Anyone in and around Europe may be aware of a disagreement out in the east of the continent. It would be interesting if anyone picked up any comms on HF related to this. I know that most tactical stuff will be encrypted and go via satellite but HF is still used a lot given the size of some of the areas involved.
Below is a list of a few frequencies that could be used should the *******s come out (at 03:00GMT March 4th)
Let's concentrate on those that have European sites since they'd be better placed, propagationally speaking. WebSDR is very popular, but these other sites also qualify (their links are in the above article);
- SDR Radio Over Internet
- Perseus Servers (these are sites that are dedicated users of the popular Perseus SDR)
- Global Tuners
Many require a (free) pre registration before you can use them
If you know of other Euro-based HF online receivers, speak up...Mike
With this situation, it's very hard to suggest just one frequency would be involved. Clearly that's not true.
But first you must understand something about HF propagation. What range of freqs you want to check is largely dependent on when the US and Ukraine are in darkness or daylight. A good basic rule is below 10 Mhz or so at night, above this during the day (but that still leaves a lot of territory). This site - which uses Flash, by the way - is a good place to start learning...
Many will set up lists of freqs that can be checked (I hesitate to use the word 'scan', although that's essentially what you're doing) if you are using a PC with your radio. It's catch as catch can at this point
