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.

Define a pirate then please, if it isn't broadcasting something commercial that you don't have the rights too. There can't be political pirates? it is Stupor Tuesday after all.

Really tho, define a pirate please. I'm obviously brand new to this.

7200 LSB is a well known dumbass frequency where hams QRM each other and argue. Technically just as illegal as 69XX kHz pirates, but not considered the same by listeners. Really, why would we want to be associated with them? Pirates as discussed in North American Shortwave Pirate generally do not operate on ham bands (maybe with the occasional exception).

Any unauthorized broadcast intended for the general public is a pirate

But it's not for the general public, just for the other hams trying to use 7200.

Tuned in at 2204 utc on Brookfield WI sdr with fair S7-S9 signal, just hear hams yakking with each other, and now you know the rest of the story. (I never did like paul harvey aurant)
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

Amateur Radio - using a FM VHF radio repeater, the repeater owner owns the equipment - hence if there is a problem, the repeater owner can ban the user, report the offender to the ARRL and inform the FCC and ask for relief.
On the HF Bands no one owns any frequency - so as long as you don't talk about sexual acts or private personal body parts, it really is not against the law to talk, since the information on the frequency is not disseminated for use by the general public.
The FCC could spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to catch these people , but the fines are never paid or collected and lenient judges usually lets them off with not much more than a warning, so the 'fcc doesn't care one way or the other.

The Offenders are usually X cb radio people that at one time got a license but never had a use for it so they degraded to the point of where they returned to where they came from, just on a different frequency.  40 meters daytime probably gives you the biggest bang for the buck!

If you don't like what they are doing and you find their actions offensive, then go to their house, cut their coax, tear down their antenna and kick their ass..

Me personally, I just turn the big knob.  You Can't Fix Stupid!
