"HOMER" UNID now on 12088 khz USB 16:25 utc 1-7-13
« on: January 07, 2013, 1629 UTC »
16:25 utc Just found it on 12088 khz.  Same loop same timing off an on.
12,088.5 khz - I agree - sounds like Homer again now...
I noticed the other signal (~13570 USB) is still running simultaneously.

I wonder if there are any others? -  someone possibly with considerable Tx resources?

Saw the videos; this screams military/intelligence test of some sort - unless it's just some guy with a rig that has excellent audio and he really likes how Homer Simpson's voice sounds in USB.

Let's flip a coin on this one. . . .

This exact traffic was also reported, on 8051.5 USB (reported as 8051.35 then), back in June of 2012.  I think the fact it was on at least 3 freqs at one time, at least 2 of them with 15+ kHz wide audio, would get it away from the realm of a guy who like the Simpsons with a rig that has excellent audio.

It reminds me of the "Yosemite Sam" station of a few years ago,multiple frequencies and lots of power.

I remember correctly, it was later discovered "Sam" was being transmitted from a military facility in New Mexico.
