Nice clear recording.  I've been monitoring that signal for the past few months and have been keeping a log.  I'm dialing it in form Seattle, Washington, USA, so I don't get as clear of a signal as yours.  But so far, I've logged HM01 at 10.345, 13.435, and 14.375 at at 0500, 0600, and 0700 UTC.

P.S. I dig your avatar.  I'm a huge fan of The Smiths!

Hi, if you're following hm01' you'll like this: https://www.youtube.com/user/desmoface/videos

I generally have excellent propagation into South America so I generally hear Hm01 very strong.

I'm a big Smith's fan, obviously, LOL.  Rumor has it that Morrissey is working on a new album.

Hey, thanks for the link. Is that your YouTube channel?  I subscribed to it.  Here's my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/77RamonesCramps

Yep, that's my channel.  I subscribed to yours, some very good stuff on there...  I have a tough time copying the Chinese stations....listening to one of your videos now of a Chinese # station.

I can only copy Chinese stations very early in the morning at my location, which means I either have to stay up late or get up early to hear them.  My goal is to try to hear the Chinese "Firedrake" Jammer, but so far, no luck.  :-\

At work right now, and cannot post to YT, so will throw it here until I can post from home.

Strange Beacons, your mystery beacon "five dits one dash" is not a beacon at all.  That is Link 11 Tactical Data link.

Hey Token: Many thanks for replying re the "Five Dits, One Dash" signal that I recorded last night.  I just Googled "Link 11 Tactical Data Link" and got this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tactical_Data_Link

It would totally make sense that this is indeed what the signal is, as I have been monitoring what I believe are at least five different military signals from 8692 Khz to 9083 Khz.  

When you have time, I'd certainly like to hear what you know about that signal.

Edit: Found this video of yours that gives a great explanation of what TDL's are and what they sound like: http://youtu.be/__-rtLRQUhg
