• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have not listened to shortwave in years and picked up something on SSB. It appears to be on 5.615 - 5.620.

I did a search on the net and found someone else asking the question back in 2006, but no one replied to him.


He heard the same thing, 2 tones , and some kind of talk, but I can't quite tune in.


Thanks,

if I had to guess you probably heard Gander Radio on 5616 kHz USB mode.
The 2 tones you heard was most likely a SELCAL check.

That must be it. I was able to get the frequency to sound good at about 5.619 SSB.

I heard American Airlines mentioned and most of the time could only hear the Control Tower.
