QSLs Received / Re: All India Radio QSL

Congrats!

I used to play that Cornershop song in my pirating days. It rattles off all the label's she had recorded for, which I thought was pretty cool.

Now you have to get that Partial India Radio QSL.

They start to pick up here around 22:00 UTC, Ray, and are best from 0:00 to 3:00 UTC. They're never overwhelming. I check a SDR in Sardinia and another in the Canary Islands to confirm it's them. Both usually have good signals from Indy. The one in Sardinia is the only Kiwi on the island and the one on Fuerteventura in the Canaries is the only Kiwi on that island.

The one in Sardinia has been on and off for the past couple of weeks. I don't know if they're having technical problems or the guy didn't pay his power bill?

They must still be having equipment problems from the hurricane last fall?

From a post on the Europirate board it looks like that's where this came from. Double good catch, Yankee.

Never mind, the post is gone from the SW Europirate board.

S9+10 with the Northern Utah KiwiSDR. Listening in Sync AM lower sideband to avoid QRM from the carrier that is there most nights on 6938 kHz. Since around 0450 UTC the Peskies have been talking non-stop on 6934 USB (no music heard from them here Skipmuck).

0427 UTC-Afro Blue by John Coltrane
0432 UTC-Cousin Mary by John Coltrane
0442 UTC-I Want To Talk About You (Live) by John Coltrane
0450 UTC-B Side Radio ID, so far we have heard side 1 and 3, side 2 is up next, hello to me and everyone else posting on the HFU (thanks!)
0451 UTC-Not sure what song now?
0500 UTC-Down to S5, still not recovered by 0511 UTC
0511 UTC-Bud Bigly speaking but in the noise now
0511 UTC-Next song on the album
0520 UTC-Signal too poor for Sync AM to lock on to (very weak)

Stay away from Marie, Shortwave, she's mine!

Equipment / Re: 11m Roger Beep audio
« on: Today at 05:43 »
My Uncle was a TV and radio repairman. I used to go to his house and operate his "licensed" CB station under his sort of supervision, required in those days. Not long after that the "roger beeps", the opened up audio bleeding all over the band and the local "CB Doctors" geeking up their radios began to show up. The worst thing to me was the "Echo Mic's", you couldn't understand a damned thing they were saying.

I remember when the legal limit dropped from 5 watts to 4 watts. All the pinheads were scouring the shops for those "new" old stock 5 watt radio's. Like that extra watt was going to make a difference?

Don't go away hurt, just go away.

0109 UTC Sounds like a YL talking to a parrot? The parrot is talking back too!
Obviously _2_ bird brains.

LMAO! That cat knows humor, Groucho Marx couldn't have done better. BTW, was Kitty's mother one of Al Fansome's cats? That's a Fansomian sense of humor.

 That should be captioned, "What meth and bath salts will do to you."

That's the late Brother Ralph Stair of the Overcomer Ministry in Walterboro, South Carolina. The cult is based in an old motel there and own's many properties in the region, as like many Fundamentalist churches here, it's main revenue comes from getting older members to will their homes and property to them when they die. They milk them of their savings long before death.

Ralph stumbled onto a trick from the Reverend Moon, using his followers as unpaid labor on his holdings, to generate more money, it's called slavery.

Now that Ralph is dead, his higher ranking followers keep that income stream flowing with the same methods and buy time on radio stations worldwide to play Ralph's sermons to rope more sheep into the flock.

It looks like You Know Who is sending a message for everyone to calm down? He was a Bodhisattva for those of you that didn't know it. It's nice that he sent a pic of where he's at these days and the one of Radio Bob's great-grandad was a nice gesture, too. He liked Bob, but thought he was a little odd.

I knew a guy in Ireland who used to relay a lot of pirates from the Continent. He'd send me tapes and I would relay them in the States. (and probably hit parts of Canada) One of the shows came from Belgium and was a C&W format but I can't remember the name of the station? I was more interested in the beers that came from that country.

Clutter Free, I use that SDR. Some of those North African stations blast in there. I can't understand a word of what they say, but I like the music.

Amateur Radio / Re: FCC Cancels W6WBJ License

Nothing but old men with ham licenses is going to be the death of ham radio. When they pass on, it will be gone. Young people aren't interested in old technology.

QSLs Received / Re: Radio Azteca eQSL from A.A.R.S. 22 Jan 2023
« on: January 26, 2023, 0326 UTC »
That's not an Aztec, that's a Maya lord. Know your Mesoamericans!

Bram, check out the mushrooms the Mexicans are putting in your quesadilla's. If they're blue, do not chew.

That Maya looks like he's plumb pixilated from mushrooms and a few too many pulque enemas.

The proto-psychedelic band, The 13th Floor Elevators had an electric jug player. The jug had an electret microphone on the outside and was tuned by the amount of pot they stuffed in it. When is the last time you heard an electric jug?
