DISCLAIMER

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 AM-modulated 900km 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. Should the UVB-76 station- or transmission content owners feel violated in any way, please contact me at uvb76.repeater@gmail.com and we will work it out.

Note, that because of shortwave radio signal propagation specifics the station can be more or less reliably received from around 4pm to 6am GMT on summertime. It is almost 24h audible during the winter, with short "skip-zone" blank-out around 6pm GMT.

The USB feed is considered as main source of audio today, as the voice messages are much better audible there than on the AM stream. However, the buzzer sound from the AM stream is somewhat more pleasant to listen at, so both feeds are kept simultaneously.

Relay of the relay! desync.com has provided 2x1000 slots!

The stream has been literally 100% of the time 100% utilized for past 24 hours and many have obviously been on "retry hell" with this, especially Windows Media Player users as this player does not give "stream full" message, but fails with rather strange error. Thank you all for your patience, as I havent received a single hate-mail about this! Instead, lot of supporting e-mails have arrived and some with different offers for help - Thank you David, Ben and Justin!
The most straighforward was Ben-s solution, who did set up a relay with 1000 sockets for both feeds at desync.com! It streams off the original streams, so its the same data as from two main feeds.

  1. Great work, dudes. I think the transmission has stopped, right? Just get hum and noise.

  2. PS: I am sure that the owners of UVB76 have noticed an extrem increase of interest concerning the transmission. I would not be astonished if they'll shift - or already have shifted - the transmission frequency. What do you think. Sorry for bad english.

  3. It is usual for that time of day to have only static - it will likely resume in next few hours. The nature of shortwave number stations is, that they relay only messages what can be safely transmitted open air, so it probably does not really bother the station owners if there are few hundred less or more in the audience ..

    You download the file via the links above, and you open it with almost any music streaming program (ie, Itunes, Windows, ect).
    USB and AM vary, switching off sometimes helps.

  6. When I go to the link above I just get a blank page with the desync logo at the top. If I try to open the link above with vlc nothing plays. Am I missing something?

    What internet broswer are you using? and are you actually downloading it from: USB desync.com FEED: UVB-76 (USB on 4.625MHz, 4.5kHz bandwidth) ? Or the AM feed? if not, you can always find the online streaming sources, most have live chat rooms linked with it.
