Shortwave Pirate / Spider Radio 10/15/08
« on: October 15, 2008, 2105 UTC »
I am receiving Spider Radio from Greece on Wednesday, October 15 on 6925 USB, beginning at about 2048 UTC with John Lennon's "Imagine" followed by a horn piece, and then into SSTV at 2100 UTC. Appeared off by 2105. Signal is weak but readable, and I was given the ID by someone on the hfunderground.com chat room. No ID was actually heard during the transmission.

Shortwave Pirate / Mystery Radio 6220 KHz

Mystery Radio is putting in a solid S8 signal here in Eastern Massachusetts tonight on 6220 KHz AM at 2250 UTC. Best signal from them in a long time. Playing eclectic pop/disco music.

Shortwave Broadcast / Re: Is DRM the next AM Stereo?
« on: September 23, 2008, 2335 UTC »
I think DRM stands a chance, only because it's a fairly open standard. There is enthusiasm in Europe, but it is slow going.

IBOC, on the other hand, is toast and on life support. The only hope for it is for the Ibiquity lobbyists to get the FCC to cram it down our throats, and it looks like it may happen. There are semi-serious discussions happening now around moving all digital AM stations up to a part of the spectrum vacated by VHF TV stations when they shut off their analog transmitters in February.

Ibiquity and the larger broadcast conglomerates would probably rally around this idea. It would force, en-masse, consumers to abandon most receivers for new gear and probably be the nail in the coffin for smaller ma & pa AM holdouts. It would be a sad day for American radio but it would actually open up interesting possibilities for mediumwave DXers, as the MW spectrum in North America would suddenly become quiet. The DX would be rolling in. It's a high price to pay, though.

Here is an article on the concept: http://www.rwonline.com/pages/s.0052/t.15575.html

I just bought a new motorcycle. Who else out in radio land is a motorcycle enthusiast? What do you ride?

Is it at all possible for you to move down to 6925? Or are you crystal bound?

General Radio Discussion / Re: JVC & Kenwood Merger
« on: May 15, 2008, 2356 UTC »
Kenwood's amateur business has been in decline for a long time, anyways. The last HF model they introduced was in 2003, which was the TS-480. I own one of these, and it is absolutely fantastic. But not a single model HF model has followed on since then. I hope they stay in the amateur market, but things look... not so good.

Very good S9+20 signal at 0049 UTC in Massachusetts. Yes, modulation sounds a little low, but still very readable.
