Active Shortwave Pirates (North America) in July 2022
« on: August 04, 2022, 2324 UTC »
This is a list I have compiled based on loggings here on the HFU. It shows all the identified North American shortwave pirates heard in the month of July 2022. Note that many stations use multiple names so determining the amount of actual transmitters in use is impossible. Some stations are also active so infrequently that they may not have been logged in July but may broadcast in the future.
Stations are listed alphabetically and show the station name followed by the number of loggings in July 2022.

Thanks to CT Yankee for the comments and two additional stations. I didn’t include Bob Dylan Radio because it is not it’s own stations but a relay by TRI.

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using a Kenwood TS-570D with a 40 meter band Inverted V.
