What is broadcasting on 13030 & 13170 KHZ USB UTC?
« on: June 07, 2023, 2021 UTC »
I am hearing an unknown language on both of these frequencies at the same moment. No IDs. I have looked it up on Google, EiBiSpace, etc. I can find nothing definite. It started today at 1945 UTC. I am hearing it on a SDR via KiwiSDR out of Ireland, emeraldsdr. I heard it last night as well. It just stopped at 2015 UTC. Sounds like it may be a weather broadcast, based on the way the message sounds. I heard it last night on my PL680 with an long wire, but can't hear it today except on the SDR.

The only reason I chose the Ireland SDR is because it is a good one to listen to Europe and east of there. I will try others when I hear it again.

Any ideas?  Thank you.
