"Le beau Danube bleu" sous des tonnes de pollution jaunātre !

The signal seems clearer on the upper sideband, at least for me.

ID and email address at 1942 UTC, into The Blue Danube waltz. I have them on 6960.92 KHz.

I left the room and then came back at 2004 to see the signal disappear from the waterfall. TX off.

Hard to tell if Radio 208 is recovering from modulation anaemia, from weak propagation, or from Covid 19.

Listening on an SDR in Norway. SINPO 44343 at 1930 UTC. Their modulation may be a bit weak but I'm not sure. Perhaps they need an injection of iron to get them on their feet again.  :)
ID at 1932 UTC.

1843 a few notes of "Star spangled banner" are not enough to make the Stanag stand by upright!

Because the STANAG doesn't come from the U.S. Army.  :)

Promo announcement that Ray refers to, starting with the Star-Spangled Banner, was to apologize to other users of the frequency ('the army"), saying that Mystery 21 will return the frequency "fresh and clean" when they are done with it.  ;D

Property is theft, nobody "owns" any frequency, the airwaves are there for all to use. Lol

That's why I used quotation marks.  :D ;)

I'm noting digital interference under their signal now on an SDR in Norway, but not so much on an SDR in Austria. I wonder if this is jamming or just the "rightful owner" using the frequency.

UPDATE: interference stopped at 1837 UTC.

But now it's back at 1845.

TX off the air at 1757 UTC.

I have also not noticed this at my QTH either... but it could be that Ray is at exactly the right distance from, for example, Holland, to get a combination of E and F skip from the same station, simultaneously, this can make signals stronger or weaker, depending on phasing and refraction paths.... and considering we are talking about two completely different ionospheric layers, they could affect the signal in complex and sudden ways. It could be other factors though.


I am hearing Doppler-like effects and it is noticeable when listening to AM with a synchronous detector on several signals in the 48 meter band, so it's not just one station's VFO shifting; they are all doing this. With the use of the synchronous detector, you will hear a momentary distortion of the signal, as the effective carrier frequency shifts and as the PLL goes out of lock briefly, then comes back into lock after 0.5-1.5 seconds or so. I assume that SSB or CW would go through something similar.

I noticed this now too. Universally mediocre reception in Norway, Poland and central Italy at the moment; average SINPO ~22232.

Many signals are going up and down like mad camels !

I just started listening now, at 1720 UTC and I haven't noticed anything unusual, but, again, I'm late to arrive at the party. When you say "going up and down", is it anything like aurora flutter?

UPDATE: I am hearing Doppler-like effects now, 1737 UTC.

Pop and C&W music. ID at 2106 UTC. SINPO 43444 on an SDR in Norway.

TX off the air at 2112 UTC.

(Sorry, KaySeeks, I had to shake your post to clean the forum)

No problem.
