I like to say I'm doing my amateur radio hobby backwards. Got my first ticket in late 2009 and went staight to HF phone. Added an amp soon after. Then I learned code - on a paddle and keyer. Found the SKCC folks and switched to (mostly) straight key. After switching to straight key, I discovered QRP. Upon discovering QRP, I started building kits. Now I'm enjoying SWL, building crystal radios and eyeing a Trans-Oceanic DL600. What's next, spark gap?
So, as I mention, I'm enjoying SWL lately and night before last (06:30z 1/20/12), I'm twisting the dial and hear strong, crisp CW on 5.800 at +30db, and fairly slow. I copy it for a while and see the five character groupings. Letters, not numbers, but they're not using the whole alphabet. About 10 letters, I'd say. Cut numbers I suppose? A little later that night, 07:11z, I hear the numbers "lady" on 5.882. Odd, almost song-like recitation, of 5 digit groupings in Spanish.
I caught the end of both broadcasts. The CW ended in ARARARAR ARARARAR, and the voice ended in six repetitions of "22402".
I know it's old hat to SWLs with a little experience, but so far, it's been about the neatest thing I've run across.
