Came to the party at 21:28.  Listening with a Massachusetts based SDR.  Sinpo = 44344

Found at 22:22 playing back-to-back Queen.  Now playing some Doors.  Just heard the Radio Ion ID.  I'm reading 6954.70 khz. 

Strong signal into a Massachusetts SDR, with a bit of static crash. 

Yo Zeke!  One word: Steely Dan
Thanks Zeke!  FM is Frequency Modulation because it's the theme to the 1978 movie "FM" about an FM radio station. I didn't think the movie was that good, but now I'm running to Netflix.

Okay, just what happened?  I was listening to Zeeky and at about 0000, he got covered up by some "sweeps" and then dead at about 0005. I'm thinking that he was jammed and then shut down his transmitter.

I'm hearing some spacey new age music, a lot like the stuff that WEZL was putting out last night. 

Got to the party a little late.  Hearing "Seasons Don't Fear the Reaper" starting at 2132.  S5 on a Kansas based SDR.  Not much fading.

They're still out out there. I found their weak signal about 2100 today.  S5 with fading into western New York.  I'm still wondering why they're using USB.

I caught it too. They weren't on very long.  The skit took place in Saskatchewan and they announced station CHIT.

Great signal on an SDR in Maryland.  9/9.  Radio play,  clearly War of the Worlds with the broadcast from Grover's Mill, NJ.

Found it at 2210 playing "Go Your Own Way" on an SDR in Maryland. Really weak. Maybe a 2/2. Faded into oblivion by 2220.

Pirate Radio History / What about that mail drop in Hilo, Hawaii?
« on: October 17, 2021, 2153 UTC »
I remember back in the 80's there was as PO Box in Hilo, Hawaii where you could write for QSL's.  It was almost universal with the shortwave pirates.  Are they still in business?  Does anyone know the history of that, or who was operating it?


I'm watching it right now.  I didn't know about this video, but what a blast from the past!

Came to the party at 2214.  S7 in western New York.
