Anybody in the southern states ever pick up the following station?

36.450 DCS 032 in Spanish.

I was in Aruba a few weeks ago and their was activity on this freq for a few days before fading out. Definitely not from the island.

Only low band I picked up during my stay other than a lot of CB activity from the southern states. I'd love to know what it was I was hearing if anyone can ID.

Thanks!!

Thanks for the comments AnalogLowband.
Slight opening today, mostly Spanish speaking in the 30-40 mhz range.

However, one thing of interest was 49.950 with pl of 151.4. This was monitored from Central Ky using a Pro 107, Win500 and a 6 meter Ringo Ranger. The first reference I see to this is at

Trashman43 like kkn50, you are doing a "very fine" job posting active frequencies. I'm sure like many appreciative RR members here I applaud both you guys and other members efforts to keep VHF low band monitoring not only alive but more so exciting in spite of all odds. Many of us who appreciate the time, patience and personal effort you and kkn50 dedicate to this aspect of the hobby are more then thankful, we are genuinely grateful. I also notice with appreciation that when you confirm your hits you document it on your post and when your not 100% sure as is your right and your right alone to post that your hits are "suspected" military in nature. I guess someone here missed that fact. All of you members here on RR that donate much of your personal time to pass on active frequencies you discover to others of us to discern their origin and nature of such are greatly revered. You guys are doing a wonderful thing. Keep up the good work and GOD bless.

I couldn't have said it better myself, so plz allow me to "ditto"

Thank u very much that's a great report, so it's still possible to log low band skip even in the low end of sunspot activity.

Thanks Tom I didn't know that. I'm buying an all band discone antenna so I hope that helps pull on some low band skip.

outta curiosity what leads you to :

31.175 PL 150.0 Ft. Mackall NC (possibly)

i am not contesting you judgement, just curious if something said contextually makes you think that etc. i live in radio range of the area. it would be a new one for me and i possibly could help (or more likely confuse) the identification if it was based on something you heard said.

Notes from a previous thread.

Not overseas but it is US mil. From Camp MacKall in North Carolina. The MGRS location that was passed matches with the reference to Freedom Village.
