0214 Just tuning in, signal is unfortunately weak here.
0250 still hearing audio below the noise. It was SIO 111 at best over the course of the past 34 minutes.

Signal is just barely making it above the noise floor. Sometimes the music makes a bit of an appearance but never for long. Great to see you are on the air tonight. I'm hearing a bit at the moment.

Probably the reason the frequency was so interference free, is that it was on the international maritime distress frequency 4125 kHz.

Probably best to avoid that in the future, Mix Radio International.

  • Effective Jan 01, 2005 U.S. Coast Guard long range communications stations NMF, NMN, NMA, NMG, NMC, NMO, NOJ and NRV changed their single sideband voice radio guard to the following simplex frequencies: 4125, 6215, 8291, and 12290 kHz. These frequencies are intended for initial voice contact and distress alerts and working only.

There was a captive audience: the Coast Guard monitors that freq 24/7.

<sarcasm> To step in bigger doodoo, try 5000 kHz, 3330 kHz, or maybe 11175. </sarcasm> :)

do you think that could explain all the non english chatter on frequency after mix went off air ;-)

SDR recording catch:
0040 4134 USB, transmitting what seems like noise at different bandwidths. Perhaps calibrating equipment? Strong signal
0042 Off
0056 4131 AM, carrier but no audio.
0057 Off
0058 4131 USB with the noise again.
0101 Off
0102 On
0104 Off
0109 4125 USB more noise
0114 Off
0117 Music started, solid SIO 555. Maybe closer to 4125.05 ?
0137 Stevie Wonder "Superstition"  Thank you  8)
0152 Shout out to me, back to the music
0204 Starting to fade a little now, but still good

FWIW, it should also be noted that I hear plenty of 'other' activity on 6215 +/- where it would seemingly cause interference: peskies, utes, whatever.

Peskies (fishing vessels) belong there.
6215 is maritime ITU channel 606.
