Frequency:  6933 kHz 6.933 MHz
Mode: LSB
Language: Spanish

Similar to the traffic heard on 6930 kHz LSB, hearing two operators having a casual ham radio like QSO, ragchewing, in other words.  Only two stations heard on this frequency as well.  At 0101 UTC, a third station "broke in" the QSO and signal reports were given, then the usual discussion about operating conditions and radio equipment.  Sounds like radio amateurs or freebanders (or radio amateurs operating out of band)  Sounds like the Spanish speaking freebanders often heard on 6900 kHz and other frequencies.    Heavy radar buzz QRM making copy very very difficult.  OTH radar QRM obliterating signals by 0102 UTC.

Hearing more Spanish speaking freebanders chatting away with heavy QRN and over the horizon radar buzz QRM, sounds like two operators, one of them sounding really nice audio wise, the other just barely above the noise with considerable fading.  Numerical callsigns but informal chatter.  At 0058 UTC, they're talking about band conditions and DXing on "20 meters" as well as lack of DX on 11 meters.  Likely ham radio operators operating out of band.  Continued discussion about HF antenna setups and preferences when it comes to wire antennas at 0058-0059 UTC.  Good signals.  These guys are radio hobbyists, not fishermen or pescadores.

AFE822x v2.0 SDR with 43' Wellbrook ALA100LN loop oriented E-W

 7 
 on: Today at 00:55 
Started by Kilokat7 - Last post by Kilokat7
Eclipse peak: 18:22 UTC / 2:22pm EDT, 85% Totality
Antenna: DKAZ loop aimed 180 degrees South
Receiver: Perseus SDR
Location: Western lower Michigan

While enjoying the eclipse outside, the SDR was faithfully recording large chunks of RF spectrum which should provide much enjoyment over the next few weeks.  Peak DX time occurred here near the bottom of the hour before tapering off at 19:00 UTC.  Fishing for IDs at TOH isn't going to cut it this time around and it'll require careful listening of content and other clues near the BOH to pick out the more unusual or desirable signals.  That being said, here's just a very partial start, beginning with the x-band down to 1580.  Nothing new so far, but I've barely scratched the surface!  If nothing else, just hearing Florida from Michigan in the middle of a hot summer day is something I won't soon forget.

Here's a start with more to follow in coming weeks:

1580 kHz: WLPK Connersville, IN. (245w), WHLY South Bend, IN., WAMW Washington, IN. (500w) and others jumbled together @ 18:30 UTC before returning to normal cx at 19:00 UTC with WWSJ St. Johns, MI.


1600 kHz: Goes from threshold WAAM Ann Arbor, MI. to a big jumbled mess by 18:30 UTC.  Heard in the mix: KATZ St. Louis, MO., WAOS Austell, GA. @ 653 miles, "Newstalk 94.1" WUCT Algood, TN. (2.5kw @ 484 miles) & an oldies station matching the webstream of WTZQ Hendersonville, NC. (5kw @ 579 miles).


1620 kHz: Blank channel but WNRP w/ Dave Ramsey begins to appear faintly at 18:21 UTC until building to a respectable signal by 18:28 UTC.  By 18:30 UTC, TIS pest WQBR256 decides to get in on the action along with another unid station under a now powerhouse signal from WNRP @ 882 miles giving Pennsicola weather.  Peaked at around 18:36 UTC and then slowly faded and gone by 18:50 UTC.


1630 kHz: WRDW Augusta, GA. @ 704 miles with sports talk peaking around 18:33 UTC over KCJJ.


1640 kHz: WTNI Biloxi, MS. @ 891 miles with sports talk mixing with WSJP Sussex, WI. peaking around 18:35 UTC.


1660 kHz: Dominated by semi-local WQLR Kalamazoo up until eclipse peak, then Allman Bros. "Midnight Rider" crept up and rivaled WQLR for a few minutes at 18:35 UTC, likely WBCN Charlotte, NC. @ 617 miles.


1670 kHz: Threshold audio from presumed WOZN Madison, WI. which peaked to a strong signal by 18:28 UTC with another weak sports talker under it.  By 18:34 UTC, the weak sports talker is identified as WMGE Dry Branch, GA. w/ FOX Sports @ 730 miles.


1680 kHz: It's semi-local WPRR dominating the channel, as usual.  Music begins to be heard around 18:21 UTC and peaks in strength at 18:28 UTC with a nice solid "99.7 My FM" and into Deee-Lite's "Groove is the Heart".  This is KRJO Monroe, LA. @ 806 miles.  Still there but way under WPRR by 18:36 UTC.


1700 kHz: @ 18:00 UTC the channel is dead.  KBGG Des Moines @ 392 miles the first to appear with Sports program about 1813 UTC with good signal.  KBGG soon mixing with UNID SS talk and into SS music (maybe KKLF?).  By 18:29 UTC, KBGG is gone and now replaced by an overly strong WEUP Huntsville, AL. @ 582 miles to the South.

Nice signal here since 2330 tune in S-7/9. Nice audio.

Hearing music at 0050 UTC tune-in, think I caught the very tail end of the ID

Lots of static crashes and heavy QRN but signal sounds good when the noise isn't overwhelming everything.  S5 to S6 signal strength, similar on several remote receivers

0051 UTC - Black Sabbath - Symptom of The Universe  Grin
0102 UTC - Over The Horizon Radar OTH OTHR QRM buzz making copy very difficult
0114 UTC - signal improved significantly, now a SIO 534, would be a SIO 555 if it weren't for the OTHR QRM, sounding great otherwise
0117 UTC - some minor fading, but still a great signal...peaking at S9+10db - fading down to S7
0118 UTC - The Beatles - Birthday - completely blocking the radar QRM on peaks, nice audio!
0130 UTC - Pink Floyd - Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict
0133 UTC - Pink Floyd - Arnold Layne (another 'Floyd classic!)

I've got a carrier and that's about it, maybe some very faint hints of audio but much louder storm crashes / static crash QRN at 0049 UTC.
