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.

Jazzsequence - The Signal, a Pledge

UVB-76 has been a great deal of inspiration for musicians around the world, resulting many beautiful tracks. If you think there is room for more, please check the link what was just sent to me today by a good old friend Margus, who' s one of the greatest analog synth fans I know and runs a after-life site for old Roland synths (http://www.wolzow.com/)

Its a pledge by Chris Reynolds (a.k.a. Jazzsequence) for rising $900 for releasing an album inspired from listening to the shortwave and UVB-76 in particular. As far as I understood, the money is going to be spent on couple of cool gizmos helping to make a music in a specific way, but its a reasonable cause nevertheless as far as I can tell :)


  1. I did not write a piece of music inspired by the UVB-76, however it helped me to restyle my ugly SH-201 synthesizer. Arguably one of the worst looking synths ever made. :lol:


    Last week, after seeing some supposedly UVB-76 bunker photos I got inspired to restyle it.
    Unfortunately I'm not crafted enough to rebuild it from scratch, I cannot move anything, I can only replace knobs, paint stuff or cover things up.
    So I tried to teach myself some Illustrator and Photoshop skills and this is what I've got so far. I (re)named it the Bahn UVB-76...
    If you have any suggestions please let me know!


  2. Aah, and suggestion .. If you happen to own synth like that, making some UVB-76 or other radio/technology inspired music would be due :) Its a cool synth (allthough I shall agree with the ugly part ...) for making such kind of beat!
