Nightly europirate interference with 4625u buzzer
« on: January 21, 2022, 1708 UTC »
Guessing Ukranian guy.  Plays Metallica, Rammstein, etc.  Frequent images in the waterfall.  He has quite the signal and has been on the last few evenings so probably again tonight.
Vice picked it up

I'd stick an image or two here but I don't use photo junk online.  Be prepared for mangled English spelling and penises.

Music at 0805z. QRM at 0808z. Music at 0815z. Via the live stream at YT:

I had the usual beeps earlier with my R-2000 and 31' vertical, though the frequency is the typical nighttime tropical band static and crashing right now. I might fair better with a SDR and active antenna, but that would mean venturing across the house. Maybe later.

Music at 0254z. Direct reception here at the QTH via the 31' vertical. S5+ peaks. Strong modulation with considerable dynamic compression. Usual beeps mixed during fades.

A good signal from the Buzzer on 4625 at 2218 UTC 24 Jan 2022, along with music from one of the pirates in the background.  Best here on the 500 ft beverage aimed to Europe.
