    These radios are for the Amateur radio market and should not be used or marketed for preppers. Price is not everything.

    Published on Feb 4, 2017
    I recorded using the Xcorder program the Marine band for several hours. Very active probably due to using the correct antenna for a change. LOL

    Published on Feb 5, 2017
    Elliot Ness done in Tampa Bay Florida coming in here tonight to southwestern Ohio with the 9/30 DB signal.

    This is my DAK 10 CB radio that was broken for 2 to 3 years but is now repaired it up and running.
    The only thing that is been modded is the clarifier that has been opened up. Or use an old Antron 99 for an antenna

Date and time: 23:58 1/30/2017 - 00:05 1/31/2017 UTC. Transmission distance: about 7,800 miles or 12,500 km. Some birds and vehicles are heard in this outdoor recording. Sorry, for this field recording I didn't bring a tripod along.

    MW DX: a huge indoor signal from WMEX Boston Talk Radio 1510 kHz
    Oxford Shortwave Log



    Published on Feb 7, 2017
    Hi there, a huge indoor signal from WMEX with the Wellbrook ALA1530 and Elad FDM DUO. Their signal is, of course, one of the strongest to be heard in Europe, but this was unprecidented. I employed a 9 kHz audio bandwidth filter and it's a shame there was a signal of on 1512 kHz of sufficient strength h to cause a heterodyne whistle, but nevertheless, what a huge signal on the Elad/Wellbrook combo. Recorded in Oxford UK on 09/12/16 at 04:58 hrs UTC. Thanks for watching.

    Belorussian Lady 0 0 0 0 0 Numbers Station! S06s
    Mary Johnson Shortwave Listener



    Published on Feb 7, 2017
    A numbers station commonly thought to be in the Russian language and from Ukraine, but is in fact speaking in the Slavic numbers common to all Slavic languages with a Belorussian dialect. Source: Spectrum analysis of the station's voice compared with automated telecom voices from Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus, as well as consultations with people from all three countries and a triangulation that points it to an ambiguous area around the Ukraine-Belarus border.

    This station has very short messages compared to others and could be more to describe the status of a mission, or perhaps relating to an as of yet undiscovered data broadcast. It is related to an English station from Ukraine or perhaps also Belarus, E17z.

    So had a great QSO with Marlowe this morning at 1438z on 10.112 02-09-17 with 3.84 watts out on the YouKits EK1C. I am still learning how and where the cameras need to be for picking up this display on the rig, it is an odd color and pixel rate. QSB was heavy and at times hard to hear Marlowe on the external speaker. Thanks Marlowe for qso.
