Just scan around on the site, you'll find something of interest in no time.
Also, here's an informative article on EAM's:

I was testing it by using temporary antenna from cookie plate and wire as recommended on reddit. I'm thinking of building pic related, because that looks like it will be easiest to build.
Right, obviously you guys are new to the site, which is great, loads of new people to listen to extra stations. But there are things you need to know:
Firstly, if you hear something odd, click Max In. This can show all labels of stations (For example the USAF EAMs) Secondly, if there is no label, click the button that says http://qrg DOT globaltuners DOT com. This can tell you what these stations are.
Thirdly, If there is a green bar under the signal shown in the waterfall, these signals are HAMS. meaning its probably some russian in his shed. If the bar is purple, this is public broadcasting such as BBC Radio 1.
I tested indoors with a cookie plate contraption and outdoors with a shitty wire. I have a big park right outside my windows. I tried to listen to most confirmed frequencies from a local frequency database, but didn't have any luck.
go to the website, enter frequency, click USB, and listen. the buzzer is constant, most of the other frequencies are not, so make sure its working with the buzzer then you can tune to another.
guys... zoom in on the waterfall window to the frequency you're listening to, the regular stations all have markers in orange saying what they are.
if you still can't figure it out, google it.
because the messages don't mean shit unless you have the means of decoding them. The codes are basically impossible to crack and you can broadcast on shortwave over a great distance.
the air force is probably talking about how they need to bring another fucking shipment of doritos to afganistan or some shit, its not like there about to declare thermonuclear war
so I am seemingly able to connect to servers to listen to SDR?
I'm hearing kebab talk...
I keep hearing russian picking up phone and put it down, and occasionally talk.

Monolyth messages description
Russian Central commandment stations are using common message format for scrambled commands. Below is a brief description of this format.
The command message format used by russian central military commandment network is called Monolyth (rus. cигнaл Moнoлит).
The name came from urgency level name. Urgency levels used in russian military radiotelephony are
Monolyth(Moнoлит) - the most urgent message level, interrupts all other possible transmissions
Air (Boздyх) - came after Monolyth and interrupts all other messages except Momolyth level messages
Rocket (Paкeтa) - cames after Monolyth and Air and interrupts all other except those two mentioned
Airplane (caмoлeт) - cames after Monolyth, Air and Rocket, interrupts regular messages
Regular (oбыкнoвeннaя) - cames after all previous categories
There is no description in public about the meaning of each part, but our monitoring give some thoughts about first two digit groups, which seems to be in connection with recipient. It is possible for example that they are coming from: xx - district number, xxx - some numbers from unit number (which is 5-digit number in Russia).
This theory can be seen for example in this PIP message addressed for 4 recipients:
ДЛЯ 5Ф7Щ 49ФГ TУЗP 5Й7Щ 66 431 56 298 43 202 66 185 OTЦEПЩИК 98 69 21 67
As you can see, there are 4 recipient callsigns, followed by 4 2+3 digit groups and then comes the message itself.
The message content has been discussed a bit in russian forums and it is known that message CodeWord usually address some envelope with instructions, where last 4 2-digit groups is the message itself and can be decoded using given envelope.
MДЖБ 34 568 ГAШEHИE 48 95 48 13 ЗИЗИФУC 98 36 19 35
There are also so called Zone Covering messages, their purpose is to fill up the air with some content without any real meaning. Their format follows monolyth format, but the message itself has no real meaning. In russian terminology they are called Зoнaльнo-Macкиpoвoчныe cooбщeния or Зoны (zones).
what about the different servers I connect to? if they are on an opposite side of the planet would I possibly have trouble listening to the same freq's that someone else is if their receiver is located in a different place?
Russian command stations using the Monolyth system: Patron-79 (4790 kHz)
B Marker S5292 (5292 kHz)
Arbat-50 (5426 kHz)
Katok-65 (6930 kHz)
Plovets-41 (4325 kHz)
I just realized I'm so fat that its hard to breath when I lean foreward. Doesn't help that my ribs and back hurt from throwing up while being sick. It just sucks that my chair can't recline so I have to struggle to breath and nearly pass out every time I laugh.
Anyone else have this issue? I'm only 300-320lbs.
I though only Russians and other sub-humans jammed signals like that. We don't even have such assets in that area.
Its probably just a digital signal used to transmit data. Russians are that technologically backwards anyway.
