Active Shortwave Pirates (North America) December 2022
« on: January 02, 2023, 0626 UTC »
This is a list I have compiled based on loggings here on the HFU. It shows all the North American shortwave and mediumwave (AM) pirates heard in the month of December 2022. Note that many stations use multiple names so determining the number of actual transmitters in use is impossible. Some stations are also active so infrequently that they may not have been logged this month but may broadcast in the future. Stations are listed alphabetically and show the station name followed by the number of loggings in December 2022. The most active station (other than UNID with 101) was B Side Radio with 16 broadcasts. There was a total of 292 broadcasts this month.

 8) Thanks for the list. Its for me a composer or author listening when I'm producing. The truth if I may be frank, anybody could get busted for SW pirate, but will NOT, because in US FCC no longer makes troubles unless they are paid to investigate. They've moved on to a new level. SW isn't FM or AM commerical. And of those who do partake, we acknowledge the risks, ass in air so to speak and freedom fight the powers that be. Thanks for your listings, some I've heard and many not.

Your little late with that observation, Stumpy. That's been known for years. Thanks for the input, though.
