A great pirate mystery...  I love it! 

Haven't caught YHWH in Tejas but thanks to all for the updates.

Yep, that's in the 11 meter portion and there's no telling what you'll find in there when the band is open.

Last time I listened and heard anything there, it was a "jamming party" and the one with the most power/antenna won.  Constant interference but after listening for a while, I realized that two of the stations were talking to each other and badmouthing the rest - while the rest tried their best to jam the signals of the two stations who were talking.

A urinating match, so to speak.... with tons of foul language.  Kind of like a combination of the Jerry Springer Show, Wolfman Jack (RIP), 2kw and D104's with reverb and roger beeps.

Bump because it's one heck of a resource.  ;D

Working on my ham ticket at the moment, and if I ever get a general or higher license, I'll be staying the frak off those specific frequencies to be sure.  

Good Luck getting your ticket.   :)

Hell of a noise - don't know what it is.   S-9 at peaks in Tejas.

dit-dit-dit-dit-dit-dit (NOISE after 6 dits)

00:44 UTC  and now it sounds like there are two of them.

00:48 - now it's eight dits before a noise.

I loved and still love good AM radio, I'm from that generation that listened at night to WLS and other stations.

There are several forces at work against AM radio, the first of which (in my opinion) is audio quality.  Listeners have so many choices and AM audio isn't of the quality that this group is used to.  This argument is made to me when I attempt to introduce old jazz/blues to people - "I like it but the sound quality is intolerable."  So, Charley Patton goes unheard.   :-[

YES, the programming on AM radio is dismal at best (my opinion again).

And there's nothing like a good baseball/football game on AM radio given the right broadcasters.  I grew up listening to Jack Buck & the Cards.  Not bad at all, eh?   ;D

02:49 UTC  I am hearing music way down in the noise.  S-5 noise in Tejas.
03:11 UTC  Still hearing music, propagation has been rough the past several days.
