I've got something similar on that frequency @1:28 UTC on 7 April 2023 in AM mode, a blast of SSTV, some punk/hardcore thrash and back into mellow techno at 1:32. Mojave Kiwi owned by a token member of the board. Signal varies from strong to barely there.

It's not SSTV, it's some type of data signal in the lower sideband. Off after 1:48. Now to smoke out Josiah's looney ass.

Wait a second, they're back or my WiFi connection froze for awhile? The wonders of technology. ID of some type @ 2:01.

Weak but music heard direct (much better than when he was using SSB), music much higher above the noise and good audio.

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using an SDRPlay RSP1A for SWL with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 40 feet. Kenwood TS-570D for ham use.

04:02 UTC 07 APR 2023 - Signal is weak. I can see a carrier but cannot pull any audio out.

Question: Dxcan, is there a remote method of switching the antennae feeding the Kiwi at Sundre?

First time used this site south of me, I am not aware if the beverages can be switched....
it's possible..better to ask the Ham who has this site?

Switched to the Kiwi site (0425) in /at Stevensville Western Montana (at WOAY) with a much better signal..
