Hearing 92.7 in Cuba (Radio Rebelde) and Cayman Is (Star927) right now 17:06 from EM66

Fishing Drift Net Beacons / fishing beacon 160 meters

Using the online rx from Northern Utah WebSDR I can hear IX3 in weak CW on 1806 KHz. I cannot hear it on my home dipole at all. Maybe it's in the Pacific, which would explain why the Utah receiver detects it and I don't. It appears to repeat itself three times every four minutes or so.

I've heard these things on both 160 and 80 meters over the years. They're not really a nuisance given their infrequent timing and weak signals. I always viewed them as a curiosity and only knew they were fishing beacons from hearing other ops talk about them.

It's mixing with the Flight 93 memorial station on fades, but otherwise a decent signal.

I heard "Hooked on a Feeling" maybe one song ago, but the station was weak. Seemed to go off air just now. Maybe it faded away completely.

It just reappeared on 1720 with "Eye of the Tiger" playing now.

1710 AM Radio Corsair 0625 utc

Just heard the ID for Radio Corsair and DJ commentary. He did an excellent job clearly describing the artists. Love this music. Good job. The last song is being played now.

I noticed that I can listen in USB when fading and interference get bad.

I've had this station on in the background for an hour and it's been nonstop techno. The signal has been getting stronger, although I can hear the Flight 93 memorial station underneath it.

I've only recently been listening for pirates, so I cannot say if it is Radio Corsair. From the previous comments, I'd say it's a close match.

Lots of QSB, s5 to s9. Heard id and weird Christmas songs.

I tuned in to 4015 USB just to hear RFW fire back up around 0156 UTC. Not familiar with the playlist, although I like it.

I'm enjoying the pirate listening near amateur bands. I'll soon be making some more dipoles, especially for 40 and 75 meters. My current antennas are coax (75 ohm CATV) fed and cut for the CW portions.

I heard the weak signal, as well. No s meter bump, though. Sounded like rock music, but I could be wrong.

Yep. That's an improvement.

Great signal strength.

s9 on a 160/80 meter fan dipole using a Yaesu ft-890. Audio sounds like a microphone put in front of a speaker. Sounds awful. Heard "Radio Free Whatever" more than once.
