I know redhat and several other ops disagree with me on this, but... IMHO any transmitted spectral content over about +/- 6 kHz (if you have an SIO 555 signal), and down to about +/-3 kHz for the average reception quality of a pirate, is wasted energy

Of Course I'm more Esoteric but I'm in the Belief that  You should transmit the best quality signal / audio for your listeners. I think it makes for a more enjoyable broadcast  I run 20hz -10khz audio but I have the ability to run full 20 - 20khz  If the listener has the ability to hear full bandwidth audio I'm sure they would like to.  If not they can decide on how much filtering is needed.  I have many reports sent to me that included an audio clip of the show and most are very enjoyable to listen to.  So Why Not if you can. 

BTW...   AM is the standard.. SSB is a compromise..  The key is the signal not be fatiguing

Broadcast Announcements / Radio Illuminati Frequency Change
« on: November 30, 2019, 0036 UTC »
Greetings Everyone   Due to Abysmal Propagation and the fact that I finally put up the new Dipole antenna.  Look for all future RI broadcasts on 5150 khz or 5165 khz.  We'll be sharing the frequency with Relay Station for all future Broadcasts

Thanks for listening

I'll get this sorted out as soon as I can get this Flux Capacitor to work..    From what I see in the Logs there a quite a few choices to listen to I hope that there is something for everyone to enjoy I think most Op's just have a limited amount of time to put together a show and get it on the air so going "live" may not be an option for some.. I'm in that group but I try to make it interesting..

The RF Workbench / Re: NCP driver sucks
« on: October 13, 2019, 2154 UTC »
I think the issue is the frequency your trying to use the device at..  looks like max Ft is 2Mhz Should be fine for AM 550Khz to 1700Khz  But not for 6Mhz +

General Radio Discussion / October is Pledge Month
« on: September 29, 2019, 1341 UTC »
Dear Home Listener.....
As you know October is Pledge month for all the Pirate stations in the country.. As you may know we're a Pirate outfit and get most of our funding through Plundering and Pillaging.. How ever we find the cost building new equipment and paying the government imposed financial penalties so you the home listener can enjoy our programs has exceeded our treasure chest.. So we must also turn to Grovelling for Dollars.. Your generous gift allows us the ability to explore new and exciting areas of Pirating. and the ability to afford "Girlfriend Experience Wenches" and to use financial lubrication to prevent detection As a Pirate Radio supporter, You can rely on our trusted fake news and Premier High Fidelity Programming today, tomorrow and in the future. So Mr. or Ms. Home Listener, we are a Pirate Station on the move. We have a super promotional idea that can bring Radio Illuminati from $500 million, to $1 billion in gross revenue. That is not about white power, nor is it about black power. It's about green power! Money! M-O-N-E-Y! We're talking about geometric progression. One... four... eight... 16... the numbers boggle the mind! So in conclusion, all we have to do is to get off the dime, and put this show on the road. Thank you very much.

For Sale / Wanted / Re: Looking for AM broadcast monitor/processor
« on: August 23, 2019, 2041 UTC »
For a couple hundred you can get an HP 8901 Modulation Analyzer on Ebay   It has audio output and is good to 1Ghz  will do all that you want and more  Can set display for peak hold as well.   I run the CRL AM 4 Mono system  Great System but can get grungy fast especially with low bit rate MP3  If your handy there is a Texar Eagle on Ebay that will do a good job of processing your sound

I bought these on Amazon for experimentation

Ltvystore 2600pcs 130 Values 1 ohm - 820K ohm 1/4W Metal Film Resistors Assortment Kit Assorted Set

Can't beat the price.. Xicon at Mouser are about 10 cents each same for Ohmite or KOA. I have bought large lots of Ohmite on EBay including the nice Ohmite cabinets

Electrolytics I buy from Mouser  I have found some bargains on EBay for Mylar caps 

Transistors only from Mouser or other reliable source.  Way too many fakes out there

There are a lot of Electronic surplus stores online where you might find other items at a good price I have bought from a few over the years   Switches/Fuse holder/ etc

I have 40 years of purchases in stock  lot's of UnObtanium on hand to keep my 30+ year test equipment and audio equipment working
