At 1830 hearing a QSO on 27.575 AM. OM said something about switching to 10m. Also 27.385 & 27.405 LSB heard. -Justin

I was listening to all the activity on 38 and lots of LSB  both above and below it. A couple guys were on 27.370  Also heard activity on 27.450 OM was talking about how he loves his Yaesu but still likes Kenwood  -Justin

Reggae/dub music w/ ID "Robin hood radio is broadcasting live" also heard SSTV earlier. S9 but noise lever is  high. Signed off @ 0510 with SSTV & 1 rock song. Thanks for the tunes :-) -Justin

Caught a bit of music & SSTV @ 2:22 then off. Just above the noise in SW FL.

Probably not as annoying on AM maybe thats why I never noticed it.  It was outside the US 11m band. I  know OTHRs are everywhere else on the HF bands. I just don't check 11m with an SDR  often but it was open. 73's   -Justin

Got it in SW FL  S7 switched from rock to reggae/dub at 0400. Heard a few cover tunes "When You Were Mine" (Prince) was one. Now the mellow dub tunes. -Justin

Tuned in a few min ago heard SSTV now faint music. Under a bit of local PSU noise from my pc -Justin

10/11 meters / OTHR on 11m?
« on: May 26, 2019, 1715 UTC »
The band was open this AM and was monitoring 27.385 and above it saw the distinct cris cross of a 10kHz wide OTHR. Not very strong but present looked similar to what I see just below 40m a lot.  I didn't get a screen shot but will try if I see it again.  -Justin in SW FL

For many, myself included, the radio bug strikes at a young age and gets its claws in. The resulting GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) often gets so bad that the user becomes a HAM (Had Alot (of) Money)

Joking aside, my first radio was CB and i had a base. This led to just taking apart AM/FM radios & found I could get SW by tweaking them. Then after I got my license I mostly was a listener (back in those days of 900mHz cell phones I bought a BC-855xlt clipped the diode) Then in college (still were 49mhz cordless) we lived in apartments had no cable but got to know our neighbors quite well. They were our entertainment  ;)

I mostly listen but there is so much to do under the umbrella of radio, and even with a 10w radio on FT8 the other night i got into both NZ and Russia at the same time (on 30m) thats simply amazing... this lil brick radio being heard simultaneously in both hemispheres, thousands of miles away from me as well as each other!

Though my interests in radio shift with time, there is usually something fun. And cuz I'm old I can say little matched the excitement of analog phones in Orlando in the 90's (best was a guy saying he doesn't smoke crack...wink wink... cuz people can sometimes tap the phones" we were recording it too and almost died laughing. His crackhead paranoia was RIGHT :p

Heard in SW FL S7 caught ID of "Robin Hood Radio", great show, that old school dub/reggae sounds good (some reason maybe cuz its mastered for vinyl I tend to enjoy old music on the raidio a bit more....not sure if its the "sound,'  or just effect of me being old, .or "old school" sounds cooler :p)

Enjoyed the show either way, Thanks! -Justin

Heard it earlier (took my portable out to feed the cats) good signal into SW FL. Me and the kitties were jammin to the bananboat song. Thanks!

Weak but just heard "Trench Town Rock" by Bob Marley and some instrumental/dub here in SW FL got ID as RHR at 0530, off at 0600 with SSTV (heard a couple if anyone caught em please post!) Thanks for the show! -Justin

Heard a carrier w/male voice down in the noise though too weak to copy. Still got the carrier (fading in & out))

5357 is usually the freq on 60m used for FT8 FWIW I hear talking here in SW FL in the noise though sounded like ads
