Report #067 11/02/08

On 27 October at 1822 UCT I intercepted a station in CW sending 5L groups (on 14440 kHz). Frequent male Spanish voice came in on top of the CW signal so I had a lot of misses in my copy. These groups were not cut numbers. Several messages were sent and I did copy one of the message headings which was as follows: NR 12 O 27:19:34:45 1986 BT. The signal was fading and finally was uncopiable at 1849 UCT. Since hearing these transmissions I have checked the frequency often but have not again heard this activity. I will continue to check the frequency.

On 30 October between 22:36 and 22:52 UCT the following beacon signals were heard:

523 JJH Johnstown, NY
415 ASJ Ahoskie, NC
378 RJ Roberval, Quebec
375 PJS Newport News, VA
373 AEA Meckllenberg, VA
368 ZYZ Queensway (Toronto) Ontario
366 YMW Maniwaki, Quebec
363 RNB Millville, NJ
355 CGE Cambridge, MD
317 Cumberland, MD
254 EUD York, PA
245 LUA Luray, VA
216 CLB Wilmington, NC
