HF Mystery Signals / Re: PIPs 2018-04-19 22:45 UTC
« Last post by GrahamC on April 20, 2018, 2353 UTC »
Thanks Token.

I measured pulse width on one of my recordings from last night - 62.5 it is, all depends of course where you place the start and end and with enough of wiggle you get 64 ;)

Perhaps the 1 PPS PIP signal we occasionally hear is not quite the 16ms I have been measuring.

I have seen you list of frequencies before and use it as a reference. When I find the PIPs active I search down to 2MHz and up over 10MHz  but so far have not heard them below about 5MHz or above 9MHz - perhaps I just don't have the propagation at those times.

I have been searching the FCC database of experimental (and other) licencees that may have been assigned these frequencies but so far I haven't stumbled cross anything similar. The Canadian Industry Canada licence system is not as friendly but regardless I haven't noted anything similar.  Of course it wouldn't be listed if it was military.

Indeed and interesting mystery.

cheers, Graham

The first go of it of the year.  As always, stations are at least 75 miles away from my home base in south central Connecticut.  Will be updated throughout the evening.  All are flagship unless noted.

2255z WFAN 660 am New York City Excellent Reception. Blue Jays at Yankees. Pre-game show, Suzyn Waldman giving starting line ups.  Mentions it is first MLB game for Jay second baseman Lourdes Gurriel, Jr.  "It is 45 degrees here."

2304z WADO 1280 am New York City Excellent Reception. Blue Jays at Yankees (in Spanish). Rickie Ricardo (really his name) gives list of advertisers while Yankee theme song plays in background.  Sonny Gray pitches to Curtis Granderson, Granderson flies out for first out of game.  Third out recorded, no score after a half inning.

2329z WOR 710 am New York City Excellent Reception. Mets at Braves.  Howie Rose with pre-game discussion on plight of Matt Harvey as a starting pitcher. Newcomb facing Conforto to open game, called strike one - 92mph fast ball.  Inning ending double play, no score after a half inning.

2349z WTEM 980 am Washington, DC Fair reception.  Indians at Orioles "1-1 the count. 1-0 Indians in the top of the third. 3-1 pitch to Ramirez" (Oriole affiliate station)

2359z CKGM 690 am Montreal (in English) Good reception. Blue Jays at Yankees. "That was a fastball called strike one.  Nest pitch is low.  Gray's 2-1 pitch is a called strike. Granderson now with a full count walks on ball four. First pitch to Hernandez, this one will be out of here.  It's tied up at 2 in the top of the third." (Blue Jay affiliate station)

0022z WYUS 930 am Milford, DE Fair Reception Indians at Orioles "Buck Showalter is talking with the umpire.  It's a two out RBI double and the game is tied 1-1 here in the fourth." (Oriole Radio Affiliate)

0029z WVMT 620 am Burlington, VT  Good Reception Blue Jays at Yankees "Ball four and now the bases are loaded with Jays. Fly ball to left field and that will end the inning, 5-4 Blue Jays middle of the fourth" (Yankee Radio Affiliate)

0036z WLW 700 am Cincinnati Good Reception Reds at Cardinals "That will be a ground rule double for Molina to drive in two runs for the Cardinals as they take 2-0 lead here in the bottom of the first."

« Last post by Ray Lalleu on April 20, 2018, 2231 UTC »
Hello Skipmuck,

Maybe the same station, maybe not. The exact frequency on Tuesday and Wednesday was read as 6928,07 both days. Maybe it's the temperature at the TX site ? (My Rx seems to have a TCXO, and seems stable within 0.01, even if 0.01 or 0.02 low).

On Tuesday and Wednesday, I heard no ID, no jingle, no announcement.

The conditions were good within Europe tonight, but now all pirates above 5 MHz have faded out. My TA check with Gander Radio on 6604 USB is not too good.

Well, try a report to EnergyPowerAM@hotmail.com

Till next time,

Ray
