MW Loggings / Mystery Spanish modern music station 1070kHz.
« on: August 13, 2021, 0716 UTC »
Several night, while it's still dark, I've found a pretty strong music station jamming reggae, Hip-Hop, and EDM, but all of it, including announcements and jingles, are in Spanish. Well, since No hablo espaņol, I have yet to ID this station. Anyone else hearing this on 1070kHz?

This could be interesting.   https://www.fema.gov/event/ipaws-national-test   Word on da' street also has it that cell phones and even another test of an internet kill-switch might happen then. Hmmmmmm... Could be interesting to listen for.

Heard this on Amateur Radio Newsline #2282. With Sporadic "E" still in play, this should make for an interesting catch! https://ei7gl.blogspot.com/2021/07/new-us-experimental-station-wl2xup-now.html

Looks like the Russian have taken thing up a notch in DSP / SDR based receivers.    https://swling.com/blog/2021/07/guest-post-and-review-test-driving-the-russia-made-malahit-dsp-2/

MW Loggings / Not hearing Hudson Valley TIS lately 1710kHz.
« on: July 16, 2021, 1916 UTC »
Yeah... For several weeks, I haven't heard that 100W Hudson Valley TIS from NJ. (Can't say as I miss them.) So, does that leave 1710kHz semi-open again? Hmmmmmmm???

Huh??? Found this interesting. Kenwood has a license-free HT that operates from 446.000MHz to 446.100MHz, at 1/2W ERP, in the 70cm HAM Band? When was this allowed? https://www.kenwood.com/sg/com/lfr/pkt-23/   Thought it 1st to be FRS, then I'd seen the 446MHz FREQ spec's. Looks like a neat simplex-only HT.
UPDATE:   Ah... Thank you Sparx! (Added reply below.) That would explain a few things there.

MW Loggings / 1270AM WDLR, Marysville, OH, 03:45UTC, 7/6/2021.

Huh... 3rd July in a row that I've been able to DX this station in WV. Promos as Y96.7FM, (Going with it's translator, of course.). Playing classic hits like Foreigner, Yes, Mr-Mr, Cindy Lauper, etc. https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/finder?sr=Y&s=C&call=wdlr&nav=home    What's so weird is that I only seem to be able to hear this station in the month of July, and I have tried in other months. Huh... Propagational clock-work, I guess. That night time pattern is pointed right at me. Is anyone else DX'ing this station?

Huh? / Windows 11? Why???
« on: June 30, 2021, 2202 UTC »
So, it's supposed to be like Mac OS? Mac OS sucks now. At least, I think it does. https://www.cnet.com/news/windows-11-release-date-this-is-when-you-can-install-microsofts-free-update/

Yeah... Not really radio related here, or could it be made to be? https://www.amazon.com/Windows-Computer-Support-Bluetooth-AIOEXPC/dp/B08TVM3M3B  Gotta' thank Rob, W8XRW for bring this to my attention. Heś using his for Yaesu C4FM Fusion WIRES-X. However, I could see using this PC Stick as an ultimate portable PC SDR. This would easily replace the Acer Netbook, with Intel Atom, from 2009, that I use to program most of my two-way rigs. So, possibilities here could be endless.   

Amateur Radio / ARRL Field Day is June 26-27, 2021.

Tis the season.    http://www.arrl.org/Field-Day    Now, can we keep the T-storms away and have lots od Sporadic E? Tropo would be nice, for getting those VHF / UHF points.
