DISCLAIMER

IT IS TIME TO TAKE SIDES
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

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!
