Must have caught the very tail-end of this. Various 2020 Election Hip-Hop Mash-ups. 6925USB. 19:44 - 19:47UTC. Signal S+20/9, but deep fades to S1. Low noise floor at my end, so could still copy. Used the Icom IC-745 to RX this, so my audio quality is always so-so, but as good as that rig could sound in USB.

CONGRAT's on SWL'ing! For many station, you can go their sites, like WTWW,   http://wtww.us/    , and they're bigger into tunage. Try the sched on WBCQ,    http://wbcq.com/schedule/    Various music programs there. For news, tune-in to CFRX 6070kHz, which is 1010AM CFRB simulcating on the 49M band. Then, there's WRMI's sched,   https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nEVwCMB9RSKowLzLXamyayVpCzjmPAw_SB1r3YOdzQc/edit?pref=2&pli=1#gid=0
Radio Habana Cuba has much tunage, evenings at 6000kHz,   Oh!!! Then there was this posting a while ago,   https://swling.com/blog/2016/01/b15-broadcast-period-alan-roes-guide-to-music-on-shortwave/
Hope that helps you to some degree. Happy DX'ing!!!!!!

Amateur Radio / Re: 10M Contest today?
« on: December 13, 2020, 2034 UTC »
Oooops, I did it again! (And, Brittney Spears was not involved.) Double posted about this contest up on the 10M / 11M Post. Oh well, that just give X2 chance to check out that contest now, right?

Huh? / CHU, Canada’s Time Station tour!

10/11 meters / ARRL 10M Contest on now!
« on: December 13, 2020, 2028 UTC »
A little late, but hearing "0", "6", "7", and "9", stations on 10M this afternoon.    https://www.contestcalendar.com/contestdetails.php?ref=199

And,      http://www.arrl.org/10-meter

Anyway, a good propagation test, to say the least.

I've listened to that older dude in the evenings on 720WGN. He gets a lot of calls from the Upper Michigan Penninsula. He'll even talk about radio stuff, classic jocks, kick-ass receivers of the 50's and 60's, and even other stations.

FM Free Radio / Tis the season for X-mas Display Part #15 stations!
« on: December 05, 2020, 0742 UTC »
Anyone hearing FM stations to go with monster whole yard displays? A dude here is back on 101.3FM stereo with X-mas tunage. True Part #15 range, MAX's out about 1/8th mile in both directions.

Propagation / Re: Solar cycle 25 . Very interesting? I have my doubts.
« on: December 05, 2020, 0726 UTC »
Well, tell ya what, propagation at night this week has just sucked on the amateur bands. Even down on MW. I usually have to drive pretty close to my QTH to hear my Part #15 AM1620 at night, due to Cuba and Pensacola, FL duking it out on 1620kHz, but not this week. And the HAM's that I do hear on the regular chit-chat FREQ's, (1880Khz, 3810Khz, 3919Khz, 3995Khz, etc.), are bitching up a storm that they have trouble hearing each other. I have to use the preamps on 40M to hear the normal decent 6, 7, upper 0, and Western 5, lands. I just hope for a nice "E" season for 12M, 11M, 10M, and 6M.

The RF Workbench / Re: 22 meter low pass filter design
« on: December 05, 2020, 0715 UTC »
Well, yeah!!!! Just copy the one that I made for this 13.560MHz milliwatt TX,     http://boomerthedog.net/13560.html   Scroll down to the bottom for the two page .PDF schematic, then check-out the Chebychev Filter that's at the end of Q3, and between TP3 and TP4, on the LPF Board. All built from salvaged parts as well. Good luck!!!

Huh... Not everyone has an E-mail address out there. Especially, those that are off-grid.    http://www.arrl.org/w1aw-bulletins-archive/ARLB038/2020

And, what an F'n waste. I'd rather have my tax $$$$$ pay for that, than BS overseas wars. Hopefully, Greenbank will still keep rockin',   https://public.nrao.edu/telescopes/300-foot-telescope/

CONGRAT's!!!!!!!! Well, the Winter Sporadic "E" season will be jammin' in a couple of weeks, albeit 10M maybe open up anytime in December. Also, if you have a decent scanner that can do 29MHz, punch in 29.600MHz FM Simplex, and the 10M repeater FREQ's, 29.620MHz, 29.640MHz, 29.660MHz, and 29.680MHz. Then, you might find local USB 10M chit-chatters around 28.400MHz. Tis the season.

Being that low in FREQ, they have an incredible footprint. In the daytime, you can hear them all the way past the Elmira / Corning / Ithaca area.

MW Loggings / Re: EDM on 1580kHz? This might explain.

Ah-ha!!! https://radioinsight.com/headlines/201628/cd-returns-in-columbus-on-92-9/
Laugh In German soldier says, "Very interesting."

Surprised this dude didn't mention the Heathkit HW QRP transceiver series. I had a chance to check-out an HW-8 when a friend asked me to repair the TX side of it. Easy fix, and didn't really need a schematic, but still found the bad diode in it. Trying out myself, before giving it back, I thought that to be a neat kit, with a pretty decent receiver on it. I'd take one today.
