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.

Happy Birthday, Repeater!

It just happens so that the UVB-76 Temporary Internet Repeater is today celebrating its 7'th birthday!

The first setup was a Icom IC-R20 handheld scanner streaming with my desktop computer to Bell Online Shoutcast streaming service on the evening of 6'th of June. Little was I to expect that this will be the dawn of a whole new genre of radio hobby with literally thousands of people (re)discovering a mysteries of shortwave thanx to a buzzing sound from Russia!

Thank you for staying interested in unknown! Thank you for your ongoing support and good words! It seems that the longest lasting things in a world are those labeled "temporary"! :)
