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

VLF Experience

Yesterday morning the mistaken frequency field in PRIYOM scheduler made the prijemnik receiver to tune on to 0kHz for a while.

As there was a thunderstorm in progress (quite surprising for mid-September) the result was a beautiful display of EMI scattering, when surplus electrical fields discharged. The sound was more or less like a dolphin song, too bad I did not have a recorder on to provide an audio sample ..

The horizontal line at the bottom of the screen is a lightning strike happening, but please also pay attention to the very clear and neat VLF transmission happening at 18kHz region. This is likely a submarine communication and sounded like any other RTTY modulation.

Surprisingly, my magnetic loop antenna design seems to work very well down to the VLF region, making it a really nice and compact exploration tool as indoor urban antenna. The long aerial outside was absolutely mute below 50kHz and did not display any sign of VLF transmission other than static.

  2. try tuning into vlf next time auroras happen, they produce nice sound too.

  3. Please post a photo and/or a diagram of you antennae array. And perhaps you already have, so the link is.... I found this site based on the Wired article.
