I have Channel Z on 6925 KHz AM at 1449z playing U2's "I Will Follow" and then into Nirvana at 1449 UTC. Signal is only fair, maybe S5 on peaks. Mention of a test transmission and then closing down with the Sex Pistols at 1506 UTC.
Sign on was 1425z as per the SDR recording.

RFW at sign-on with Dick Weed and company. Nice S9 signal but some peskie interference.

Thanks to Dimbulb for the tip and ID. Radio Experience on 6240 KHz AM. Eclectic mix of music. "A Horse with No Name" at 2347 UTC. Good S8 signal.

There have been several posts here over the last few weeks about the recent raids in the Boston area, but I came across this article which I hadn't seen before. It gives some pretty good insight into how these stations serve certain communities. There's even a picture of a seized transmitter. The transmitter looks like one of the Veronica designs from about 15 years ago or so.

BROCKTON – For thousands of Brockton residents, tuning in to a pirate radio station is a connecting them to home.


Touch 106.1 FM has openly flaunted the FCC for years, and had a huge audience. Yesterday they had all of their gear seized in a raid by US Marshals. I thought I heard there may have been a couple of other FM busts in Boston yesterday, but haven't found that information yet.

There is some video footage of the bust here:


"Fire up a shortwave radio and you won’t hear Beyonce or Britney, because these bandwidths are rarely used to transmit the hits. Favored by spies, radio hams and secretive political groups, the transmissions in the shortwave frequencies tend to be resolutely noncommercial, not to mention unmusical. But Russell Hoffman, an engineer from Pittsburgh who runs a firm called Evaton Technologies, doesn’t agree. He is just about to release the world’s first instrument designed to allow adventurous musicians to add the odd and often eerie sound of shortwave radio to their aural palette. To Hoffman and his fellow explorers,  music doesn’t just have to be about vibrating strings."

"Commercial free, jazz radio station, WBGO has been attacked by pirates. Their broadcast signal has been over ridden by a rogue unlicensed pirate radio station. Where that signal is coming from, no one seems to know."
