UVB-76 Live stream

Ukraine - 34 Kanal



During almost 12 years the repeater has been up, I have been keeping it apolitical. But Putin has gone batshit and UVB-76 radio station is a weapon. So, while I keep translating it, you are welcome to also watch the Ukrainian news channel '34 Kanal' to see, what kind of events this signal is actually participating at today.
Slava Ukraini!

DISCLAIMER: I have no association with UVB-76 station, neither do I have any clue what is the content I am relaying. I can only assure, that the signal is received on 4.625MHz about 300km NW from supposed origin and retransmitted unaltered. In no way can I guarantee this service, nor be considered responsible of any content re-transmitted. The only purpose for this relay to exist is because lot of people who do not have equipment or are located too far from station seem to be interested about listening to it. Note, that because of shortwave radio signal propagation specifics the station is not always audible

It .. Talks!

Just received a link to an excellent resource on UVB-76 voice messages history at http://sites.google.com/site/stationuvb76/oct2002 (Thank you, Robert!). I have no idea how this has been collected, but at first glance the content seems plausable. 
The site also has some in-deep technical details about the station, http://sites.google.com/site/stationuvb76/january-2009 what seems to be a translation and modification from old geocities archive page in russian of unknown origin. This information at the last link looks most credible to me so far (I do speak russian, therefore I can assure that this is mostly the same data as seen on the January-2009 link above), but I havent been able to track it down to any other source in Russia. 
However, there is a very nice gallery of UVB-76 station antenna set at http://kspzel.livejournal.com/11908.html and http://alex-odn.livejournal.com/12148.html These pictures, however, do have slight credibility problem, as the setup looks decommissioned at the time when station is definitely transmitting, so either the location of the picture is off or the station has moved .. or this really looks like that ... no idea. Also, the antenna configuration is different (or dipoles have been removed from towers):
