Just turned on the radio, heard a quick computer ID, then a bit of country music, & off. Probably about a total of 10-15 seconds. Nice signal. Not sure if it was USB or AM (and I was fortunate enough to have it tuned right on the carrier)?

Thanks for the show!

I didn't write down all of the letter groups this time, but a number of them were the same as from the last ULX transmission. Not sure if it was the same transmission otherwise. And, someone is having fun with the ID. This time is was announced as LXU four times before signoff.

Pretty good sig & I have a recording if the op is interested

Please QSL...

In honor of WEAK, I'm listening to his old shows on Sealord's site:


Thanks to both!

Thanks for the show!

Caught this last night one the recorder. Nice signal, but I had the R8 in USB & the broadcast was in AM. On for about 20 min or so, probably testing because there's a lot of dead air. I don't have time to listen to the file right now, but I plan to go through it & see if there are any IDs. Seemed to strong to be from Europe, but you never know  :)

THanks for the show!

Not a lot of audio, but clear singing coming through. Sounds like older, slower blues with a woman singer.

Thanks for the show!

I'm close to being done with the first pass of station entries for the 2012 PRA. If you ran a pirate in 2011, please check your station e-mail over the next week or two. I'll be sending entries so that you have a chance to review your entry for correctness. If you have sample studio audio or sample QSLs, that would be great.

I've lined up some QSLs and have off-air audio edited for 20 different stations, so I've gotten a start on everything, but I'm sure there's plenty of good stuff out there that I don't have. Also, I don't like to bother people with requests for audio or QSLs, but the last two people I asked for permission to use QSLs said that they were excited to have their names/QSLs in the book. So, if you'd like to have some QSLs or audio in the book, let me know what you have from 2011 (although it'd probably be easier for you if you have everything on a website).

Oh, one thing specifically that I can use right now that I can think of is SSTV pics of Wolverine Radio from 2011. Very few were posted this past year and Wolverine's scans load in seriously slanted on my computer.

Thanks to everyone for your help!

Shortwave Pirate / Radio Ga-Ga (tent) 6925U 1/28 1342+
« on: January 28, 2012, 1343 UTC »
Decent sig, just tuned in. Judging by everything, my guess is Radio Ga-Ga.

Johnny Cash "Ring of Fire" at 1349. Seemed to be all older country music, so maybe not Ga-Ga, but signal & time sure sound like it. Seemed to either sign off or fade away around 1358

Thanks for the show!

Shortwave Pirate / unid, 6945L, 1/27, 2245

Sounds like two stations on at the same time, but I'm having trouble figuring out what this is...

Shortwave Pirate / unid, 6925U, 1/26, 0715
« on: January 26, 2012, 1257 UTC »
Started playing a light pop song with a female singer at 0715 UTC in AM. The song was really weak and went off (but weak enough that I couldn't tell if it faded out), but then the song came blasting in a minute later in USB, with a bit of distortion. Have a recording, if the operator's interested.

Please ID?

Shortwave Pirate / Radio Ga-Ga (tent) 6925U 1/21 1358+
« on: January 21, 2012, 1402 UTC »
Weak sig & time makes me think Radio Ga-Ga, but I haven't heard an ID yet. Weak enough here that I might not hear an ID, so I thought I'd post to at least alert others that someone is here. Sounds like 1920s/early '30s jazz.

Thanks for the show!

BunCom with VG sig here (as opposed to the last few times when I had no trace) with IDs, Belfast add, etc.

Thanks for the show!

First of all, Merry Christmas to everyone. Thanks to all of the stations for the Christmas broadcasts (Iíve missed every show this weekend because of traveling and having an insufficient setup, but thatís another story).

Iím a little further ahead of the game this year and Iíve been starting to write entries for the 2012 edition of the Pirate Radio Annual. So, if youíd like to contribute information about anything, photos, or programming in the MP3 format, please e-mail it to me. The sooner I receive anything from stations, the easier it will be for me to write it and make it more accurate.

Thanks for all of your help & have a great Christmas!

Thanks for the show & please QSL

Equipment / AN/FRR-22, FRR-23, etc.
« on: August 22, 2011, 2125 UTC »
I bought a Hammarlund SP-600-JX26 yesterday at a hamfest. While searching around a little for variations between the different versions, lot numbers, etc., I found some info on other military receivers that are interesting.

Specifically, the SP-600, R-388, R-390, R-390A, & R-392 are hugely popular receivers. But, I never see anything about the AN/FRR-22 & An/FRR-23. These are general-coverage receivers (but no AM or 160m) made by RCA with 29 tubes (!) from the early '50s. They seem to have some interesting features (6 filter positions, dimmer control on the front-panel lights, 2 headphone jacks, separate volume control for headphones, etc.)

I found a pic at: http://www.navy-radio.com/rcvrs/images/frr22-01.JPG

Anyone have one of these receivers or know why they don't seem to be for sale? Were they much more expensive than the R-390As and SP-600s of the day? Did they have a design flaw?

Thanks & have a great day!
