I listen to him when I can.

Heard him a lot more lately as I just finished a BC-455A receiver which powers a 15" speaker (AA5 output transformer added before I purchased receiver) and receives Cuba quite well.

I just did a quick count-up and I have 9 BC band stations that produce at least something each week that is worth listening to, with power outputs varying from 1W up to the big 50,000W monsters. Not sure I've ever heard the 1W station when its only using 1W - it's 1000W during the day ! I consider myself fortunate though.

Could you please list your "Nine" for us Chris?
Many of us may be able to catch them.

TIA,

Chuck

OK - I made a small .pdf file up - here is a link for it, good for 7 days : http://www.yousendit.com/download/WUJhU ... UkZjR05Vag

I think some of these shows, like 'Hollywood 360' for example, are franchised and likely available from several stations across the US

Out of curiosity, I looked up the transmitter data online.

If anyone can hear that 1 Watt transmitter in Lake Geneva after dark, I would love to know !


Best Regards,

Chris

Would it be possible to convince everybody to use UTC when posting their reception times? Just 'cos it's 2.30pmEST when you received this transmitter from Bulgaria doesn't mean a thing to all those people outside the US and we need the time at the transmitter site, not wherever EST is. Most SWL'ers and DX'ers have a digital clock near their listening post set to UTC, so it ain't hard! :wink:

I think it would be a good idea if everyone on the
web used Zulu time. The web runs 25-7-365, it's hard
to keep up whit what time it is everywhere.

[quote="davep"]Pirate, 6925 ssb.."Undercover radio" [quote]

Tried tuning it on my DX-150 and picked it up clearly, listening to it now, but getting noisy after 15 minutes. Thanks for the info!

Time 04:45 UTC, or Beer-Thirty UBT (Universal Beer Time)

Just sent him a reception report and he read it shortly after. "Wow, South Dakota!" he said. LOL Talking about his memories of the state now.

I agree. PST would be fine with me. That way I only have to adjust for one hour when we go to Daylight Savings Time. :wink:

Hi Dave, I caught short bits of his acknowledging my email, but his signal was iffy and competing with some noise from my confuser nearby. He sure got to rambling on, he lost his pre-taped music on his laptop, so he just winged it. I listened till he finally pulled the switch. That was kinda like when my wife and her sisters chat on the phone. Goodbyes take as long as the actual talking. He'd get another email and go another 10 minutes longer. Seemed like he had a co-host or someone sharing the band with him for awhile, but I'm not sure due to fading.

From what I understood he's mobile in some monster 4-wheeler. Quite open about what he's doing. I think this thread may have sent him some listeners!

You already made my point. You and most others have said nothing of interest and its almost two pages since yours. Listeners want real time reports, not a lot of blabbering in the day and a half since your post.

That is why the DX Sherlock and other URL's are popular, its a one way reporting format and no blabbering where everyone feels the compulsion to have to comment :roll:
Try it some time if you are actually interested in listening instead of typing :shock:

This thread is for commenting on general broadcast listening for SM, AM-BCB and FM .... period. We're running this to determine "if" there is any interest, and if there is, "what" the interest is. If you aren't interested in what the others have to say, then ignore it. If you wish to comment, do so. Policing the thread is not your concern.

Any and all comments related to what was heard, where, what time, on what radio, if you enjoyed it, what the content was, etc, etc, etc ... are welcome in this thread.

John

Not of interest to you obviously, so why comment?

It is very obvious that you know nothing of my listening interests.

For those that actually listen, here are a couple of links I like to use:

http://www.geocities.jp/binewsjp/ Notice there are 5 pages of links.

http://www.hfcc.org/data/b12/index.phtml

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/shortwave-radio/

http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/am-broa ... l-channels

http://www.am-dx.com/fcclist.htm

IF there is interest I'll post a few more.

Carl

Pirate, 6925
While I was tuning around listening for the station at 6925 kHz I tripped over another station briefly at 6940 KHz USB that was transmitting Slow Scan Television. I didn't have time to flip on the SSTV application to see what was being transmitted and it didn't come back so I moved on.

It was clearly analog SSTV and not something else, but I was left wondering, "Why?"

Edit to add: Amazing what you find out on Google: http://erick_cartman.home.mchsi.com/PirateSSTV.htm

Good on yer, Carl.

Here's one that I use for reference all the time, as it combines EiBi, HFCC and Eoki all in one spreadsheet, gives a whole raft of information, easily sorted into "who's on now" and is the most up-to-date info around....

http://www.hfskeds.com/skeds/

....the current one has the date 2nd November. Try and beat that with "MT" or any printed info! :wink:
