Ha!

Heard carrier come on, punk song. Male announcer talking a bit, think he mentioned this is a test. Said program will be ending with a couple of songs. Bassy/muffled mic audio. I think he said next song is from Africa & it does sound like it.

Radio Esoterica IDs & old Stoneham address

Charlie Loudenboomer of NAPRS on afterward mentioning that RE was a pirate from the mid-90s & that he'll QSL logs on HFU. Nice to hear R. Esoterica again--I don't think I've heard it in about 26 years

General Radio Discussion / Logbooks
« on: September 06, 2023, 1146 UTC »
One topic that I haven't heard anyone talk about in a long time is logbooks. Are most people using logging software? Just using the posts on HFU to serve as their logs, using ARRL ham books to list log, or maybe just enjoying the listening experience and not logging anything? It seems like some of the DXers from decades ago used to be serious about their logbooks, but I think it's been two decades or so since I've heard anyone discuss the topic.

Buzzwords from newscasts spliced together. Pretty cool. VG signal in a lot of noise

General Radio Discussion / HB Radio #5 on 5130 4/20 EDT?
« on: April 20, 2023, 2203 UTC »
I know that the 5130 transmitter had some problems and I'm not sure if HB Radio #5 will be on the air tonight or not. It's scheduled for 11 PM EDT/10 PM Central, which is 0300 UTC on 4/21. I'm playing it by ear right now & if I hear anything, I'll post on this thread. Otherwise, there's always a chance that the show could pop up at a later date on 5130 or somewhere else on the radio bands.

This program is about half DX show, with about a dozen audio clips from stations reported around Easter. There's a brief interview with Ion Radio, and some chatting with Chris Smolinski about the daily wideband waterfall images he's been creating & posting on here. If you're interested in following along with what he's talking about, check out the images between 4/5 and 4/10.

Whenever it is that you hear it, hope you like the show.

Consistently weak signal, but could hear talk from announcer that sounded like that of YHWH. No ID, makes sense based on time & freq. I think it went off around 0350

General Radio Discussion / Pirate listeners younger than 30
« on: March 19, 2023, 2051 UTC »
I know this topic was brought up a few years ago, but I wondered if we have any shortwave pirate listeners who are younger than 30 right now who are active on the HFU?

General Radio Discussion / HB Radio #4 on 5130 3/16 EDT
« on: March 13, 2023, 2107 UTC »
Hi,
Just wanted to let you know that HB Radio #4 is on the air Thursday night on the 5130 kHz transmitter of WBCQ at March 16 at 11 PM EDT/10 Central (UTC 0400 3/17). This one's a change of pace, in some ways from the last: about 9 minutes of brief shortwave news & audio clips into a long interview with Tha Dood, who has run Part-15 and carrier-current stations for 40 years and is active on HFU.

If you don't typically stay up 'til 0500 or are out of the signal range of WBCQ, it's possible that it could be relayed by other outlets at a later date. Also, I can send out some MP3 copies. I'll eventually post the shows on one of the platforms, but I'm trying to catch up with things here . . . and I tend to procrastinate with jumping into new technologies.

BTW, I've finished most of the part 2 episode with Chris Smolinski & plan to finish it soon. Then I'll make it available . . . maybe in about two weeks, but we'll see.

Thanks for your interest, patience, and/or support and hope you like the show!
Andrew

Weak with music, synch detector had problems locking. Went outside to check that the horizontal loop was OK after a day of wind & falling limbs. The antenna's OK, but the station was gone

Weak with some fade ups. Sounds like Jethro Tull

General Radio Discussion / HB Radio #3 on 5130 1/19 EST
« on: January 18, 2023, 2225 UTC »
Hi,
Just wanted to let you know that HB Radio #3 is on the air tomorrow night on the 5130 kHz transmitter of WBCQ at January 19 at 11 PM EST/10 Central (UTC 0400 1/20). The interview is with someone you might know, Chris Smolinski. I'd never talked to Chris before, so I had a bunch of questions written down so that I could better articulate everything on air. It was like calling up a long lost friend & we talked for 3.5 hours. I essentially tossed out the questions & just winged it. I then tried to assemble a couple of big chunks that I thought shortwave & pirate DXers would be especially interested in hearing from the interview into something that would fit into the time slot. It was kind of like piecing the continents together to form Pangea, except that I was forced to discard more than half of the continents.

If you don't typically stay up 'til 0500 or are out of the signal range of WBCQ, it's possible that it could be relayed by other outlets at a later date. Also, I can send out some MP3 copies. I still am planning to post on YouTube and/or Rumble, but I thought I'd post a grouping of shows

Thanks for your interest, patience, and/or support and hope you like the show!
