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.

Den' Radio

Happy Radio Day to everybody!

Each nation has its own history of radio and different countries celebrate the birth of radio at different time. May 7'th is the Den' Radio for Russia and some other post-soviet countries, as this day on year 1895 Alexander Popov demonstrated his coherer based radio receiver to the Russian Physical and Chemical Society.

The whole "who did really invent the radio, Popov or Marconi" subject has been almost a century-long topic for propaganda war between eastern and western block. What is often missed is, that would it be Popov, Marconi or someone else, the history of inventing radio is much more vivid and sophisticated than narrowing it down to single inventor would allow.  Hughes, Herz, Tesla and many more have all contributed to the birth of radio besides Marconi and Popov, so everyone can just pick the favorite!

  1. Why haven't you done a Podcast yet this Entire year? I really did enjoy them. Also I got my first SDR kit. Ensemble RX II, Now I am scare crap-less about the tiny IC's and Caps. Everything else is cakewalk.

  2. I don't know where else to put this. Most won't belive me but, at 3:18AM Eastern Standard Time (Virginia, USA) I switched on the live stream. Imediatley I was hearing a voice say names such as, "Mikahil and Nokoli" then a series of what I think were numbers. Then a long pause and a shuffleing noise and then the usual buzzing continued. I had no way to record this because I was listening on my iPhone and had nothing else around to record it. I am now very sketched out now that this year long obsession I stumbled upon has come up to something like this. I didn't know where else to post anything like this. So here ya go.

  3. In my fit of paranoia I forgot to put the date. July 12th 2012. Someone who has it recorded then please go back and look at it from 3:17-3:18ish until like 3:25 that's over when it stopped I'm just being loose here. It didnt come through clear here and I could only distinguish those two names and what I think is a number that I can only spell out how it sounded and it was like (dry-kampf) pronounced as dry in english and kampf like the German word. That's how it sounded to me. Someone please go look at the time and date I put. I want to know other people heard that. I'm freaking out and I don't know why.

  5. Was just listening, and at 11:21pm Eastern Time, I could distinctly hear voices and possibly some shuffling behind the normal buzzing. It sounded like it might have been a TV. This continued for almost a minute before quieting down and then dissapearing. I will admit that I only just started listening to this channel, but I dont believe it was interference.
