Time Warp


I know some people who have came in to a forest at one place but came out at another place that was very far away from the place. They could not go so far by feet for the time. It really was and I wish see you while you be told to these people that it could not be.

Yes, somebody may smile and say "crazy author." I could be done so, BUT... In the middle of 80s at one evening I sent CQ on the 40 meters. Nobody answered me. I went to my kitchen for a cup of tea. When I came back in the shack I heard my CQ from the transceiver. Pirate, had thought I. Again I sent CQ and through several minutes I had heard my CQ coming back from my transceiver. Okey, I retuned my transceiver from the being frequency to several kHz apart, then wrote in the memory of my key my callcign (it was UA9LCT) with random letters, stand key at maximum speed and shot it into the Air. I fall from my chair when through several minutes I had heard the same from my transceiver. The phenomenon was lasted in the Air near 20 minutes... 73! Alexandr

... When I have read this article, I have remembered one episode from my life. I just had received my first callsign and then through a short time I had received QSLs with date that was one year before I got my ham license. There were QSLs from Canada and Yugoslavia. At all QSLs my report was 599. I would like reminded at first I had got 3- amateur category (at the USSR's qualification) that did not allow me to make QSOs with these countries. What it was, mistakes of the operators or something else?

I very often meet one- way propagation at 10 meters. I have received (or only somebody has received my station) with 57- 59, but somebody (or me) hear nothing. QSOs were duplicated via ICQ. I very often hear small LDE in 0,5- 2 second from Radio China at 19, 25 and 31 meters.

Sometimes when I have listening DX broadcasting station, I mention, that time signals, that was transmitted by the stations not correspond to my local time. Maybe the radio operators of those stations turn the time signal directed of their own hand- watch.


In the beginning of 80s, when I lived in the Northern Caucasia, I had received to my broadcast VHF receiver audio from TV that was going to 2 hour before real TV broadcasting. So, I could tell to my amused friends who was a winner in hockey or football. I can not understand how I could have received such signals...

In July of this year (2006), I was sitting before my transceiver and hearing the Air. Suddenly I heard: CQ 20, CQ 20, Radio Papa Nine... Lots radio stations answered to the call, a real pile- up. I could not understand nothing, because radio station with RP9... were working in Russia only at May. It is special callsign devoted to the Victory day (9 May, 1945). The station was working 10- 15 minutes, then go to very deep QSB. I have understand, that in July I have heard special station that worked at the May on Victory Days (but from which year?)... At the time a noise was very high at the 20 meters...

I heard from somebody about strange phenomena that is occurred near 11 MHz. It looks like the radio signals with spectrum 3- 4 kHz near the frequency (11 MHz) was recorded during 15- 20 second and then transmitted in reverse spectrum. Like tape recorder, record any signal (ever noise) and then transmitted it in reverse...

I have some records (made by me) of LW broadcasting with echo in some seconds. Real echo... I do not know how it can be...

I want to thank the author for the article... It is very interesting theme. I would like to say what was happened with me. On 1982 year I was served in the Soviet Army, in a division located in Kemerovo region. I had chance to hear amateurs bands at the Army. One time I had heard at 40 meters with strong QSB CQ de UA4NAS (it was my callsign at the times!!). I recognize my hand key, it was really me! I heard that lots stations were calling UA4NAS but the strange UA4NAS gave CQ and CQ like it did not hear anyone. I was very choked by this. It was in real...

I decided to add some stuff from me. Some time ago (may be 1- 2 years) I have got returned several my QSLs from Germany with the mark "No the Callsign." I checked the callsigns in databases from the internet. Really, there are no these callsigns. I was very surprised because I usually send my QSL (in Europe) in two cases: or the correspondent ask me about QSL either I reply to received QSL. So, I send the QSLs on request of these stations. As you know, a pirate, as usual, do not request for QSLs. I am on the Air very long time and I never do mistakes when I receive a callsign of my correspondent...
