Hey Sealord,

Thanks for the tip. I searched YouTube & it sounds just like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYJ6PylrgL8&feature=related

I just assumed it was a jammer.  :P

Funny thing is that I'm listening to the recording now & some pirate was goofing around over top of it, vocally doing the Close Encounters theme, singing song bits, etc. It was in SSB and I was recording in AM, so I haven't been able to/decode ID any announcements from the pirate.

I'll e-mail a recording of it to you if you'd like.

Thanks & have a great day!

Yeah, I heard & recorded this, too. The jammer sounded like 6 or 7 electronic tones, ascending up in pitch like a staircase. I've never heard SWBC on 6940 kHz & wouldn't've guessed that a jammer would so quickly find & jam a station in the middle of nowhere frequency-wise. Anyone else know what this might've been? ???

Funny, it seemed to decode OK in LSB on the R8.  :) 
Thanks, Turtlehead, for the response. I've been missing your shows, but I'm trying...
Have a great evening!

Much better signal here, clear IDs right away. I had it in LSB on 6930 on the nose, so not sure if it was in DSB or if he switched modes. I thought maybe it was being relayed by Turtlehead Radio, but maybe not.

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!

Really nice comparison & interesting article. Yeah, I always really enjoy the Channel Z DX tests, so it's really cool to see the side-by-side comparisons (especially because I missed this particular one).
Thanks for the article!

Thanks for the show!

On immediately after Dr. Tim audio & transmitter went off. BIG signal with IDs and WMPR-like techno show

Thanks for the show & please QSL

Been listening to Radio Dr Tim with the lights off, beside the Christmas tree, on the Hallicrafters SX-96. Lots of Christmas music. Very nice. Also heard the Morse code a few min ago, so I guess it was part of the program. Deep fades here, but mostly pretty good.

Thanks to Dr. Tim & also to the relay station!

Hearing standup comedy right now that seems to be the same as was reported last night on Captain Morgan's Christmas show, so that's who I'm putting my bet on.

Yeah, Radio Malta was on, but much weaker than 10/31. Rave-on Radio signed on at 0200. Started fair/good here & is now really solid.

I think that very few people in the US know anything about shortwave radio. Probably well below 1% of the population. But the really great thing is that even 0.33 percent of the US is a million people. If it's even 0.1 percent, that's still 300,000 people and stations like Wolverine Radio and XFM can reach every one. Wide geographic coverage of a niche audience is pretty cool.

Likewise, I've thought that the aspect of creating our own culture is a pretty interesting thing. TV shapes the bulk of our culture, but we've got a little eddy of current that, although still part of the river, is a bit different. And I've had the pleasure of meeting a number of pirate listeners and sometimes it feels almost like I've already met the person because we have a number of things in common that few other people understand

WBNY. Pretty late in the evening, so maybe a relay?

Thanks for the link. Looks like the columnist has somewhat of an interest in pirates or at least isn't really opposed to most.

One question that I've wondered about for the 20 or so years since I've heard about RF fingerprinting. What do mods do to that fingerprint. For example, when Poet did all kinds of mods to his Valiant, it had to change the RF fingerprint. I would think that just changing a tube could conceivably change it. I'd like to see some full-out studies on this technique.

For example, two unmodified Viking Valiant II transmitters should have more similar fingerprints than a Viking Valiant II and a Knight T-150, for example. But, if one of those Viking Valiant II transmitters is heavily modded (audio and RF sections), I would think that it not only wouldn't have the same fingerprint anymore, but it probably wouldn't even be in the same "family" of fingerprints as other Valiant IIs.

I guess what it comes down to, for the cautious pirate, is: if pirates are also hams, they should operate on HF with ham-only equipment. I doubt that the FCC would be sitting around, trying to fingerprint every ham transmitter to see if they can match with a pirate signal, but an ounce of prevention...
