Number station 9.330mhz
« on: December 21, 2020, 0741 UTC »
Same old number station I have heard for years. Spanish female voice rattling off numbers in the middle of rough jamming noise?
sirio 827 5/8 10-12 meter vertical. Approximately 30 feet high, 40 feet of rg8, and at the highest elevation in town.

Look up "Cuban HM01 numbers station", that is what you are describing, and 9330 kHz is one of their long standing frequencies.  You could look here:   https://priyom.org/number-stations/digital/hm01

The "jamming" noise is not jamming, rather it is digital data sent by the station.

The below is not being a spelling/grammar Nazi, just an FYI if you did not already know.  I don't particularly care if you use the right units or not, that is up to you.

We all know what you meant by "mhz", it is in somewhat common, if incorrect, use, however the format is wrong and does not mean what you think it means (shades of Inigo Montoya there).  MegaHertz is written MHz (capital M, Capital H).  When you write it with a small "m" you are actually saying "milliHertz".  Since both are real things, it can't be both.  9.330 mHz is real and is a different frequency different from 9.330 MHz.
