9216 khz Bovine Buzzer 1545z- 09-09-18
« on: September 09, 2018, 1616 UTC »
Hearing what sounds like UVB-76/S28 on 9216 - currently tuned to 9215.5 USB.  Never heard this here before.  New frequency for them?

19:02z still going with decent signal

15:53z (9-10-18) still buzzing away

Checked a few days in a row and nothing noted here save for some relatively weak pc psu spurs. OOps just caught some ale 3g bursts. If someone's using this freq for an 3g net you might find digital traffic on occasion.

3g stuff;

Interesting; I checked around 02:00z last night & 10:00z this morning and the signal strength hasn't varied that much down here in my neck of the woods, but when I first stumbled upon it this past weekend I did hear a digital mode underneath briefly (closer to the actual 9216 freq.) although it was weak.  That must of been what I heard.  I started recording it again around 15:45z today & will let it run for 24hrs. just to see what the signal looks like for the period.

I have a very weak signal at 2050 UTC, could be an SSB QSO?

Did a quick scan of my recording so far and found a short digital tx over the top of the buzzer at 22:57z-22:58z...I'm slightly off tuned to the 9215.5 USB freq, but it sounds like ALE:

So far the buzzer tx has been non stop - still going strong at 15:45z this morning (9-11-18).

I propose this buzzer be dubbed the cow, or bovine buzzer.
Also, anyone do a tdoa on it? I don't have a java whatsit installed so I can't join in the fun.
