All over 6 meters. 10 minute intervals, 60 second tx
« on: June 07, 2022, 2045 UTC »
Hi: Iím in Jersey.  Ií ve been monitoring 50.293, 6M WSPR frequency.  Every10 minutes, on the 5th minute, Iím hearing 60 seconds of something. It sounds like a pulsing buzz. Maybe 5 pulses per second.
4:05, 4:15, 4:25, etc. Sometimes it sounds stronger than others.
I though it was splatter from some nearby digital operator. I used a SDR and scanned from 0 to over 200MHz in that 60 seconds, looking at a 2MHz window, and I seen nothing significant.  Then, on the next 10 minute interval, I scanned 440. Nothing overpowering. It seems to be strongest on 6, but itís a 6 meter antenna.
Tnx, Harry

BTW, it starts at about 15 seconds after the minute, and ends at 13.

Found the source! It’s my old LED clock! When the last digit is ‘4’, it makes this noise in my radio.
