I listened to Chris's recording of the broadcast.  It was a repeat of last year's "Paranoia News North" program, which I heard and logged a few times in the late winter/early spring of 2011.  Unfortunately I was unable to record any of those broadcasts last year - I heard them only while outdoors with a portable and didn't have any recording device available, so I logged everything in handwritten notes, later transcribed to my online logs (one of which was logged to the FRN - that log vanished or was deleted by parties unknown in early 2011; an identical log was submitted to the FRW but omitted from their published logs).

This most recent recording, which was excellent and offered 100% clear copy, confirms my impressions of last year: At no time did this "Paranoia News North" or Northern Relay Station broadcast expose any identities or locations of any free/pirate radio operators.  It was purely satire, nothing more.  It made satirical references to the "Commander Bunny" character of WBNY, and to a "Bob Smith" - presumably the pseudonymous character alleged to have reported NRS/Yellowknife Radio to Canadian authorities.  There was a fanciful tale by "Hans the Inquisitive" involving conspiracies, the CIA, etc., against background music and sound effects, but all were clearly intended as satire and fair use commentary.  Hopefully this will dispel any rumors about the contents or intents of this program.

Thanks going out to our Southern Extension , not to be confused with  the Whistling Dixie Southern Relay Service and their 8 watt powerhouse.
