E03a

Cherry Ripe is still alive and kicking. After it's move from Guam to the navy transmitter site Humpty Doo near Darwin, Australia , the signal is pretty poor in Europe. It is probably transmitting towards Eastern Asia.

A couple of logs submitted by Mike and Eddy:

E11 is pretty active as you can see in the logs section. GD provided this

and other logs.

G06

Another one from UDXF-y255. He heard G06 on 14 and 16-9.

4990 kHz 1800 UTC 14-9 734 00000
5102 kHz 1100 UTC 16-9 Two G06 stations transmit simultaneously on this frequency. Sounds like one station transmits "0123" and the other "256". Then "0123" stopped and "256" continued for about 20-30 sec. No messages or five zeroes at the end or between the call signs.
5435 kHz 1300 UTC 16-9 734 00000

S06

Richard reports an unusual S06 broadcast.

9220 kHz 1900 UTC 23-9-2009 Most unusual message tonight from S06 slow (YL) with a stutter group (444).

V21

Westli reported an unid station on 6416 kHz; possibly the Cuban Babbler. If so than it was on an odd frequency as it's usually on 6529 kHz.

V24

Both Korean stations V24 and M94 are quite active. T! compiled the transmission times and created a website with this information.

He writes:

"My web skills are a tad on the wanting side, so the pages basically only contain the information needed without anything fancy. The V24 page does link to audio files of each section of the V24 transmission as well as a couple full-length transmissions. The M94 page has no audio at this time, but should eventually.

Each page has a schedule of only that emitters time. On the V24 page you see only V24, on the M94 page you see only M94. But, the combined schedule shows both on the same page. The combined schedule is interesting because you can see there are no scheduling conflicts, V24 never transmits at the same time as M94. This schedule is a snap shot for the two-month period ending 1 June, 2009. If you go back far enough in the database you will see that times and slots have changed, so that a one year long schedule might show "conflicts" in times. The observed reality is that this pair of emitters operates one at a time with no overlaps or simultaneous transmissions."

Thanks T!
