Good Lord, that's a blast from the past! I didn't know Dr. Love was still broadcasting? It's been a good 25 years since I last heard him.

Shortwave Pirate / Re: UNID 9913.04 USB 0010 UTC 22 MAY 2022

01:42 UTC - SSTV; weak readable with an S6 to S7 and punching through well;
01:51 UTC - CW ID (missed it);
01:52 UTC - Signal has improved but audio appears to be over-modulated and at times distorted;
02:02 UTC - SSTV: "Believe in yourself, even when no one else will";
02:07 UTC - SSTV (alien head);
02:12 UTC - SSTV: "The future is $2"
02:18 UTC - Nothing else heard.

Thank you for the broadcast.

Fat's Waller. I thought I was the only pirate to play him. 5'10", 290 pounds with size 22 feet. A hurricane couldn't knock that man off his feet.

If I'd been casually tuning around and heard the BBC these day's with a good signal,I would've had to change my underwear.

Vanuatu is a long way from anywhere. Let's hope it's just a parts issue and they're waiting on a replacement.

The local natives told settlers not to build at what's now Xenia, the area was cursed. Did they listen, no. Now dodging tornado's is a local pastime.

Do Canadian stations still have to play 75% Canadian content on the air? They ought to play the Guess Who's cover of "Shakin' All Over". It's not the Johnny Kidd original, but Johnny Kidd and the Pirates were a tough act to follow.

Top for Fansome fans. You know who you are. I'm talkin' to you Belinda.

The biggest thief in my town was the mayor's son along with a crew of his buddies ,who cruised around in car equipped with the same transceiver the police and fire dept. used. That little turd went on an eight year theft spree and never spent a day in court or jail.

Radio Rebelde at 5025 and its sometimes up to like S9+80 (or higher!) signal here at night. I have threatened to build a notch filter for it, though in turn, that also would mean actually doing something about Radio Marti on 6030 as well. Instead, I just forget about running remote feedpoint preamps on my 31' vertical and 148' LoG antennas.

I can't imagine what 49 meters was like in Florida and along the Gulf Coast from Mexico east in Radio Havana's heyday? They were bad enough here in the southern Appalachians blasting "Mambo #5" on what seemed like every other frequency 

I'd go to the beach hoping for some S. American MW dx with just maybe the possibility of some trans-Atlantic African MW dx,but it was
just more Cuban's. A bright spot was after 11 p.m. or so the Cubans would go long and you could hear Radio Jamaica on 4 or 5
MW frequencies along with some Colombians and Venezuelans.

Longwave Loggings / Re: Receiving LWBC in North America
« on: May 20, 2022, 1550 UTC »
Good advice, Helen. I got most of my SW tropical band dx catches with a design for a MW loop from Radio Nederlands that I accidentally cut the frame too small. It worked well from the 120 meter ham band through the N.A. pirate band, indoors, sitting on a table. Once you got the right heading, it was a matter of tweaking the knob on the capacitor.

Believe it or not, some pirates lied about where they were tx'ing from. Shocking!

I appreciate that, Corq, but weren't goats Al's spirit animal?

I was merely a replacement for his childhood hero, Arnold Ziffle.

I remember The Guide to World Band Radio saying in the 90's that the only way to get Radio Mali to qsl was to send porn. It was a great station if you liked extended Afro-Pop jams,they hardly ever id'ed.
