I frequently edit the list of pirate emails and stations that do not QSL on the Wiki: https://www.hfunderground.com/wiki/index.php/Pirate_radio_station_email_addresses

I have a separate section for old emails and stations that did not QSL. This makes searching for currently emails easier while still retaining the old ones. My question is: how long should it be before a station is moved to the "Inactive" category? For example, if a station is not heard for a month, is that pirate "Inactive"? Obviously there are exceptions for stations that are usually less active (e.g. DB Cooper Radio is only heard once per year, so a one month absence is normal), and such stations will be kept on the list. The options are assuming the station was active more often than the specified time period. I hope people can understand this post, I am not sure if it makes sense.

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 March 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 March 2023.

Most Active Station: North American Pirate Relay Service (20 broadcasts)
