UNID 13570 khz USB 14:56 utc 1-7-13
« on: January 07, 2013, 1505 UTC »
Very strange UNID 13570 USB
Tuned into this at 14:56 ut  S6 - S7
Repeating loop "What the hell are you reading (Bush?) for?
The audio is going off (~8 seconds)and on (~3-4 seconds) with the same loop running continuously.
15:00 utc Now running on top of an AM sig.
(USB sig. was all alone or background AM sig was very low when I first noticed the SSB sig and tuned into this.)
15:20 utc currently under a CODAR signal but still audible.
15:58 utc  AM sig both under and adjacent are off now - I tweaked the tuning and clearly hear Homer and "books" now.

Come to think of it what an appropriate phrase for intel op to use ;)

Enough audio - but between the music, Codar , and this message what an interesting loop this might be for a DJ mix...

Went of this frequency at 16:39 utc - was simultaneous on 12088.5 khz for a few? minutes.

I have it here as well.

It seems to be Homer Simpson saying "What the hell you reading books for", thanks to Token. The pitch is off when tuned to 13570, tuning to 13570.1 makes it sound more like Homer.

Very strange indeed!

FWIW - I think 13570 is WINB at this time?

As per Token, this same message was heard yesterday on 8051.5 USB from 1634 until 1743 UTC.

Yes, I was wondering that. Or perhaps another Son of Yosemite Sam ?

A recording of about a minute of todays 13570 kHz TX.  Note the very wide audio, over 15 kHz wide, this ain't your daddy's ham rig returned.

When I heard this station yesterday my wife was actually the one who commented that it sounded like Hommer Simpsons voice ;)
