6925u, 4-12-13, 45343
Not so crashy as the other night, so the S8 signal has a fighting chance.
On at 0251z.

0301z - Iron Maiden
0306z - RML ID and mention of my guess. Evening guys - glad things are fixed up.
0312z - AC/DC - Hells Bells
0322z - Alice In Chains - I Stay Away
0330z - An 80's tune that reminds me of college bar beer brain fog  ;).
0336z - Off - thanks for the show guys!

I'd say the mic audio is pretty good - perhaps a bit muffled relative to the music. I have to boost the high end to hear some words clearly. The level of the audio seems a bit stronger than earlier shows.

I've been hearing weak music, mostly a male singer, intermixed with occasional talk since 2320z. Pops up briefly with nice audio for a very short time, but not long enough to tell what the music is. Seems to be getting slowly stronger.

2345z - Song appears to be in spanish and the intermixed talk also. Might be some fishermen chatter underneath it too. Gonna guess this is a pesque playing some tunes for the fleet.

Caught the very end of this. At 2213z, a nice S9 signal playing Devo - Whip It, then  ending with CYOT in CW. Off at 2318z.


This topic has been moved to European Pirate.


I can't hear 'em well enough for an ID, so I'll just move 'em ;)


QSLs Received / Mike Radio, TX test QSL
« on: February 26, 2013, 0202 UTC »
Thanks to Mike Radio for this nice qsl. Heard Mike testing a new TX and got this note:

Thanks for your report! Mike Radio is testing a new transmitter. (see picture)
The used antenna now is a very simple wire antenna (poor performance) . This spring (2013) a delta-loop fullsize 20 meter will be in use. Top 16 mtr.
Also a 2 x 20 meter dipole will be new than. Both openline fed (max 2kW capacity); so the Telefunken can be used in a wide band-range. : -) Hope reception will/must improve!
Tuner: du 1500 T
USB en AM was about 30% of max pwr.

Thanks for reporting and till next time!

Thanks Mike  8)
