Still using the same alternating (rtty45/sitor mode a FEC) between each news item about.
Multipsk uses Amtor FEC-Navtex for the sitor a mode.
Thanks for the heads up
Didn't know that multipsk used Amtor FEC-Navtex for sitor, glad for the info

It does here unless the broadcaster has labeled the broadcast wrong or it is wrong in Multipsk!
I can't honestly say that I've ever listened too sound sample of both to compare with what WLO sounds like when using the sitor mode.

Good luck in trying to capture their signal!

I'm getting WLO news via SITOR-B 170hz/100bd on 8473.0 KHz. Running news reports on the Republican primaries. Great decode and good signal.

Thanks,

No wonder I could not get WLO in SITOR-B, MultiPSK only has a SITOR-A button! I can't believe I never noticed the lack of a B after SITOR. For that matter, I never noticed the A either apparently

Amtor FEC-Navtex works fine for SITOR-B reception though.

Too noisy for my little G6 around here, but they stream so here's my set-up for ITTY ;-) I don't have a computer with my radio equipment, but I do have a TV connected to the network via a Western Digital Live Hub.

Synology DiskStation acting as a DLNA server-->Western Digital Live Hub-->MFJ-462B. May add a printer to the MFJ. ;-)


In case you're wondering:

My directions using DSM 3.2 for setting up a Synology DiskStation. Any DLNA device will pick up the stream, i.e. internet radios, PS3, blu-ray players etc.

1. Ensure DLNA server is enabled. Control Panel->Application Settings->Media Server->Enable DLNA/UPnP media server.

2. Create the stream. Audio Station->Add Radio Station->Under URL type http://65.243.191.51:8000/listen.pls for the General News Bulletins (they call this one ITTY). Enter a name, description is optional. Select OK. For the one they call Internet Teletype National Channel enter http://65.243.191.51:8040/listen.pls (The feed for the internet autostart is http://65.243.191.51:8030/listen.pls)

3. Fire up your streaming device and select the stream, capture your audio and put it in the decoder of your choice.

My Directions for using a Western Digital Live Hub as a streaming appliance for ITTY using a Synology NAS with DSM 3.2

1. Set up NAS as DLNA server for stream (see above)
2. on WD Live Hub: Music->Select Content Source->Media Server->DiskStation->Music->Internet Radio->User-defined Stations->select whatever you named it.
3. Fire up your decoder, capture the audio-good to go.

As of today, it is still sending only high seas weather for the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico.

I did send them an e-mail asking about the news feed but, I have not received a response as yet. If I do get an answer, I will post it here.

Default Signal Report sent to WLONEWS@olypen.com but address bombed

Hi Folks
I want to tell you I recived excellent SITOR and RTTY weather broadcast at 9-10 am CST on frequency 4872 kHz and still going strong. I live in Abbeville, Louisania using a 100 ft dipole, Radio Shack DX-440. I am using TrueTTY software. 100 percent reception and siganl level 5/5 (my meter has 5 LEDs!)

I've have 2 wave files for you but as a new member, I need to figure out how upload them.

The original intent of this old thread was to announce that WLO was, at one time, relaying news items, not just weather information. Still, it's useful information to know that these weather broadcasts are continuing, particularly since we'll be getting into the hurricane season in a couple of months.

I suspect the news items were something of an experiment, and not many folks responded - so end of experiment...Mike
