Hi all,

received a number of US signals today here in Ireland via multi hop Sporadic E - first time this has ever happened to me. I'm usually chasing stuff further up in Frequency during summer.

I wonder can anyone help with identifying some weak signals heard on 46.46.

There may have been two dispatches heard both had quite low audio and lots of fading.

There were mentions of

"brush 8"

"brush 18"

"319 first responders" (might have misheard this)

"392 response check"

I wonder do any of these details ring a bell with anyone.

It would be great to nail this one, although I know its a long shot. Via E Skip this stuff is even more of a buzz than via F2!

These were most likely north eastern US.

regards and hope someone can help.

On my way to get a sandwich and my car radio was screaming with big Texas DX! (and others) Many of them at full quieting and rich stereo.

Here is my logs: Start time 1445 cdt. with abrupt end near 1600. MUF was right at 100.1.

92.3-KOFX-El Paso, nice mix of Old School oldies with remote from National Furniture Liquidators
93.1-KSII-El Paso, KISS FM with a Whataburger commercial and Various Hit music.
93.3-WLWI-I-92 Country-Montgomery, Alabama
93.9-KMXR-Corpus Christie with Neil Diamond-"Sweet Caroline"
95.5-KYOT-The Mountain, Phoenix, with Train-"Soul Sister"
95.7-KKHH-Hot 95.7 Houston
97.1-KEGL-Dallas/Ft.Worth

Many other catches coming through, but naturally, they would fade out before I could get a positive ID. Also noteworthy, quite a few Mexican stations battling it out in the mix too.

Logged WWV on 25.000 MHz.

--

From the ARRL Website:
WWV’s 25 MHz Signal Back on the Air
04/07/2014

WWV silenced its 25 MHz signal in 1977, but it’s back on the air “for old times’ sake” — officially on an “experimental basis.” Resurrecting the long-dormant standard time outlet operated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was Matt Deutch, N0RGT, the Lead Electrical Engineer at WWV. It all came about after Dean Lewis, W9WGV, lamented the loss of the 25 MHz signal in an e-mail to Deutch, who surprised him by subsequently putting the signal back on the air on April 4 for about 3-1/2 hours.

A listener in Scotland posted his reception of the WWV 25 MHz signal on YouTube.

WWV began another 25 MHz test starting on April 7, and Deutch told ARRL that WWV-25 probably will remain on the air for the rest of the week. “So hopefully a few more people will hear it,” he said.

Lewis said he’d told Deutch late last week that 10 meter propagation has been so good at this point in Cycle 24, and he uses the various WWV frequencies as propagation beacons on a daily basis.

“He responded that ‘for old times’ sake,’ they’d put the [25 MHz] signal back on the air for a while. I assumed, of course, that he was kidding, and so I didn’t check. Matt wasn’t kidding!”

NIST said the 25 MHz broadcast consists of the normal WWV signal heard on all other WWV frequencies, at the same level of accuracy. The transmitter in Fort Collins, Colorado, can put out 2500 W into a “broadband monopole,” although Deutch said the transmitter was running 1200 W. WWV has invited listeners’ comments and signal reports.

Today Mar 24 about 19:00 Hrs Pacific from Lake Tahoe Nevada
i was logging all the Japanese or Other Asian traffic which was booming in just as the sun was getting ready to set and (33.250 MHz/150.0 Hz) a female spoke in very clear english "Mustang Zero-Six" this is "Guardian Radio" i looked up callsigns and didnt help much.
It just made me wonder if Osan Airbase in S Korea was coming in along with Asian comms from 29 MHz
thru 36 MHz.?????

Anybody heard of this callsign?
Im continuing to search everything related to try and figure it out.
Never heard it before at same time Asian Traffic was full quieting.

Musical type signalling. It has been showing up on other frequencies as well. At one point it was continuous for ten minutes at least.

30.5 talking about locksat being due and sweeping a leg etc... really strange sounding stuff.

Talking now about switching your outside leg to 3700 of ROV frequency. They have a 151.4 (150) tone and sound Military but nothing like any US military I've heard. Possibly Canadian.

I was in this location on Sunday, March 9, and picked up the following on just a BCD436HP and an Austin Spectra vehicle-mounted antenna.

Various hits on ham freqs 29.6, 29.62, 29.64, 29.66, and 29.68 MHz, with various tones.

29.77 with tone 146.2 - other than the tone, this matches Bushwick Car Service in Brooklyn, NY.

29.77 with no tone, had someone reciting numbers in Spanish. Now unsure if this was perhaps the car service reciting an address.

30.58 with tone 114.8 - tone does not match anyone. Spanish speaker with a phone ringing in the background. Taxi/car dispatch?

30.66 with tone 77.0 - sounded like the same as the freq above. Spanish and ringing phones.

30.68 with tone 100.0 - Could not tell what language other than it wasn't English. Could have been Spanish again.

30.74 with tone 107.2 - matches Bell Car Service in Brooklyn, NY. Of note is the fact this sounded like the same office (ringing phone sounded the same) as the above two/three "Spanish taxi guys".

31.06 with tone 91.5 - matches La Mexicana Express Car Service in Brooklyn, NY.

31.24 with tone 136.5 - matches Eastern Car Service in Brooklyn, NY. Geez, these car services are popular with low band....

31.44 with tone 100.0 - matches Continental Car Service in Brooklyn, NY.

31.96 with tone 82.5 - matches International Car Service in Brooklyn, NY.

33.16 with tone 77.0 - no matches with tone. Spanish again with telephones and numbers.

33.52 with tone 77.0 - no matches with tone. Too faint for me to detect what it actually was.

33.62 with tone 136.5 - matches Lower Providence Township FD Dispatch (PA).

33.70 with tone 151.4 - matches Cattaragus County FD (NY).

33.82 with tone 110.9 - matches Hubbardston FD, Worcester, MA.

33.82 with tone 141.3 - matches Calvert County (MD) FD. Possible reference to "Hickory Ridge Trail" in transmission.

33.90 with no tone - matches Lancaster, PA FD/EMS. Heard dispatch to Pittfield Township, 804 Estelle Drive.

33.94 with tone 179.9 - matches Waterford FD (New London, CT).

33.96 with no tone - matches Fire Alert for Westchester County, New Rochelle, NY. Heard Ambulance and Engine 25 sent to 1270 North Avenue.

35.04 with tone 110.9 - back to the car services again with 11th St Car Service in Brooklyn, NY.

35.10 with tone 141.3 - no match by tone, but again Spanish and telephones in the background, so presuming it's dispatch for all these car services in NYC.

35.32 with tone 141.3 - no match by tone, again, Spanish & telephones.

35.82 with tone 114.8 - matches Puerto Rican Car Service in Brooklyn, NY.
