Please stop posting new posts announcing your broadcasts in this forum. It dilutes the quality of the topics. You may have one thread going that you update when you go on the air. I have merged all of your previous posts into this one thread.

MW Loggings / Re: Radio Torrente de Vida 1690 KHz (Boston area)

Approaching yet another year later and this operation is still active. Noted at 1819 UTC on 7/28/2013. They have cleaned up their audio, somewhat.

Other / Ditter network active 7/28/2013.

Centered on approximately 17475 KHz, but audible best in USB at 17474 KHz or in LSB at 17476 is a pronounced "beep" at about 5 second intervals (edit: noted by Token to be actually 6 seconds). Noted at 1635 UTC on 7/28/2013, tipped via #wunclub on IRC, confirmed by Token to be one of the ditters. It's S7 with minor fading here.

Other frequencies active right now (these are the center freqs but I tune -1 KHz in USB):

17650 (much weaker than 17475)
17950 (much weaker than 17475)
17975 (equal to 17475)
18050 (equal to 17475)
18450 (very variable signal strength)

Other known possibly freqs are listed here:


Update: transmissions on all the frequencies I noted have ceased at 1650 UTC.

I have this one (presumed) on 7/28/2013 at 1622 UTC. OM in Arabic speaking, sounds like a news read or narration of some kind. Signal is S5 on my 40m dipole.

This is an awesome post and your loops look amazing. I'd really be interested in plans/schematics if you are ever inclined.

Heard the Black Magic Woman open, then went down for a beer, now back up in the big chair at 0211 UTC with RML doing a live announcement and shout-outs. Good S7 signal here in the Boston burbs.

Positive Rave On Radio ID at 0111 UTC. Signal is about S2 here in the Boston burbs.

If this is the same station that played The Cure 0105 UTC then, I have it too, but very weak and at the noise level. What I'm hearing now does sound like Genesis, as reported in the IRC chat room.

Clear Boombox Radio ID at 2333 and back into another electro tune. Signal is S8, peaks to S9, moderate fading and QRM from peskies who seem to have taken up permanent residence on 6925 LSB.

Duran Duran "Rio" ending around 0210 and then DJ Dick Weed with an announcement. Then into Stereo Fuse "Everthing" at 0211. A very nice (and improved) S9+20 signal here in the Boston burbs. Thanks RFW!

Is this really regional? Sounds like it's a national thing.


Maybe some building inspectors will ignore this but I gotta imagine the supply chain is heavily weighted towards the low flush thing so it's probably tough to get a water bomber unless it's vintage, like someone else here was saying.

General Radio Discussion / Re: My Antenna ?

You made your antenna elements out of RG-58?


Doesn't surprise me. What does surprise me is that Pop Comm has outlived MT. In recent years, despite the cheap black and white format, MT was superior in content at the technical and informational level. Pop Comm is essentially 12 issues a year of a Gordon West doll in different poses. Puff pieces, for sure. It's sad, and I admire people for keeping these things going on as long as they have, but they are really not viable businesses in this day and age and it shouldn't surprise anyone here.

Nice S9 signal with Pearl Jam at 0051 UTC and then an ID. Sounds nice tonight!
