For those who haven't already seen, I have an extensive archive of recordings of pirate stations and many other things on shortwave and other bands. I mostly use KiwiSDR receivers to hear may things I cannot hear from my location, but I occasionally post recordings of stations heard on my Sony ICF-2010. I think you will be pleasantly surprised! I record almost everything of interest I hear.

North American Shortwave Pirate / UNID 6955 AM 0234 UTC 3 JAN 2023
« on: January 03, 2023, 0236 UTC »
S7 with the KPH-HF KiwiSDR.

0234 UTC-Choir music?
0235 UTC-OFF with no announcement

Listening on the K3FEF KiwiSDR, interesting conversation about FM pirate stations they operated and other pirate stations.

This is a list I have compiled based on loggings here on the HFU. It shows all the North American shortwave and mediumwave (AM) pirates heard in the month of December 2022. 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 December 2022. The most active station (other than UNID with 101) was B Side Radio with 16 broadcasts. There was a total of 292 broadcasts this month.
