• 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:

Nice S8 signal on 5505 at 0145 UTC, 2145 local time. Using a Palstar R30 with 90' end fed antenna on the back patio.
Beautiful moonlit night here about 70 degrees.

Yes, she does gabble and the RAF base station names she calls out very quickly - and there's so many! Received quite well here on the Gray Line when the atmospherics are low.

Several years ago, I seem to recall that Shannon was QSLing - and on their card was a recipe for authentic Irish coffee. Just think - a QSL you can get drunk on. Sweet!

Received 5450 last night around 0100 UTC. Heard on my Drake SPR-4 with about a S-4 signal.

She does whip through her list very quickly.

Irish coffee....Hmm.

SPR-4, great receiver! A few years ago with higher sunspots I was pulling in Auckland Volmet on my Sony ICF-6800W using the whip antenna quite well here in Florida, as well as Azores and Senegal aero radio.
When the solar cycle picks up in a couple of years give it a try (kind of pointless at the present time).

Thank you, always drooled over the SPR-4 when I was a teenager, but couldn't afford one. Bought one with all of the crystal slots filled up about 5 years ago.

Yes, will have to try some pacific aero stations when the sunspot cycle increases!

The SP station on Hawaii calling herself San Francisco comes in very well here on 8867kHz in the late afternoon until they change to a lower frequency, probably 5643kHz.
