RHC doing Spanish Numbers on 6165?
« on: September 19, 2022, 0514 UTC »
Another transmitter SNAFU? About 0510 and 6165 khz is transmitting Spanish Numbers on the traditional RHC frequency.

Lots more data bursts than I remember.
Most reception on Eton Executive + YouLoop unless said otherwise

That's interesting. I playing around with Chris's SDR's and antenna's last night and thought I heard the Cuban Numbers lady on the top half of the 49 meter band. I didn't pay atencion to what frequency, as I've heard it so much over the years.

Yeah, HM01 showing up on RHC frequencies and vice versa still happen. The data bursts you're hearing are DRM. They finally got away from RDFT earlier this year.

I once heard Arnie Coro telling people how to build ssb rigs with TV tubes. He said it tended to drift 40-50 hz. He ran RHC for decades, that explains a lot.
