since 1982 = 32 years?


I'm older than I thought I was I guess.


Did some reading on these things a while back. Pretty crazy stuff, would be wacky if it started back up all the sudden. Who knows what it could mean, but it's fun to speculate.

,aybe the solar flare knocked it out

Never heard of this before, so first of all thanks to the OP for posting this.

My own thoughts on this is theyre either updating the signal (going digital) or there simply isnt any use for it now. Its understandable it taking so long to switch off if it was a 'cold war' warning system, the russians are probably the most nervous of the super powers IMO.

This page has a bunch of Web Controlled Shortwave Receivers you can use to listen to shortwave over the web. I have not tried any of these yet. It uses Real Audio which I do not have.

Perhaps someone could try this and report if the signal is there?

www.qsl.net...

If none here work.. perhaps someone else can find a working shortwave over the Net receiver.

Frequency 4.625 MHz
Mode AM
Location Povarovo, Russia
Latitude 56.082778
Longitude 37.089444
Callsign UVB76
User/Usage S28, The Buzzer

I googled to see if I can find the frequency but apparently I just don't know what I am doing. I haven't had a shortwave radio since before I was married. Threw it out because a cat peed on it (long story). I'll dig around some more then.



4625khz (4.625mhz). I use to have a shortwave laying around I will see if I can find it.

The switching off thing is plausible I guess, but it still doesnt explain why it was transmitting for so long, and having routine maintenance done almots daily. Also, the three voice recordings seem to indicate somthing more than an old transmitter

Thank you for pointing that out.

Like your reasoning ! That got me to thinking, has anyone told
the Canadian Mounted Police ? "The Mounties ALWAYS get their man !"

This is what put me off the thought of it being a 'left over' or 'looped' transmission. The description of the voice transmissions are almost test like, there has to be more on this....(scurries to search for more).

But the thing is this is a military transmission from when Russia was still the Communist regime, so why would it be used still after 19 years since the so called "coup" in 1991?

This means this military transmission which was began when the Communist regime was still in power has been kept on transmitting even 19 years after the so called "Soviet coup."

Why would they keep a transmission from the Communist regime ongoing until recently?

If I'm not mistaken
this satellite was portrayed in the
hollywood movie directed by Clint
Eastwood entitled "Space Cowboys"
circa 2000.

From what I remember of the movie
the satellite had a dead man's switch
that if it didn't receive a signal back
then it fired it's nuclear payload at
pre-determined areas around the globe.
That was hollywood though, don't know
if the movie was based on the actual
Russian Satellite. But sometimes
hollywood can be quite detailed
in their portrayals (example "Titantic").

BTW, starred and flagged for bringing this to our attention.


Do you, or anyone else have any idea when was it that the transmission stopped? Was it today or some time back?

likely a spy station.

And likely replaced by the Internet.

I have heard that the image storage site "imgsrc.ru" is used to pass massages around the world now.

With the right software you can hide almost any information in a image.
and people from all over the world store photos on "imgsrc.ru" even porn.

if its hanging to the right it means yes and to the left means no.

Tried it, says it's "locked"
I'm not sure of any other resources for finding the broadcast.

I started looking to see when was it that the transmission stopped, but I don't see any other links that say this except for GLP...

Humm, where did the op get his info from?

Well one account I read on this mystery transmission said that quite often very faint and muffled incomprehensible voices could be heard, some times faint 'movement' noises and the pulsing noise seemed to have a sort of 'mechanical' quality to it - if that makes sense, sort of like a device of some sort produced the noise and if was left in front of a live microphone.

The same account also detailed various attempts to locate the source of the transmitter, it was somewhere within a military base I think, so it was off limits to any nosey parkers... I will try to google for the exact article.

Another explanation for the constant buzzer is the High-frequency Doppler method for ionosphere research [10] described in the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences, in which radio waves are reflected from ionosphere inhomogeneities. Changes of an ionosphere state can be caused by solar geophysical or seismic events. This method involves comparing a continuous radio transmission which is reflected by the ionosphere with a stable basic generator.

SOURCE

They are saying this transmitter could be used for researching atmospheric events, which can be affected by solar geophysical events.

Could this have something to do with the supposed massive solar wind headed our way, as discussed here:
