4089 kHz dasher, 7/2/19 1647Z
« on: July 02, 2019, 1647 UTC »
Found a new one (to me): a dasher on 4089, 30 dashes per second, each dash about 0.4 seconds long. Anyone else log this one?

[edited to correct the dash rate].

Can you give us a bit more information? Such as, approximate UTC time, approximate area from which the signal was heard, and mode used (CW, AM, USB). Also, was "30 dashes per second" a typo? Did you mean 30 dashes per minute?

Date and time in the message subject: 4089 kHz, 7/2/19, 1647Z.

Heard on the N7DM KiwiSDR in Pahrump, NV. Mode CW, 500 Hz BW. Not heard on any adjacent SDRs.

And yes, I  typoed. 30 dashes/minute, not 30 dashes/second. Dash duration was about 0.4 second.

Thanks. I'll use that info to check on that frequency from time to time using the Pahrump KiwiSDR. If I catch the signal, I'll make a recording.
