Yep, and the sat link is also the source for the Firedrake CD that is out there, with one hour of CD quality Firedrake.ooh ok thanks token for all the great info! That explains why there was a youtube vid of a guy receiving the drake from satellite in crystal clear audio.
You are saying that Firedrake will be transmitting on more than their normal 10 to 12 maximum frequencies at a time? Or are you saying they will be jamming more hours a day but the same number of frequencies?Firedrake and other Chinese jammers will be increased until around the middle of February. Just as every year at this time there is a spike in jamming. The reason is simple. Every March the National People's Congress meet at the Great Hall Of The People in Beijing. Since every Communist Party of China rep will be in Beijing for the meeting, they always increase jamming. They have been doing this for years. it normally starts around November and December. It's silly to do, because none of them even know what shortwave is. But the jamming is so those living in the countryside where shortwave is still popular don't tune to Radio Free Asia, Voice Of America and BBC World Service to find out what is being and not being discussed at the meethings.
No, all might not be receivable here at my location, but most should be receivable via remote receivers located in Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan.For the next few month Firedrake will either add more transmitters and more power and target frequencies they don't try to jam. It's also the time of year depending on propagation and where your located that you can hear some odd local stations on shortwave use to jam. The oddest one I ever heard was a few years ago. Shanghai Traffic Radio on shortwave. Yes a local traffic station on shortwave. It as on for 3 months and then just went off air as soon as it appeared. Another one was (translation) Shanghai Childrens Radio. So expect more frequencies and times. Mind you not all will be audible where you are.
