<I posted this on my new blog at http://hobbybroadcasting.blogspot.com/  I'll be posting updates like this and a lot of other minutia there that I wouldn't want to waste people's time with here>

The 2013 Pirate Radio Annual is now nearly finished and I'm taking advance orders for copies of the book. I've been finishing assembling and editing the audio tracks for this edition over the past few weeks and I just spent a couple of hours creating the master audio CD tonight. That means that I can match my mistakes in hitting the track indicator with the track listing. This in turn means that I can finally finish the text files and send them to the printer.

From there, the finished books should be ready in 4-6 weeks.

In case you are wondering what the Pirate Radio Annual is, it's a paperback book with an 5.5" x 8.5" trim size. This is the 4th edition. Each are divided into two parts: the first is pirate radio "articles" and the second part of the book is a listing of entries on North American shortwave pirate stations that were reported in the past year (and also European pirates that were reported in a large portion of North America). The book contains images from dozens of stations + contact information, URLs of websites, etc. The "articles" in this year's edition include "Dutch pirate radio, 1931–1967" by Kai Salvesen, "Shortwave Pirate Radio 2012: A Year in Review" by Chris Smolinski, "Internet Resources" (for listening), and "Recording and Archiving Pirate Radio for Future Generations."

This year's edition is 176 pages and contains an audio CD-R with sample tracks of audio from pirates from the past year. 72 different stations are represented on the CD....although the recording is on a CD-R, it is an audio CD that can be played in standard CD players, computers, etc. BTW, after creating hundreds of these CDs, I heard from one reader that the CD wouldn't fit properly in his slot-loading Mac computer. If you want to use it in one of these computers or device with a narrow slot, let me know and I can send your CD without a label.

If you want an advance copy, the price until December 7 is $15 + $3 shipping ($18) to the United States, $15 + $5 shipping ($20) to Canada and Mexico, and $15 + $10 shipping ($25) to the rest of the world.

You can either send a check or money order in US funds to:
Cabinet Communications
PO Box 109
Blue Ridge Summit, PA 17214

 or  you can send the $ via PayPal to info /at/ hobbybroadcasting.com

My apologies for the delays in producing this year's edition! It's been a challenge!

Decent signal, been hearing what sounds to me like a relay of a soccer game in Spanish. My Spanish isn't good enough to know who's playing or any other details.

While radios play a very important role in many societies especially the third world , Zimbabwean police have declared war on solar powered radios . In many African countries Zimbabwe included radio is the most important medium of communication and communities rely on it to keep themselves informed on news, local and international events. Low literacy levels and poor newspaper circulation makes dependence on newspapers negligible.The cost of a television set is beyond the reach of the majority, as many people live on less than a US$1 a day. Poor infrastructure is also another reason why people depend on solar powered radios as most rural areas have not been electrified.

On the 19th of February  2013 ,police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba told a news conference in Harare that possession and distribution of solar powered Short wave radios was illegal. She accused some opposition parties of distributing the ‘illegal devices’ to unsuspecting members of the public with the intention “to sow seeds of disharmony within the country especially now that the country is about to embark on the referendum and harmonised elections.” What followed was a series of raids on civic society organisations.

Fair signal here with blues music. I've been in and out of the radio room & haven't heard an ID, but ID per Walt on FRN.
Thanks for the show!

I've been slogging through the Pirate Radio Annual and I'm finally going through and figuring out what stations I need artwork from. If anyone (listeners or stations) would send any eQSLs or scans from these stations (particularly from 2012), I'd appreciate it...

Blue Ocean Radio
Bust a Nut Radio
Chamberpot Radio
Deliverance Radio
Eccentric SW
High Plains Relay Service
Hot Legs Radio
Liquid Radio
Mac in the Box Radio
Northern Relay Service
Pandora's Box
Radio Dead Man
Radio Free Manitoba
Radio Ga-Ga
Radio Nonsense
Random Radio
Radio Transamerica
Southern Relay Service
Turkey Breast Radio
Voice of Captain Ron SW

Borderhunter Radio

Stations only: Of course, I'd also be interested in artwork or eQSLs from stations not known to QSL, such as The Big Q, Bunker Radio, Dr. Who & Friends Radio Hour, Ghost of Pirate Radio, Magic SW Radio, Pissant Radio, Radio 2012 Int'l, Viking Radio, Vinyl Radio, W807, WAHR, etc.

Thanks much for your time & help!

One of the better signals I've heard from Underground. Could copy a shoutout to me just while listening via the speaker. <later>Sig seems to be getting weaker & static crashes are getting worse.
Thanks for the show!

RTN coming in with a bit better signal than usual tonight. '80s music, such as Midnight Oil. Announcements about the music & contacting the station. 1 Nice, clear ID so far.
Thanks for the show!

Weak/fair signal with oldies rock (such as "Blueberry Hill") and also Dutch polka music.
