0142 UTC-Music

This is a list I have compiled based on loggings here on the HFU. It shows all the North American shortwave pirates heard in the month of May 2023. Note that many stations use multiple names so determining the number of actual transmitters in use is impossible. Some stations are also active so infrequently that they may not have been logged this month but may broadcast in the future. Stations are listed alphabetically and show the station name followed by the number of loggings in May 2023.

Most Active Station: Radio Vostochnaya Zvezda (on air 24/7 until May 15+May 30)

You can always check out my daily waterfalls of the 43 mb to see when it, or another signal is present (or not): https://radiohobbyist.org/waterfalls/

Yes, I did check those. No sign of the ute since May 28.

I have been "out of the loop" since last Thursday or so. I'm not hearing it on the east coast tonight. Has it been gone for a few days?

I didn’t hear it yesterday or today, it was still there on Sunday.

``Press Release: Radio Angela To Cease Broadcasts May 31

WBCQ's Radio Angela, which began broadcasting a little over a year
ago, was a bold experiment in quality programming. It carried world
music (including the last Greek music on shortwave after Greece itself
stopped broadcasting on the sw bands), great literature read aloud,
new music releases by independent artists, some of the best vintage
music on any radio band, science and comedy. It avoided the political
and religious programming about which so many shortwave listeners love
to complain but which are also the bread and butter that keep most
private shortwave stations alive. The production standards were
frequently nearly public radio quality even when not sourced from
public radio. We also brought several new voices from around the world
onto the shortwave bands who had never been there before.

It was known from day one that its long term success would depend upon
attracting an adequate amount of both listener contributions and
program buyers outside of regular core hours.

Critically and artistically, Radio Angela was a great success, and
many thanks to all who gave us public and/or private support of any
kind. Financially, however, this has not proven to be viable. The
airtime buyers didn't come, and neither did enough donors.
Consequently, Radio Angela's last transmission as Radio Angela will be
May 31 (June 1 0200-0412 UTC).

Some individual programs are likely to continue in some form on the
WBCQ grid; my own individual flagship programs (From the Isle of Music
and Uncle Bill's Melting Pot) will be going on hiatus for a least a
month, possibly longer, on both 5130 and 7490, and my other shows will
be discontinued altogether. This is a purely financial matter, and if
we could find a nice wealthy philanthropist who loves shortwave,
perhaps this wouldn't need to happen.

This is hardly the first quality venture on radio or tv to end this
way - Radio Angela had more weekly broadcasts than the original Outer
Limits television series  to name but one example, and the roads of
radio generally are littered with the corpses of worthy broadcasting
concepts and stillborn projects. My thanks to Angela and Allan Weiner
for going out on a limb and backing the project, to all the content
providers for their hard work and excellence, to the technical staff,
some of whom are no longer with us, and to those of you who cared that
we were on the air.

Those who lament the religious and political programming that keep
private shortwave stations alive are welcome to consider us a case
study in what is likely to happen without those dollars. I obviously
lack the right answer, but I have learned a great deal about the right
questions. 73,

Got mine as well, thanks!

0522 UTC-OFF!

That was the longest broadcast I have ever heard from him! Must be a special thing for Memorial Day (Josiah is very Anti-War)? He came on live after the music earlier then went into another program after the live talk. Just played the music again (twice in one broadcast!), same talk again (sounds live but it’s the same as earlier). Maybe this will be sign off? Much stronger and stable S7-S8 reception at the end. I left the SDR recording going and checked back occasionally (no way I would listen to the whole thing!).

I've got them with a weak signal on the Maui Kiwi.

Looks like just noise on that KiwiSDR. Very close to the frequency this station is on but itís some sort of local noise, no recognizable carrier.

S7 with the KFS Omni KiwiSDR in California. Nothing on the KX4AZ KiwiSDR in Michigan. Weak on South American KiwiSDRs. Just a weak carrier here, only detectable in CW mode. Weird propagation?

0207 UTC-Weak but sounds like Spanish pop music?

Guessing AD149 Radio from Argentina with super weird propagation?

0245 - 0300 in ...   USB.!~!~!

Great sigs.  S9  w/ gud MOD.
Not sure of the mx... I'm too ancient.

Thatís Radio Free Whatever. This log is for the jammer that was all over the band.
