Shortwave Pirate / Old Time Radio 3204.7 1004-1041+, 19 August 2014
« on: August 19, 2014, 1043 UTC »
Looks like that old time radio Pirate is back on.  On the air now at this odd time 1041 UTC on 3204.7.  Old radio pgms like I heard on 3389.73 on July 8th.  "My Sister Irene".   End of the pgm at 1029 w/CBS ID, then another pgm "The Fred McMurray Show". Decent signal but quick fades and noisy.

Here's a link to the other video of Northwoods R. for the morning transmission on 6925 USB, at 1205, 1223, and 1228 UTC, 3 August 2014.  Good signal again.  Interesting versions of the Rock songs. 



Here's a link for a video of Saturday nights reception, 3 August 2014 UTC date, of Northwoods R. 6935U, Captain Morgan Shortwave 6924.7, and the Unid. on 6925.26.  The Unid. shows the signal coming on the air (forgot to turn up the volume), and then the music.



Just found Northwoods Radio with a huge signal on 6925U playing a string instrument version of Red Hot Chilipeppers song at 1204, 3 August 2014.  ID at 1205.  Very nice signal.  I'll make a video a little later.

Here's a link to a video I made of reception of 6940U Wolverine Radio and 6925U Radio Free Whatever as heard here in south-central PA.  They were heard in the time period of 0212-0225 UTC, 27 July 2014.  Nice signals from both.  Favorite oldies from Wolverine and entertaining chatter by the guys on RFW.  Check it out;
