woke up @ 0230 local time to make a bottle for my one year old. randomly turned, on my grundig g3 and somehow hit the 49m band - and i hear this. my first numbers transmission heard on my radio, live. prior to this, i had only read about this famous Cuban phenomenon. Been into this just for 2 weeks now. Just getting into using SSB now.

again: 5898 kHz @ 0832-0841 UTC on 13 december 2011   i did not catch the beginning. this creeped out my wife bigtime! hehe.

Heard here in Australia at good levels most evenings.  Heard at 0700 UTC on 5883 kHz , 0800 on 5898 kHz, and 1000 UTC on 9240 kHz. Last night the 0800 BC was very strong,.  I used to hear V2a on 8186, 8146, 7885, and 5868 kHz but haven't copied it on those frequencies for a couple of months.   :o
