0115 UTC The ute is overwhelming on 6942 USB, but I have weak audio using LSB
0118 UTC SSTV but no decode here...started as Robot 36 before it stopped
(The T-storm static is really bad here)
0123 UTC Music coming up to noise level but can't tell what's playing
0129 UTC Still monitoring but no joy here
0140 UTC Now even the carrier is weak.
Thanks for trying but only fragments came through this evening. Between the ute and the storm static, it's a no go.  :(


I believe 6942 is possibly the worst frequency to use in the 43 meter band.
Link-11 (Also known as ALLIGATOR, STANAG 5511, TADIL-A, MIL-STD-6011, and MIL-STD-188-203-1A) is a Tactical Data Link standard (formerly known as Tactical Digital Information Link (TADIL) used by NATO and the US Military for Maritime Tactical Data Exchange.

Very weak on all the KiwiSDR’s I have checked but best on North Raleigh, NC KiwiSDR. Listening in LSB to avoid QRM from utilities. Music and talk.

0118 UTC-SSTV, no doubt to weak to decode
0119 UTC-Talk?
0119 UTC-Music, to weak to ID
0122 UTC-Piano then talk
0123 UTC-Redemption Song by Bob Marley
0127 UTC-Brief talk
0127 UTC-Music
0131 UTC-Talk, then music
0135 UTC-Talk then more music

01:25 UTC - Nothing in my part of the world. This is a LINK 11 UTE frequency which is active 24/7 and currently at an S8 signal level. This is a very poor choice of a frequency to be operating on.
