rfspace CloudIQ SDR with about 100 feet of 14 gauge wire strung thru the backyard
1370 unID 9/19 1715 to 1721 CDT. In poorly upon tune-in but only station w/ any copyable audio. Ads for Werner Ladders, Napa knowhow, and State Farm insurance. An address on West Main Street was given. Signal suddenly dropped in power @ 1721 and became inaudible. The closest fit I could find for a power/ant. change @ this time was WDEA-ME. Their LSS Tuesday was about 1735. Frequency was measured @ 1369.9929 kHz and is not a frequency of any of the usually hrd stations here. TPK-WI
Comments: Spend over 1.5 hours yesterday evening looking for signs of TAs and found no trace of them anywhere on the band. This morning pre-dawn I had better luck and found a scattering of weak (no audio) TP signals here and there across the band. Finding weak TA and TP signals at this location is not that uncommon, but signals having some audio are apparently rare. Since purchasing the sdr in 2/16 about 125 TA and 75 TP distinct frequencies have been logged. Not a one had any detectable audio. Tom

Comments: I was listening to WFED-1500 when I thought there was something wrong w/ my radio. The vertical lines that represent stations on the waterfall display had widen so much that almost all the lines were overlapping each other.The display had no vertical lines, mostly just one big glob of color. This was happening on all the frequencies I checked. A look at the NOAA website showed that the planetary K-index had spiked from 2 to 8. A major geomagnetic disturbance was taking place! Apparently some uncommon frequency shifting ( the doppler effect ) was taking place due to the ionosphere being pushed around.
