Cool. I have no quarrel with you, him or even furrehs in general. Just specific furrehs and sock puppets that ruined the other site. This is the only pirate site that I have left to access news. I can't lose it as well.

I disagree. It was like an insidious disease that kept spreading. And then the sock puppet gallery would post all sorts of messages of support and attack any sort of dissent. Many were scared to post at all lest they incur the wrath of the trolls that hide behind the anonymity of the internet. You can mark my words: this series of posts has probably already set in motion the aforementioned cancer. We will now be reading of this for the next few weeks. If not longer. Watch for lots of posts by newbies and other sock puppet I.D.'s that vigorously support the furrehs and viciously attack those who don't support them. I personally have nothing against them; I simply don't care. But after seeing the way the FRN was dominated by them I am VERY worried that the same thing will happen here.

One of the reasons that I left the Furreh Radio Network site was because it was becoming less about free radio and more about furries. One long, dreadfull series of posts concerned Boner The Dog or some such and his fight to change his name. Lets leave the furreh stuff on the furreh site, PLEASE!

Hearing techno-dance music here. Strong S-7 signal with QRN and QSB but very nice considering it's summer time. Always great to hear an old friend!
*** Update: Hey, thanks for the shout out RTN!

Got a nice S-5 signal with QRN and QSB. Signal strength gradually building.
Tuned in to hear YL singing, then OM announcer gave Blue Ocean Radio ID twice, the email addy of blueoceanradio@gmail.com.

Fantastic to hear another great Canadian free radio broadcaster!

Voice of Laryngitis. What a way to start, a TRUE classic. Still have the QSL. Next was TNFM. A true Canadian classic.

I agree, not just because I'm also Canadian but because I came from a military family and the war was very real for many of us. But even in Canada we are comparatively untouched by war. You need to go to places that lost even more to see people that really appreciate what they have. Russia in particular, but France, Holland, Belgium etc.
As a young child in the mid '60's I recall watching old war film footage in school before rememberance day. Even after nearly 50 years the images of people being machine gunned and buried (some were still alive) still remain fresh in my mind.
I was driving through France a few years ago with my wife's cousin who was a child in France in WWII. We would drive past fields where farmers still farm around several hundred white crosses in their fields and treat those crosses with reverence and respect. We would drive through villages and he would point to a village square and point out in broken English: "Here the Germans shot 60" and "here the Germans killed 35". Even after 60 years the pain and sorrow are still very evident. Winner or loser, victor or vanquished, soldier or civilian, war sucks. It's not fun or glorious, it just sucks. Lest we forget.

Hey, I got a Pixel receive only antenna. Been using it for a few months now and love it. It's pricey but well worth it. Using cheap satellite TV coax you can mount it more then 200' away. Using expensive satellite TV coax you can mount it up to 1000' away. Google them if you're interested.

Usual brutal signal on a good band for a change. Heard Jeff Foxworthy do a Redneck stand up routine, into a YL doing a country song. Crystal Clear I.D.
I hear Radio True North so strong so frequently that I listen to it while I'm working in my shop. Sounds pro and getting better all the time.


Donna was heartbroken when you threw her over for Belinda Carlisle back in '79.
You think Donna was upset; Belinda was livid!

Got a nice SSB signal from Wolverine. Usual good audio, about S-5 over S-2 noise.

Got lots of music and announcer on 6945. Noisy band makes copy tough.

Money on the way (PayPal) for two copies.

Caught Aldo Nova "Fantasy" and Ramones "Rock 'n Roll High School" among others. Haven't heard an ID yet but judging by the great music mix, crushing signal (S-9+!!!), and terrific audio I'll guess it's Radio True North. Always a pleasure!

Just heard "Video Killed the Radio Star" then into ID and DJ patter by OM about summer conditions. Nice, strong S-7 signal on a noisy band. Typically outstanding audio. Always great to hear an old friend!
