RTTY etc, 6940-6950 11-6-12 2255Z
« on: November 06, 2012, 2258 UTC »
Noting that there has been a RTTY signal on about 6948 for several days...maybe weeks now. Audible day and night in GA/

Another modem or telemetry signal is now down around 6942. Seems as strong as the 6948 signal.

Freqs are approximate, I dont decodethese things, so those are ballpark freqs

Aha, I see our friend Link-11 is back on 6942 ish.

Yes, I've noticed the 6948 RTTY for a while also.  Also on 6834. The signal strengths vary in different ways, so likely different transmitter locations.

I've been hearing the RTTY in northern Canada as well. Signal so strong and steady I thought it might have been local. Good to know others are hearing it.
Please QSL to MaplRadio@gmail.com

Our new friend around 6950 is now just a single tone.

Noticed a little while ago that a new RTTY station showed up around 15020. That one is now also currently a single.

Perhaps that one and the one in 43m are related?

Its gone now (2321Z) too, and the one around 15020. Was there earlier today (the single tone, not the RTTY).

I noticed the 6950 station was back again, noted starting at 0604z on the SDR recording, with alternating mark/space frequencies. Weak signal. 6834 came back on at 0615z with a much stronger signal, just a carrier.  6950 went into traffic at 0629z, and went off the air at 0731z. 6834 went off the air at 0851z.

There seems to be yet another related station around 6990. It faded in with RTTY around 0553z  Went off at 0823z.
