I usually hear HRI via WRMI here in the UK. I have also heard Unique Radio via WRMI in the past but not sure if they still use them.

I also heard this (or at least a station on the frequency) around 0920 utc.  Was away from computer so couldn't post at the time. Seemed to be playing English language pop/soft rock for the 10 mins or so I listened. Signal peaked around SIO 433 but quite bad fades at times.

Possibly Australian Bureau of Meteorology’s marine weather radio service, VMW Wiluna WA ?

It is listed on that frequency and I have caught it occasional both direct and via UK SDRs.

Just a guess.

Equipment / Re: MLA-30 Loop antenna

I got one of these over Christmas and had a little play with it, mostly on the ham bands. Generally it seems an improvement over the random length long wire I also have, although sometimes the noise increase with MLA means the longwire gives a clearer signal even if not as strong. Only got the display on the XHData as a signal meter but that and my ears seems to indicate the MLA gives stronger reception.

I'd also be interested in seeing a couple of pictures of Kris's mod, especially if it can be done by an "electronics novice" with basic/minimal soldering skill. A few posts on youtube and other forums suggest replacing the coax, as IZS4 also suggests, so maybe I'll try that too.

Strong signal (54455)

Spy Numbers / Re: M89 Chinese Military CW
« on: November 13, 2019, 1933 UTC »
Greetings HB and welcome.

Numbers stations like M89 are only on the air for brief amount of time, usually only a few minutes. Unless you have an idea of the schedule for a station the chances of just tuning in at random and hearing it are small. 

One of the best resources for numbers stations is Priyom (www.priyom.org). It will give you information about the format the various stations use - morse, voice, digital etc. There is a standard classification for the naming of stations, the M in M89 indicates it is a morse (cw) station.

Priyom contains a schedule of broadcast by the numbers  stations - well an expected / anticipated schedule since they are 'secret squirrel' organisations running them and they don't exactly publish schedules. Of course they don't always broadcast on schedule but some stations are more regularly than others, even if they broadcast 'null' messages when no real messages are sent.

There is a useful 'Next Station' feature on the Priyom home page. It also lists a 'target area' which may help you identify those you are more likely to hear ... or select an SDR in that region to increase the chances.

Most of the stations I have picked up in the UK are Russian (M12, M01b, XPB, E07) or Polish (E11, F03a). I guess U.Twente SDR would also be good for them.  I think I had M89 once but wasn't 100% sure.

Good hunting.
