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.

No UVB-76 transmission can be received

UPDATE: So, its true - UVB-76 has stopped the transmission on September 1, 2010 4.05amUTC just like that - last buzz and all static after that. Pease find the archive recording here.
If this is the end of it or will the UVB-76 return to its regular transmissions is difficult to speculate. It is clear however, that it is not an atmospheric or propagation issue at the moment.

[OLD POSTING: The buzzing has been absent for quite some time now. Report sais, that on August 31, 23.27UTC the carrier switched off and has not re-appeared since.
Currently there is no sign of any carrier frequency on WinradHD screen. On this time of day the atmospheric conditions should allow reception even with the very bad propagation conditions, so it is highly unusual to not have any signal.

I will seek it out from archive and post the recording of the signal stopping, lets hope that it will re-appear!]

  1. i have been listening to the second feed (usb one) for about a half hour now. i was outside splitting wood and my wife ran outside saying there transmitting morse code. i listened for about 5 minutes and heard it myself, along with other strange sounds

  2. Yes Randall, this has been going on for some time now.

    I did check in at around 0900 UTC today (September 1st), and I think I heard a very very faint sound of the Buzzer. Not sure though and I haven't heard any other person report that the Buzzer returned after 2337 UTC yesterday.

  3. its got me paranoid, weve heard movement in the background on our comp. we have the volume to 100 percent over the "big speakerS"

  4. Also want to confirm this morse code that Randall talks about.

  5. i want to know what the code is saying, anyone got that yet?

  6. Well I am not very good at morse code and was using a table to translate it. But I'm sure one part just kept repeating · · — — · ·
    Which is apparently a question mark.
    So it just kept doing - ?????

    I'm probably completely wrong. Seems strange though.

  7. i just heard what sounded to be a satellite transmitting, like really fast digital beeps anyone else hear this?

  8. Thats morse code. I'm looking at my spectrogram and its appearing at a very high frequency. (i.e. its not transmitting on 4.625) so i doubt it is coming from UVB-76

  9. that makes me feel a lil better lol

  10. I think the CW is coming from coastal marine stations that handle marine traffic. I heard 2 separate ones, but they are off frequency, so they are hard to hear clearly.

  11. Still. If anyone is interested, here is the download link to some morse code (I think its just repeated every five minutes or so.)

  12. Nevermind, there was (just barely) a different morse code relayed. didnt record it. I can no longer assume it repeats itsself. However i can still assume it is not from UVB-76 or even on channel.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Currently there is a lot of morse code coming out of: uk3-pn.mixstream.net:8026

  14. If someone knows how to record the Main Feed, there are voices (very very faint) in the background, the Morse Code, and now some type of strange buzz that seems patterned.

  15. I am recording it, but I don't really know if it is coming from russia. It's too clear.

    ReplyDelete
  16. There are very clear voices right now.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm reading russian comm. Does anyone understand it?

    ReplyDelete
  18. It's just a normal broadcast station it sounds.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Is there a mirror for the last recording? I can't seem to get it to download.

  21. I am on a repeater that is rather close to uvb-76 and I am picking up really odd signals. Files will be uploaded briefly.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Right now it seems to be a jumbled mess of morse code..

    ReplyDelete
  23. I believe uvb-76 is still broadcasting, unusual broadcasts though but I can hear buzzing.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Would stick around and do more but I have football in a bit. So I will continue listening later today.

  25. Im recording, two Morse Codes... One is louder than the other... I´ll upload it soon...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Alright I just heard a song on 4625 ...... twice ..... (21:43-21:47 GMT).

    ReplyDelete
  27. yup. it was orchestral. I got it recorded

    ReplyDelete
  28. weird music, morses, and some new even scarier buzzing, not buzzing all the time but right before the music starts...
    00:16 gmt+1

    ReplyDelete
  29. The music probably has no relation with UVB-76. However, I can also confirm that the buzzer can be heard again, alternating between silence and buzzing.

    ReplyDelete
  30. It's usually like this, buzzing, morse, silence, buzzing, music... then repeats

    ReplyDelete
  31. The music is from Russian "Swan Lake" ballet
