Re: Possible KMS-4 Radio Reception on UHF

Hi All

Ted asked why he couldn't hear anything on the .wav file.

The .wav posted was recorded with Spectravue and is 190KHz in 
bandwidth.  If you play it using Spectravue you will have an easier time 
hearing something meaningful.  Other common players will produce very 
low output etc as you are not focused on the slice that matters.

For the analysis you have a 190KHz BW of raw audio data to perform 
Doppler analysis with, nudge nudge wink wink...!  When you run the 
playback with Spectravue the signal in question becomes obvious.

Spectravue can be found here:

I have no relationship with rfspace other then I own one of their SDR-IQs.

Here's a screen shot of the first few seconds with obvious Doppler
