB) but did a quick search and found that YaND (Yet another Navtext Decoder),
which I have installed, would decode the SITOR so switched to that and again got ~70% good
decodes. By ~0000 UTC, 12585.5 was fading out but 6324.5 kHz was beginning to fade in and
I copied that for a while. One of the nx stories was an advisory that piracy, armed robbery, and
kidnapping for ransom, of ships is on the increase in and near the Gulf of Guinea including Cameroon,
Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Sao Tome and Principe, and Gabon.

This is a weekly event and a good opportunity to try out RTTY and SITOR decoders.

2010 - vy good sig, mostly S9+ w/a little QSB, into here w/SSTV images. Anything by Tangerine Dream
           is fine w/me. Perfect background mx for this "beautifully gloomy day".
           Rain started ~0100 and now the 6" of snow and low teen temps are gone
           but the wind has come around from the NW, baro is "Rising Rapidly", and the
           temp is also dropping after a high of 52.9 F.  Thanks for the fine mx for the day.

From The ARRL Letter for December 9, 2021
Also on the same date and slightly overlapping, see: https://www.radioclubofamerica.org/transatlantic-test-centennial

In a separate event on December 12 at 0252 UTC, The Radio Club of America's W2RCA will make a one-way transmission on 1825 kHz at 12 WPM CW, from Connecticut. RCA members constructed the original transmitter and "shack" used in Connecticut for the successful transatlantic transmissions. In addition to the original 1921 message, a new message will be transmitted that looks ahead to the next 100 years. Those who copy the message qualify for a certificate. -- Thanks to Mark Erdle, AE2EA, Antique Wireless Association, and to the Radio Club of America

AND: ARRL and the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) have assembled a list of stations and groups that are organizing events and activities to celebrate 100 years of amateur radio transatlantic communication. Visit http://www.arrl.org/transatlantic and https://rsgb.org/transatlantic-tests. The sites also include links to many previously published articles and presentations covering the historic tests.

1510 - Chatter and announced switching to Bluegrass mx.
            Thanks for the BG, any BG is good BG! :)
             Sig now rather solid 59.

1525 - Oh, yes, many thanks for Alison Krauss.
            How about some Doc Watson &/or Norman Blake,
            if you have some?

to permit maximum users who wish to listen to 5,000th broadcast of Grand Ol' Opry on WSM-AM 650kHz
