Good signal with Wild Bill Hickock show & ad for Kellogg's cereal. Thanks for the show!

Pretty weak & fading. Tuned in during a phone call that I guess is a prank call? Thanks for the show!

Steve'n'Seagulls covering "You Shook Me All Night Long"

VG signal

Thanks for the show!

Thanks much! I hope to be able to dig out enough audio to use it  :)

Have had audio on a few peaks. Sounded like older music with a woman singing. I would have a better signal, but the R8's lousy sync detector can't lock on to much anything, including this signal, but it's awesome to finally hear a signal from Lupo! Is an e-mail address available?

Pretty good signal here, but RFI from the washer. Caught the end of the NBC show "The Adventures of . . . ." Great to hear it again

Pretty good signal here again

Decent, clear signal with ID/e-mail address into "Stepping Stone"

Haven't heard an ID, but sounded like a British-accented DJ. Good signal!

The Outfield & then long talk about shortwave radio, CIDX barbeque, etc. Excellent signal

fkradio: Thanks for the tip on no attachments. I always send attachments to pirates & wouldn't've thought not to include one to an SWBC station

Just a general comment: Aside from my first two or so years of SWLing, I've avoided writing reports to major stations & instead went after pirates & occasionally smaller & private SWBC stations. One year in the early 2000s, I think, I sent something like 40 reports to stations in Peru, Bolivia, & Venezuela. I think my success rate was about 5% or so. Now, most of the government stations are gone, so I guess I should've written to them instead!  :P

Yeah, according to one of the links from Didu Heardat (thanks!), it's 400 W carrier and 650 lbs.! A GRC-26 in a remote area or on wheels behind a large pickup would be interesting

. . . or maybe a bit more than a large pickup:

For Sale / Wanted / Barter / T-368

I received a call tonight from a radio hobbyist who had recently been at a hamfest in NJ. There, he saw someone who had a T-368 transmitter that had recently been restored at the Tobyhanna Army Depot & had its audio opened up to 6 kHz. He said that it has spares, which I assume means a full extra set of tubes? My friend said that he'd tell others about it, so he told me & ask if I knew anyone interested. Because of the price and the weight, I don't. But I asked it was OK if I post it here.

This T-368 was made by B&W (I don't which version it is) & I believe it's capable of about 500 watts carrier from 1500 kHz to 20 MHz. They're huge beasts & about the closest that the Americans have to the German Rohde & Schwartz transmitters that the Dutch pirates use.

Anyway, the asking price on this transmitter is $2,000. I don't know if that's negotiable. I assume part of the price is because it was refurbed by the Army. My friend said he'd send the contact info of the guy who's selling it, so if you're interested, I can pass it along.

Neither I nor my contact have any actual connections to the sale of this equipment, but they *are* really cool pieces of equipment that I hear about more often than I see.

Clear Tangerine Radio ID by Raunchy Rick. I think the last time I heard it directly from the station was, maybe, '85? Been a long time since I've heard any relays of it, too. Thanks to the relay station!

Super signal with VH "Ice Cream Man"
