S9 in the Boston burbs at 1932 UTC. Playing some kind of rap/hip-hop sort of thing.

Nice strong carrier, solid S9, at 0022 UTC (1/27). But audio is low and kind of muffled.

Very loud S9+10 signal here in the Boston burbs. "Stop! In the Name of Love" by The Supremes ending at 0211 UTC (1/26). Then into another Motown style song I don't recognize (not really my genre).

ID heard at 0058 UTC (1/22). Signal is taking some long, deep fades but has peaked as high as S7 or S8 for brief periods.

Tonight I've joined the ADS-B club too. Late last week I ordered two of the R820T units from NooElec. They arrived today. I got rtlsdr and dump1090 working together on Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit.

A rough outline is here:


Band went long right at about 0122 UTC and the signal just dived. No meaningful copy now.

Tuned in and heard a country song trailing out, and then Radio Vixen International ID by a female (computer voice?). Then into Jimmy Buffet "A Pirate Looks at Forty". Good S9 signal here.

Ranging from S2-S4 here at 0030 UTC. Blues song.

WMPR just signed onto 6924.9 KHz at 2020. Decent S7 signal.

I have church bells ringing in AM mode on 6924.6 KHz AM at 1846. Family Radio ID at 1848 UTC. Good S6 signal with moderate fading. Into a stand-up comic routine after 1850 UTC.

Nice S7-S8 signal here with minor fading. ID noted at 2029 UTC. Usual trance/electro format. Sounds good this afternoon!

Now relaying Cool AM (positive ID at 0035 UTC). Playing oldies, blues type stuff. Good S6 signal again tonight.

Off at 0150 UTC.

Blue Ocean Radio is relaying Pirating With Cumbre, 6925 KHz USB 0142 UTC 1/10. S6 signal here.

Nice article. I began using IRC back in the early 1990's, right as dialup internet began to challenge standalone dialup bulletin boards. IRC was a lot of fun back then, being relegated mostly to academia and certain cultural undergrounds. When the web, and instant messengers (AOL, Yahoo, Microsoft) hit the scene later in the 90's I think most people figured IRC would fade away just like the old BBS scene did.

But, IRC has endured.

It's interesting to note that IRC is *widely* used in today's military theaters of operation, having been re-discovered as a simple and robust theater communications protocol during the Iraq war. Here's an example study called "The Impact of Synchronous Text-Based Chat on Military Command and Control":


It specifically talks about the impact of IRC. Interesting stuff...
