While waiting in the parking lot of Westerly Hospital today I finally caught an FM Pirate.

When I'm by cities like Hartford, New Haven, Boston ect I will tune around the lower FM band looking for pirates. I have a list of several frequencies to check at different cities but have never had any luck.

Anyhow I had decent reception and audio at first and caught an ID right away,"88.5 FM, The Beginning" over Latin style music. I remember hearing their Shortwave broadcast and they mentioned their FM Frequency. A Spanish woman who said her name was Marie/Maria mention they have been trying to get their FM station back on the air after several months of serious technical problems with equipment, antenna, audio gear and fires in the studio, "Just about every Fricken thing has gone wrong..." and she went on for a little bit. This lady was quite funny with a seriously heavy Spanish accent. She sounded like Charo. The audio quality was very bad and may have been some interference from nearby stations. There was a lot of crackling type noise and cut outs then the power level just seemed to go down steadily for about 30 seconds then completely gone. What I managed to catch only lasted under 2 minutes.

I will try to dig up their email addy from the shortwave broadcasts and try to get some info. I may be able to pick this up at home.

2104 Music playing, very good reception S9+10 and nice USB audio!
2107 ID BFN Radio with remarks to Fried Chickin' into music.
2144 OFF

Thanks for the tunes.

1908 Music at a solid S9+10, Nice AM sound!  8)
1915 ID Ion Radio. Another ID at 1620z into cool cover of "Ghost Riders in the Sky", maybe the Outlaws.

Thanks for the music!

Nice to pick up a 22 meter beacon, this one from Winston, NC on 13564.89 CW.
Decent reception, enough for solid decode on Fldigi.  7 "RFs" in a row then a long dash.

15075 kHz

1611 Fighting to stay above noise but with some decent peaks. Billy Idol "White Wedding".
1623 At peaks, "Walking On Sunshine" playing" into "Rhinestone Cowboy".

0116 Ball Smacker on the air with yet another Wolverine style "Theme" program.
Caught the end of a Neil Young tune with a decent  S9 signal but reception got weak and
noisy in a few minutes. Too bad, you was sounding really good there for a few minutes Ball Smacker.
S5 signal now with really bad static crashes. I'll check back.

0128 All but in the noise now BS, too bad, always good music.

Thanks for the music!
