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

25 Years from Chernobyl

Early morning 25 years ago, on April 26, 1986 the accident at Chernobyl power plant rendered the large area in Ukraine (part of the USSR back then) a nuclear wasteland.

From radio communications perspective, this location has also another outstanding object of interest - the notorious "Russian Woodpecker", located within 30km evacuation zone of the plant.
