Sounds Good: UVB-76, The Ultimate JabberSping

Sounds Good: UVB-76, The Ultimate JabberSping

Imagine a decade of beeps every two seconds or so, all day, all night until 1992.

Then the buzzes started ─ nearly twenty years of buzzes to date ─ all buzzes, all the time. Mostly.

It’s shortwave radio from Russia; thanks to the web it has a much larger audience.

I like it. Curiosity and only curiosity has brought me here.

I like thinking about it more than actually hearing it, but nevertheless, I like it and it’s in the JabberSping.

Here and there and everywhere.

JABBERSPING.COM DISCLAIMER:  In full agreement with the disclaimer below and on http://uvb-76.net/ and it reads like this: 

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.
