Just received the proof copy tonight. Noticed a couple of relatively minor errors, but nothing that I'll stop printing for. So, I'll be approving it shortly and hopefully I'll get copies soon.

Also, Aurora, I received the pre-order and logged it. Thanks!

Whew! Just wanted to let you know that everything's been sent off to the printer. Thanks for all of the positive comments! The extra 56 pages added more time than last year...or maybe I'm slowing down faster than I had realized in my old age.

Here's the updated info: A couple of “articles” in the front, 161 North American station entries, and 13 European station entries. Same specs as last year (paperback, 5.5” x 8.5” trim, color gloss cover), but 184 pages.

The CD is just like last year (except that all clips are new): Clips from 84 different stations in North America and Europe. Nearly all clips were from 2010. The CD-R is in standard audio format. If you use a tight slot-loading CD drive (such as in a Mac laptop) and don't want a label on your CD, just let me know.

Cost is $16 + $2.50 shipping to the U.S.

You can send checks or money orders to:

or you can send via PayPal to:

I'm expecting to ship the books in about a month. I'm not yet sure about the shipping costs for Europe and Canada. The USPS has gotten difficult with international price breaks, etc. that I want to be sure.

General Radio Discussion / 2011 Pirate Radio Annual update
« on: April 04, 2011, 1302 UTC »
Hi, just wanted to let you know that the 2011 PRA is close to being sent to the printer. I just finished the CD last night and have been checking copies to be sure that everything is burning OK. I’ve got a couple of European station entries to finish, I need to edit and/or rewrite the front matter, add some cross references, change the spine size, and fix all of the folios…then it should be ready to go. My guess is that it will go to the printer this week (hopefully in the next two or three days?).

This year’s edition has a couple of “articles” in the front, 161 North American station entries, and 12 or 13 European station entries. It will have the same specs as last year (paperback, 5.5” x 8.5” trim, color gloss cover), but it should be 180 pages (or possibly two or so more)

I’ll give ordering info when I send it to the printer (I’d rather know that it’s gone, rather than have orders come in and then have unexpected delays, like s computer crash or something). I think cost will be $16 + $2.50 shipping to the U.S., but I’ll verify that later.

Thanks for everyone’s help!

Irish folk music with electronic voices between songs. Hard to copy the ID without listening to the recording on headphones over & over. One ID was something like "the station that always wants your Lucky Charms." Have a recording if the op's interested.

Thanks for the show & please QSL if you do that sort of thing:

Nice clear ID a few min ago & I'm going to get off the internet now so that I can get a better recording of it. If the op is out there, I have a recording & would like a QSL. Thanks!

Shortwave Broadcast / Re: Radio Cairo on 6270kHz @ 0233z

Yeah, I remember a station, I think KUSA (the one from about 20 years ago, not today's version) riding VOA's 7415-kHz carrier for about 20 min. Makes for a nice AM (essentially) signal and I'd guess that it's tougher to DF, too.

In the car last night, I could hear some Spanish talk & music. Not enough in to ID, but I guess it was Radio Celestial.

Shortwave Broadcast / Re: Running Log From Tonight

I agree with everything that Token said & would also like to mention that MW/AM callsigns are really helpful. "Weak music station possibly" and "multiple stations competing for the frequency" could apply to nearly every frequency on the band.

That said, please keep logging! I really appreciate seeing your logs and everyone else's, too. Not that many people seem to be doing it any more...or they're only logging the difficult-to-hear truly DX stations. It's always interesting to see what others are tuning in.

moribund112: Sorry for not replying, just checked the thread today.

RF Burnz: Thanks for posting the link!

Tube SW: Hope you've received your copy by now.

BTW, I forgot to mention here that shipping to Canada is $4 and the shipping is $9 to the rest of the world.

Thanks !

The books arrived & I sent all backorders out last week. A few more copies will be going out tomorrow.

Just received the proof copy from the printer last night and approved the printing this morning.

Getting closer...

Thanks! To: Cabinet Communications

General Radio Discussion / pre-orders for 2010 Pirate Radio Annual
« on: March 17, 2010, 1451 UTC »
The 2010 Pirate Radio Annual is at the printer and being finished. It should be available within 3-4 weeks, but I'm now taking pre-orders. It is:

* 126 pages
* perfect bound with full-color cover
* with audio CD-R

It profiles 166 different shortwave pirates, programs, and relayed stations that were heard in 2009. Other features are profiles of the 10 best-heard European shortwave pirates in North America, plus information for beginners on tuning pirates and shortwave radio.

The CD-R is in the standard CD format & contains audio clips from 75 different stations (nearly all clips were from 2009 broadcasts but a couple were from 2008 and 2010).

Price is $17 ($15 + $2 shipping) in the U.S. Sorry, I'm not sure how much shipping will be to Canada & the rest of the world, so I'm not taking advance orders from these areas until the books come in and I can weigh them.

You can send checks or money orders to:

Cabinet Communications
POB 109
BRS, PA 17214

Or if you're a 21st-century kind of person, you may send $17 via PayPal to info@hobbybroadcasting.com. If you take this route, please also e-mail me so that I'm aware of the transaction.
