Very nice Beerus, in your local Beverly area??


Does it work?

No.  ???

I took a chance and plugged it in. The dial lights illuminate, and the tubes light, but I haven't received anything yet. I'm going to get it opened up and check the caps and see what might need replacement, and also for any open solder joints. If that doesn't do it, I'll replace the tubes. I think I can get this thing working pretty easily.

This thread is for yard sale, estate sale or barn finds or the like. Anyone can participate in this thread. I'll start. Check out the Hallicrafters SX-99 I bought yesterday for $15:

More info over on 30 Below:


Late tune in. Dick Weed with mention of "analog relaxation" at 0204 UTC and wishes listeners a wonderful weekend. Very good S9 signal here in the Boston burbs with moderate fading and summer noise.

Equipment / Re: Smortwave Antena in an apartment

How high off the ground is your deck? This is a pretty basic offset dipole antenna. Up in the air between two trees, it would work great. Hidden on your deck will be a compromise, but it will be an improvement, probably, over most indoor antennas.

If you are inclined to build a little bit, the suggestion above to build a loop would be great. Nobody needs to know it's an antenna. Tell them it's a hummingbird migratory aid.

You are welcome to announce. But please just use one ongoing thread (this one), and update it when you plan on being on the air. Rather than post a new thread each time. Thanks.

I'm not sure if this is the same show that Sealord linked above (I don't have audio on this computer) but here's another mp3:


He's back in Nevada.

Yep. Also, this same gang, including "Deep Audio Guy" was up around 6960-6970ish over the winter and spring (I think 6970) pretty much all the time, like they are these days on 6925. I wonder why they moved down.

Agree. It seems that there is some sort of nightly"ragchew" fish net on 6925L. They get there early, and then leave late."

I am not certain these guys are actually on boats, at least not all of them. At least a couple of them, like "Deep Audio Guy", I think are land based. The signal strength is much stronger and more consistent with him than the guys who might be on boats. My theory is these guys are out of the Azores. I can't speak Portuguese, but I am pretty sure it is. "Deep Audio Guy" sounds kind of like one of the hi-fi SSBers on ham radio. You can sometimes tell that they are discussing radio stuff by picking out various words like brand names associated with ham gear.

Various albums I've been hooked on over the years. You can see my tastes are all over the map...

1. My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
2. Yo La Tengo - Painful
3. Happy Mondays - Bummed
4. Dinosaur Jr. - Green Mind
5. Smashing Pumpkins - Gish
6. XTC - English Settlement
7. Underworld - Second Toughest in the Infants
8. Midnight Oil - Scream in Blue (live album, they're really good live but not my favorite studio band)
9. Kruder & Dorfmeister - The K&D Sessions
10. KLF - The White Room


Banging into the Boston burbs with a signal peaking at +20. Very clear, frequent IDs. The robots are circling the planet and are also on the surface, amongst us. voiceoftherobots@gmail.com

Other / 6560 KHz USB Korean QSO 7/29/2013 0044 UTC+

Have a couple of (presumed, but pretty sure) Koreans in QSO on 6560 KHz USB at 0044 UTC. Signals are about S5. Not sure how many guys are on this little net; if it's just 2 or there might be a couple of more.

A suggestion, from the offices of Beerus Maximus, to pirate operators.

Please consider, where possible and if you are frequency agile, choosing another frequency near 6925. A nightly "peskie" net has taken up residence on 6925 LSB and absolutely destroys modest pirate signals on this frequency. The peskies are probably more of a problem for us up here in the northeast but considering the density of listeners here, it would be really nice if you move up or down a bit so we can hear you. Moving frequencies isn't such a big problem these days; with so many listeners using SDR radios to watch a huge chunk of spectrum around 6925 you'll be found in no time.

There's actually not a WHOLE lot of P-25 up here in the Boston area. By and large most incidents can be monitored in free and clear analog.

Very weak carrier noted at 6924.2 at 0023 UTC. Not sure if this is what you are hearing. It's too weak and the ever-present LSB peskienet is up and running.
