    Oxford Shortwave Log



    Published on Apr 13, 2017
    Hi there, only the second time I've copied this transmission from South Korea on the 75 metre broadcast band. Always a challenge to hear them at all, let alone well, so it was really pleasing to catch them again on both portables. As always, please let me know how you think they performed - another close call!

    Recorded at the woods in Oxford on 26/03/17 at 16:30 hrs UTC. using a 30 metre longwire. Thanks for watching.

    The end of FM radio: 'New golden age' of digital broadcasting could see the traditional signal scrapped this year
    • 48 million adults listen to more than 1 billion hours of radio in the UK each week
    • Rather than buying traditional radio to tune to FM, people are moving to digital
    • Now, analysts predict digital listeners will become the majority within a year
    • Government to undertake a review which could result in FM being switched off

    TRRS #1172 - Shortwave Reception - Poor Today

    Published on Apr 14, 2017
    Reception this afternoon on HF bands are really poor. Part of the cause of the noise maybe caused by the lack of rain and static in the air. Here is the website I was showing that provides a continuous update of HF band conditions. It also indicates band conditions.

    Icom IC 471A All mode UHF 70 cm ham transceiver
    LifeIsTooShortForQRP



    Published on Apr 14, 2017
    This is the Icom IC-471 transceiver from the late eighties. It is an all-mode UHF transceiver for the 70 cm ham band. Output power is 25 watts. It covers a 20 MHz span from 430 MHz to 450 MHz. Smallest step size that it can do is 10 Hz from a digital systhesizer. The rig is built very well with great eye for detail. I remember this rig to cost some serious bucks at the time, as a student I could not afford it in the days. As you can see from the video, it still performs excellent. The radio can actually be used today without limitations because Icom factory-equipped it with a PL tone generator. A good move at the time, because without it one would not have been able to access FM amateur repeaters today.

    The 1st Signal Brigade ("First to Communicate") is a military communications brigade of the United States Army subordinate to the Eighth United States Army and located at Yongsan Garrison in South Korea...

    History
    Vietnam War

    The 1st Signal Brigade was activated on 1 April 1966 in the Republic of Vietnam. The brigade's mission in Vietnam was to originate, install, operate, and maintain a complex communication system that fused tactical and strategic communications in Southeast Asia under a single, unified command. The formation of the brigade brought together three signal groups that were already in South Vietnam.

    At the peak of the Vietnam War the brigade consisted of more than 21,000 soldiers, in six Signal groups (including the 160th Signal Group), 22 signal battalions and several communications agencies, making the 1st Signal Brigade the largest signal unit in the U.S. Army at the time.

    South Korea to present

    In November 1972 the brigade was relocated to the Republic of Korea under the U.S. Army Strategic Communications Command. On 29 January 1973 the 1st Signal Brigade was reestablished by General Order 56 from HQ, USASTRATCOM. The brigade's mission in South Korea is to provide communications support to the United Nations Command, U.S. Forces Korea and the Eight U.S. Army. The brigade was also given the mission of installing, maintaining and operating the Defense Communications System in South Korea...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Signal_...

    ...Korean War and Vietnam War

    During the Korean War and Vietnam War the Signal Corps operated Officer Candidate Schools initially at Fort Monmouth...

    Modern warfare utilizes three main sorts of Signal soldiers. Some are assigned to specific military bases ("Base Ops"), and they are charged with installation, operation and maintenance of the base communications infrastructure along with hired civilian contracted companies. Others are members of non-Signal Army units, providing communications capability for those with other jobs to accomplish (e.g. infantry, medical, armor, etc.) in much the same way as, say, the unit supply sections, unit clerks, or chemical specialists. The third major sort of Signaleer is one assigned to a Signal unit. That is to say, a unit whose only mission is to provide communications links between the Army units in their area of operations and other signal nodes in further areas served by other Signal units.

    Sending radio signals across the vast Pacific Ocean had always been sketchy and unreliable. In August 1964, radio communications across the sea were given a huge boost in quality: The first satellite terminal ever installed in a combat zone was installed in Ba Queo, near Saigon, led by Warrant Officer Jack Inman. This enabled trustworthy communications to Hawaii, and thereby to Washington, D.C.

    From north to south, communicating across the varied landscapes of Vietnam presented a variety of challenges, from mountains to jungle. The answer came by utilizing the technology of "troposcatter". A radio signal beamed up into the atmosphere is "bounced" back down to Earth with astonishingly good results, bypassing debilitating terrain. The Army had little experience with this technology, so they contracted the development of the systems to Page Engineering. In January 1962, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara approved the system of troposcatter units under the operational name of BACKPORCH.

    The escalation of the number of troops in the Vietnam War caused an increasing need for more communications infrastructure. In the spring of 1966 the assorted Signal units were reassigned to the newly formed 1st Signal Brigade. By the close of 1968 this brigade consisted of six Signal groups, and 22 Signal battalions—roughly 23,000 soldiers...

    Yaesu FR 101S vintage shortwave ham receiver all mode
    LifeIsTooShortForQRP



    Published on Apr 15, 2017
    This is the vintage Yaesu FT-101S shortwave SSB/AM/CW receiver plus optional FM capability. This was sold during the early to mid Seventies, often with the accompanying FL-101 transmitter. It is an excellent design that still can compete well with today's radios, mostly because it pairs good sensitivity to excellent selectivity and large signal handling capabilities, the latter due to the use of a high-Q manually tunable preselector circuit in the front-end. It exhibits excellent sensitivity all the way into the 10 meter band due to the use of high gain dual-gate MOSFETs in the RF front-end. To summarize: An job well done from Yaesu

    Published on Apr 15, 2017
    Here is my decode of the VOA News radiogram broadcast today on 5745Khz shortwave radio at 0230UTC in MFSK16, and 32, and with 4 SSTV images. There is news of a Loud shrimp named after Pink Floyd, Azerbaijan internet censorship, Chinese cable TV censorship and an app for blind Hams. Signal was very strong mostly S9+20 with some fading. There were also some transmitter drop outs in the first part of the broadcast. The broadcast was received in Toronto on my Icom IC-R9500 radio and decoded with the Linux version of FLDIGI. Many thanks to Kim Andrew Elliot for another interesting broadcast.

    US Army Training Film TF11-3314

    Reupload of a previously uploaded film, in one piece instead of multiple parts, and with improved video & sound.

    Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    Radioteletype (RTTY) is a telecommunications system consisting originally of two or more electromechanical teleprinters in different locations, later superseded by personal computers (PCs) running software to emulate teleprinters, connected by radio rather than a wired link.

    The term radioteletype is used to describe:

    - either the entire family of systems connecting two or more teleprinters or PCs using software to emulate teleprinters, over radio, regardless of alphabet, link system or modulation,
    - or specifically the original radioteletype system, sometimes described as "Baudot".

    In some applications, notably military and government, radioteletype is known by the acronym RATT (Radio Automatic Teletype).

    Landline teleprinter operations began in 1849 when a circuit was put in service between Philadelphia and New York City. Émile Baudot designed a system using a five unit code in 1874 that is still in use today. Teleprinter system design was gradually improved until, at the beginning of World War II, it represented the principal distribution method used by the news services.

    Radioteletype evolved from these earlier landline teleprinter operations. The US Navy Department successfully tested printing telegraphy between an airplane and ground radio station in August 1922. Later that year, the Radio Corporation of America successfully tested printing telegraphy via their Chatham, MA radio station to the R.M.S. Majestic. An early implementation of the Radioteletype was the Watsongraph, named after Detroit inventor Glenn Watson in March 1931. Commercial RTTY systems were in active service between San Francisco and Honolulu as early as April 1932 and between San Francisco and New York City by 1934. The US Military used radioteletype in the 1930s and expanded this usage during World War II.. The Navy called radioteletype RATT (Radio Automatic Teletype) and the Army Signal Corps called radioteletype SCRT, an abbreviation of Single-Channel Radio Teletype. The Military used frequency shift keying technology and this technology proved very reliable even over long distances.

    From the 1980s, teleprinters were replaced by computers running teleprinter emulation software.

    Technical description of RTTY

    A radioteletype station consists of three distinct parts: The Teletype or teleprinter, the modem and the radio.

    The Teletype or teleprinter is an electromechanical or electronic device. The word "Teletype" was a trademark of the Teletype Corporation, so the terms "TTY", "RTTY","RATT" and "teleprinter" are usually used to describe a generic device without reference to a particular manufacturer.

    Electromechanical teleprinters were quite heavy, complex and noisy and they have been replaced with electronic units. The teleprinter includes a keyboard, which is the main means of entering text and a printer or visual display unit (VDU). An alternative input device is a perforated tape reader and, more recently, computer storage media (such as floppy disks). Alternative output devices are tape perforators and computer storage media...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teleprinter

    A teleprinter (teletypewriter, Teletype or TTY) is a electromechanical typewriter that can be used to communicate typed message...

    Teleprinters are now largely obsolete, though they are still widely used in the aviation industry (AFTN and airline teletype system), and variations called Telecommunications Devices for the Deaf (TDDs) are still used by the hearing impaired for typed communications over ordinary telephone lines. In computing teleprinters have been replaced by fully electronic computer terminals which usually use a display screen instead of a printer, though the term "TTY" is still occasionally used to refer to them, such as in Unix systems

    VOA Radio 2003 - Talk to America - Navy Seals Training [audio]
    Ilya B



    Published on Apr 16, 2017
    Radio is one of my occasional interests, so here is Voice of America radio with a January 2003 Talk To America show on Navy Seals Fitness Training originally received in early January 2003 but digitized from a cassette tape and uploaded today for all radio nuts out there.

    I hope you will find it interesting and/or amusing.

    Talk to America is / was a long-running program on VOA airing every weekday but I don't think many overseas people actually called it.

    While VOA broadcast and still broadcasts on shortwave, I think this is more likely to be a MW reception.
