Not sure what the heck this is. Announcer keeps calling it Vietnam Radio and says "yowser" all the time. Someone else keeps saying "Canada Sucks" and attempts to sing the Canadian National Anthem. They also play music, but I can't make out what it is. Been going on for a good 40 minutes or so now.

(Note, he kept referring to it as 3843, and my Grundig might be off a hair, so try that too).
More info: Calls himself Captain Dave, and gives a call sign of KR4tHY (which comes up 'passive' on QRZ.com)

FM Free Radio / Question on pirate radio
« on: July 28, 2016, 1603 UTC »
I know this is probably the wrong forum, but I couldn't find one to match it, so I apologize.
I'm interested in pirate radio found on MW. Are there any stations around anymore ... maybe on 1710 or on the low end?
I did see a forum for MW loggings, but that seemed to be for licensed stations, so that's why I posted here.
Any info would be appreciated ... fascinated by finding pirate stations, whatever band they're on. Thanks.

General Radio Discussion / Question from a new guy (pirates on AM, FM)
« on: February 09, 2014, 1623 UTC »
Hello, just getting into pirate radio so please forgive me if there's an obvious answer to this. I just picked up my first pirate broadcast last night on 6.925 and it was a lot easier than I thought (portable shortwave, wire antenna). Came in loud and clear.

What I'm wondering is how common are pirate broadcasts on the MW band (and for that matter, FM), how hard is it to find them? Would love to find some on AM and FM. I don't have any fancy antennas or anything, but I do have a Sangean PR-D5 which is an excellent AM Dxer. Thanks for any info/tips ...
