Likely that was 2 x 1470.x HJNT Huellas Radio, Cali Colombia - heard this morning at 1030 UTC with impashioned Spanish preacher, confirmed via comparison with the TWR kiwiSDR and their web stream http://www.radios.com.co/huellas/

First heard them last year, about this time.

Heard throughout the evening, finally signing off at 0400Z w/ Tater Patch Radio ID, with an announcement by station engineer/owner John Hart acknowledging they were on 1710 last night because "it was clear" and that they wanted to "do a little bit of skipping". Mentioned they were picked up in Indiana, and would be returning to 1700. Also mentioned they could be picked up online on the WPEX and Tater Patch Radio websites.

The stations in the file with a - are indeed off the air, and there are more since (that was from the big shutdown a few years ago).

Very good; I just discovered the UNID window, and noticed that the stations showing up there correspond to stations that are marked as "off the air" so that tells me I need to check UNID's in order to get a complete listing for these older recordings.

Thank you!

Hi Chris,

Question: with the decreasing number of US stations now on the air, is there any way to tell what stations are in the program's built-in list? I am decoding SDR files that are up to 10 years old, and wondered whether all the stations on the air at the time of the recording are in the list. I looked through the included DGPSSTATIONLISTING.TXT.BAK.TXT file and wondered if that represents the list that will be used when running the program? I also noticed that some of the stations in that file had a "-" in from the their frequency, and wondered if this signified a station that was not longer being checked by the program?

Thank you, and thanks for making the program available!

Very nice, Chris - I just tried out the Windows 1.0.3 version; I recorded a Perseus file ~ 12 minutes @ 125 kHz tonight and it processed just fine. Just for grins I re-ran it at 9 kHz spacing and darned if it didn't find some TA carriers that I didn't know were there. Nice work!
