North American Shortwave Pirate / Amphetamine Radio 6930U 0300z 09-27-15
« on: September 27, 2015, 0307 UTC »
Tuned in at 0300z to Eagles - Lyin' Eyes.  AR ID at 0305.

Weak signal tonight, just above the noise.  Maybe S3 at best.

I was tuned away and missed the first SSTV image but got a noisy decode on the others.

Thanks AR!

This may just be a drunk ham but is still a pirate none the less.

Been playing music non-stop for over 2 hours now, just about everything from Little Richard to The Cars.  No IDs or call letters or announcements of any kind.

Really nice audio on an S9 signal.

Off at 0917z after the national anthem.  This guy belongs on 43 meters!

Chris, please feel free to move this post to one of the other forums as you see fit.

On with organ music.  Some dead air, then into what Shazam says is "You're Gonna Miss Me" by The Spades.

S9 signal with nice audio.

Thanks whoever you are!

On with Van Morrison - Wild Night, then Elton John - Crocodile Rock.

S9+10 with deep fades into the noise.

Sent just after Amphetamine Radio signed off.

Theme from The Jeffersons played a few times.  Twangy Radio ID at 0211z.  Thanks for the corrected ID Harry!

S9 signal with pretty thin audio.

General Radio Discussion / Running Android apps on a Windows PC
« on: May 14, 2015, 0304 UTC »
My cheap Android tablet died tonight while listening to XLR8.  Rather than make a late night run to Wal-Mart, I decided to see if there was a way to run Shazam on a Windows PC.  After a bit of searching, I found an Android emulator for Windows  called BlueStacks App Player.  Downloaded and installed it, logged into the Play Store with my Google account, and installed the Shazam app.  Everything worked perfectly and I was able to ID most of the obscure music that XLR8 played tonight.

Although I have only used it to run Shazam, the BlueStacks web site claims that it will run 96% of the Android apps out there. YMMV.

On at 0308z with Foreigner - I've Been Waiting For A Girl Like You.  Nothing heard after.

About an S5 signal, not much above my noise level.

Tuned in at 0355.  Blues music, but no ID heard yet.  Not a real strong signal, but enough to copy above the noise.

Just heard a BOR ID at 0400.

Thanks BOR!  Thanks for the shout too!

Blue Ocean Radio playing some nice bluegrass tunes.

Pretty good signal here tonight, about S7 - S9, well above the noise, very nice audio as well.

BOR ID at 0348.  0426z - Dayyyyy-O!

Thanks BOR!
