There has been an uptick in European MW pirate radio activity. Right now there is just one logging board for both  MW and SW pirates from Europe. Should we add a second board just for European MW pirates, and use the existing board just for European SW pirates?

The existing MW Free Radio is really meant for North American MW pirates, and the name would be changed to reflect that.  Ideally, any existing European MW loggings would be moved from both existing boards to the new board, although this could take some time to complete.

Does this mean you want to rename the MW Free Radio board and repurpose it into a board for European stations? If so, it makes much more sense to create a new board for the European MW stations and leave the MW Free Radio board as-is.

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using an SDRPlay RSP1A for SWL with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 40 feet. Kenwood TS-570D for ham use.

Not know what the Alfa Lima board is doing these day, a Euro-MW logger might not be a bad idea.  https://www.alfalima.net/
Recently, a co-worker quizzed me on, "What would happen if you were to apply reverse polarity to the Energizer Bunny?". Having no idea, I asked, "What would happen?". The answer is he'd keep coming and coming and coming...

Agreed, I am happy that it seems we are going to get one  :D The last time any MW pirates were logged on the Alfa Lima forum was in 2018.

We'll create a new board, and leave the existing board, renamed to make it specific for North American MW pirates.
