UNID 7320 AM 0220 UTC 3 Nov 2023
« on: November 03, 2023, 0226 UTC »
Good solid signal S9+5 on 7320 kHz AM into SW Idaho at 0215 3 Nov 2023.  Lotsa classical music, piano-heavy at the moment.

Is it R. Vostochnaya Zvezda or is it not R. Vostochnaya Zvezda. If not, who not?

S9+10 direct.

0227 UTC-Classical Piano Music
0259 UTC-OFF

Zambo, this is not RVZ. This is an UNID station that has been using this frequency often for about a month or so with varying programming.

Yes Skipmuck, I checked some KiwiSDRs in the east and there is a broadcaster on 7320.1 kHz. The pirate is much closer to zero beat. I only here the pirate direct.

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.

227- Piano music?

I kept hearing the intermittent talking as well-- generally what sounded like a YL-- but I chalked that up to another station (adjacent, harmonic or otherwise), as I thought I could still hear piano music underneath it. Tough to say, however, based on the weak signal here. Had the characteristics of a US West Coast signal, I' guess.

0231 UTC Solid above the noise with an unid piano composition
(I have the carrier at 7320.1 AM....also getting bursts of RTTY sporadically)
Are there 2 stations on 7320? Definitely piano music I'm hearing, and possibly somebody talking.
0244 UTC Yes, there are 2 distinct carriers. Music on one and a speaker in unid language on the other

EDIT: Forgot I have an active subscription to the Black Cat DX Toolbox! There are back to back broadcasts listed for FEBC Phillipines in Urdu from 0200-0230 UTC and 0230-0300 (Fridays) on 7320 AM. Not sure if this is the station on 7320.1, but it would be a good candidate.

This signal has been really good out here near Seattle since I tuned in around 0145 UTC. EIBI lists The Corbett Report as being on this frequency in this hour. Not sure if it's them or not.

Signed off just before 0300 UTC.
