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.

Sounds from Space

Hopefully many people visiting this blog enjoy sounds from radio as much as I do, so let me share a wonderful archive of DD1US about the recordings of various spacecrafts, right from the beginning of an era, Sputnik.

The sounds are really spectacular, especially considering how much effort and innovative thinking these simple recordings actually carried at the time and still do!

I still find it almost unbelievable, that more than 50 years after, the space programs in both countries starting it all, are on a verge of shutdown ...

What in heavens sake (pun?) happened to our dreams?! Is it really THAT much more important to let small number of ethically challenged but otherwise ingenious minds experiment with free economy, only to come to conclusion that if you steal and cheat, its not gonna work? And this picture above is only part of, what's it gonna cost to bail it all out ...
