Into the new Pirates Week at 0430...started it, heard a Windows "ding" then into it again. Fading down now, but for a while this was coming in with a perfect signal & I had to look to see that it was 6925 and not 7490 or some other 50-kW station.
Thanks for the show!

BIG S9+10 signal here with great audio. Lots of messing around with playback speed of the program. Last time, I heard what I thought was multipath echo on the broadcast, but now I think it was probably just the op fading echo on & off different parts of the program. Ha!

Hi all,
First of all, I thought I'd thank Pirate Radio Boston & Mysterious Mystic Radio for writing and sending programs so that I can do better entries and have studio-quality audio for the 2013 PRA CD. If any other stations want to do the same, that would be great. If not, I'll soon be e-mailing stations with entry info, etc. The station e-mails will probably start going out in the next week or two (but I've still got a lot of entries to finish, so it'll be a while until they're all out).

I've been writing a lot over the past month, getting audio files together, and trying to reduce my learning curves on InDesign & a newer edition of Photoshop. We'll see when I'm closer to having it ready for the printer...


Country song right now. Still VG on fade ups, but sig is now more out than in

Wow, really good signal here today! Better than I get from a lot of North Americans in AM mode.
Signal doesn't seem to be all that wide, so I'm keeping it on 4 kHz.
Thanks for the test!

Just tuned in at the very end & caught about the last minute off the sign off announcement. Then, someone else said hi & RML came back on briefly. Really nice signal here.
Thanks for the show!

Tuned in to Thomas Dolby "She Blinded Me with Science" & heard a "live from Zipper Lake" ID. Like Chris said, better than normal signals here.
Thanks for the show!

Obliterated here by strong CW. Could occasionally hear some audio. If he moved out of the 40m band, I'd probably have good copy.

Best sig I've had from SRS, mostly hanging around S7, but starting to have longer, deeper fades. A couple of clear computer YL IDs, a rap song by Dirt Nasty, a masturbation hotline segment, etc. I think it's going into a Pirates Week show now.
Thanks for the show,

Station on & off with test counts & trying to eliminate distortion in audio. Nice signal, but some "rippling" distortion. Not sure if it's RF feedback or something else. Am recording it if op's interested in how it sounds here.

Hearing flute music at 1337 on freq. Long, slow fade ups. Haven't heard any IDs yet

Chris & Token: Thanks for the comments! That helps a lot. I was looking at reviews last night & saw a lot of positives on the SDR-IQ, but also saw a number of people who said that it was much noisier than the typical receiver. Do many of these receivers stack up well against the older contingent of top-end hobby-level radios (e.g., R-8, R-5000, ICR-71, NRD-525)?
Thanks again!

Can the SDR-IQ record chunks of spectrum like the Perseus? When I get an SDR, I want it for recording ranges overnight or when I'm away from home...oh and I think it'd be really handy for hearing the Irish church pirates on the CB band.

General Radio Discussion / 3220 kHz
« on: January 15, 2013, 0451 UTC »
Working on the Pirate Radio Annual tonight & I came across some loggings of stations on 3220 kHz (presumably all harmonics of 1610 pirates or Part-15 stations, such as logs by Joe Farley, N8Hensley, and Kilocat7. Just wondered if anyone was still hearing these or actively tuning 3200-3420 kHz looking for these harmonics?

Interesting stuff.

Have a great night!
