Jetzt um 08 UTC ist natürlich großflächig auch toooote Hose
im 41 mb Broadcast Band in Zentralasien.

R Afghanistan International 8 Hertz tiefer als heute Nacht bei Sendebeginn.

7599.873 kHz um 08.15 UT, dünnes -97dBm Signal, aber immer noch die stärkste

Antenne.

Die anderen 41 mb Signale sind noch schwächer, aber alle auf genauer

Die US AGM Monitoring Log Tabellen zeigen als Lokationsstandort (XXX)

Die Frequenzangaben in dieser Collage basieren auf Deinen Messungen.
Der Qatar4-SDR empfängt anscheinend etwa 54 Hz zu tief.
Als die Greyline ~ durch ARM/Katar ging gab es einen kurzzeitigen
signifikanten Feldstärkeanstieg.
ARM von 1430-0230z ist damit ziemlich sicher.
Etwas unklar noch die Lage 0230-1430, könnte Tashkent sein, oder etwas
aus Tajikistan.
Leider gibt es keine guten Tageslicht-Ressoucen für TDoA für 7600 kHz.

Fw: The Desert Whooper Beacon 4095.65 KHz - Corrections  View Printable Version 
Saturday, August 21 2021

HCDX


----- Forwarded Message ----- From: Desert_Whooper <desert_whooper@protonmail.com>To: wghauser@yahoo.com <wghauser@yahoo.com>Sent: Thursday, August 19, 2021, 06:37:05 PM GMT+1Subject: The Desert Whooper Beacon 4095.65 KHz - Corrections
Hello Glenn!

In your August 4th logs a person offered some incorrect information about DW's transmit format. For your readers' interest, here are some technical details of the one watt beacon that provides fascinating propagation performance.

The beacon started development in November of 2020. It was built from scratch and has a hybrid controller consisting of two 555 CMOS timers to key the transmitter along with an Arduino Nano controller to generate Morse code and collect data for performance telemetry. The 555 timers will independently key the transmitter if the Nano fails for any reason. (Fortunately the Nano has functioned for 10 months without issue.) The 4.09565 MHz transmitter is crystal controlled and features a MV1403 varactor diode circuit for the upward frequency sweeps of 150 Hertz. The sweeps provide distinctive audio for the SWL'er as well as an easy to spot visual pattern on the waterfall display of Kiwi SDRs. The transmitter has 4 transistors and the final amplifier is a IRF510 MosFet followed by a low pass filter, all inside a shielded box.

The beacon is powered by a sealed lead acid battery which is kept charged with a solar panel. The battery is protected from over discharge by a low voltage disconnect (LVD) circuit that is independent of the Nano. Time has shown that the solar panel size provides good charge current even in cloudy weather and the beacon does not draw much battery power overnight.

The antenna is a 111 foot long, 1/2 wave dipole oriented North/South and it's about 0.1 wavelength above the dry desert soil to create a more vertical but omni-like pattern. The 1:1 balun is home made and the antenna's measured VSWR is close to 1.1 to 1 

There are six cycles of DW in Morse along with 29-30 "whoops";  then the DW identification is sent along with four different telemetry numbers.

Telemetry is in slow Morse code as follows:

BAT is the battery's voltage to tenths of a volt using a precision resistor divider and the Nano's A2D function. Normal values range from 12.8 to 14.4 volts
OTMP is in degrees F with a calibrated 10k NTC thermistor located outdoors, about 100' from the beacon.
ITMP is in degrees F provided by a digital one-wire DS18B20 microLAN sensor located within the weathertight equipment box. The reading runs 5 to 10 deg warmer than OTMP.
PV is given in milliAmps to monitor solar panel performance and battery charge current. Measurements are based on an INA219 current sensor board. The values of the current can range from 0 to 2000. Note that a value of 4 or 5 is just the idle current consumed by the solar controller because the battery is fully charged.

In case the Nano fails, the number of whoops can decrease from 30 down to 29 as a crude measure of rising temperatures. On some recent days the internal temperature has peaked at 120 degrees F when outside air temperature was measured at 112 degrees! The box is in shade but the electronic circuitry generates waste heat that causes the temperature rise. Monitoring the temperatures during night and day provides for some interesting deltas..

DW was officially deployed to the Western desert on February 21, 2021. It has been heard in Canada, California, Hawaii, Maryland, Utah, Arizona and many other locations. Some SWL logs can be seen here:  https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php?board=9.0 ; and eQSLs are being provided.

Best regards,

The DW Team

WMR 15790 back on the air  View Printable Version 
Saturday, August 21 2021

HCDX

As from today World Music Radio (WMR) is back on 15790 kHz (Saturday-Sunday
07-20 UTC) but with 10 Watts only.

The 927 outlet in Hvidovre, Copenhagen, went off the air on August 16th. Is
expected back on the air on September 2nd.

The two other frequencies of WMR - 5930 kHz (200W) and 25800 kHz (100W)
continuous transmitting round the clock. Also Radio208 is on the air
continuously on 1440 kHz (currently half power: 250W) and 5970 kHz (100W)

Something`s always wrong at WMR/Radio208 - but still keeping SW and MW
alive.

No nothing from WMR on 15790 kHz this weekend. It may take some time before
WMR is back on 15790. Meanwhile WMR is still audible 24/7 on 927, 5930 and
25800 kHz.

Something`s always wrong at WMR/Radio208 - but still keeping SW and MW

A friendly request if perhaps we could avoid phantom discussions? Just one
hour ago "mediumwave" has elsewhere been mentioned in connection with
Afghanistan International, but still without any confirmation of such a
transmission. Thus I fear the chatter really gets out of hand. So far I
have not seen any reports about real observations or at least
announcements
of such transmissions, and it would be useful if any would be clearly
described as such.

Concerning 7600 kHz see

https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2021/08/afghanistan-international-tv-on-75998v.html

So the speculative scenario is 0230-1430 = Tashkent and 1430-0230 = Gavar.
(And by the way, it now should be clear that the Iran International
transmissions could be shared between these two transmitter operators as
well, rather than being moved to Uzbekistan completely. Perhaps they
always > were.)

The own Iran International report about launching Afghanistan
International appears to be a bit misleading, too. The real scenario seems
to be nine hours of live programming a day (with a possibility that they
have during the last days already ramped it up) with the remainder of the
day filled with repeats. So the playout seems to stay on air continuously
(or have any breaks been observed?), and it is always the accompanying
audio of this TV program that is being relayed on 7600 kHz.


And one personal remark: You don't see every day a town a mere 15
kilometres away (Doberlug-Kirchhain) mentioned by CNN...
