4110 Whooper-Type Signal At 1035z
« on: January 22, 2022, 1039 UTC »
At 1035z on 22 Jan 2022 on 4110 I am hearing a signal similar to the Desert Whooper's "whoop", but with no CW characters.  It is about one second long, with a one second pause between transmissions.

A pirate beacon or a utility signal of some kind?

I just ran across this one too at 4109.56 and the whoop is a slow downward sweep as opposed to DW's faster upward sweep.

Anyhow, I believe you caught a new pirate beacon first. Congratulations!

For the first time in two weeks, I'm hearing it again on 4109.6 at 0830z here in Santa Barbara.  Still no CW in five minutes of listening.

That was the Coast Slider undergoing tests at the secret beaconpop test range last month. Wow, good ears, l0ngwire!
