Grasscutter and Al Fansome were big buddies. The Fansome Radio Network or FRN, is the way the friends of Fansome, TFOF, communicated then.

Sometimes I worry about Capt. Ron and his box, but Al being a CalTech engineer and a deity these days, I'm sure he's checked out and reserved for Ron the best refrigerator box in Purgatory when his time come's.

BTW, did you ever see the pics of the interior of Al's trailer before he headed south to Shady Acres? It was a sight to behold. Decorated with the finest shag carpeting and thrift store furniture upholstered in various plaid fabrics.

This was a relay by North American Pirate Relay Service. Email him at naprs@protonmail.com

I have never heard him give an ID or email on the air after the relay. I wonder if he wants a recorded ID? I could make one if he wants.

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.
