I really really do.
So much has happened here in the last 2 weeks or so that I
forget half of it.
I'm about half done with podcast 14, should be out end of this
week I hope. Many many new members have joined up with us, great to
have you here guys. For those who follow the buzzer you might be
aware of Peter from the russian radio scanner forum, who
has been following the buzzer even longer than we have. Peter
dropped into the IRC the other day and has joined the group. It's
great to have Peter along for the ride. The diversity of the
Priyom.org community is perhaps why I enjoy all this so much.
Peter also indicated that there was another buzzer style station
that we should be paying attention to Plovets-41. This station broadcasts "Monolyth" or
"Buzzer" style messages, similar to those we hear across most
Russian military stations. The station has been around for many
years as a part of this network and broadcasts an R morse beacon on
4325 with messages being broadcast in USB. Gwraspe mentioned
hearing messages broadcast on this station previously and we
already know about S6930 and the many random broadcasts we hear
from the Russian military, so it sounds like its time to give the
whole thing another look. We need to nail down the message format
before we can add it to the database though, so manual entries on
the website until then.
The pip had a great one for the olympics:
S30: 8С1Щ НА СЕГОДНЯ ОГРАНИЧИТЬ ПРИМЕНЕНИЕ ВОЙСК, МАССОВЫЙ ВЫХОД
ТЕХНИКИ В СВЯЗИ С НАЧАЛОМ ОТКРЫТИЯ ОЛИМПИЙСКИХ ИГР
8S1Shch RESTRICT THE USE OF FORCES FOR TODAY, MASSIVE MOVE OF
TECHNICS DUE TO START OF OPENING OF THE OLYMPICS
We shall discuss this one a bit more in the next podcast (ep 15)
but I thought you all would enjoy hearing that one.
More minor, we now have 2 IRC bots in the channel. When I get
some time (ah ha ha like that is gonna happen!) I shall have a look
at coding up a calander shout function where the bot reads the
calander and shouts out a station five minutes before its broadcast
with a link to the utwente sdr.
Shouldn't be an issue to code it... hopefully, who knows what the
google calander API is like? Heh, any volunteers? ;-)
