Looks good on the waterfall. I will check out the whole show on the SDR recording later and update, but thought I'd mention that it's coming in well here.

0434 switched over to a nice signal. Will log things on the playback but enjoying the show for now!
0515 off
0517 back on with an SSTV


0520 SSTV


0522 off (for now or for the night, too soon to tell)

good signal and sound quality of 3Khz with the occasional "peskie" whistling and yelling (i guess they dont appreciate good music lol)
enjoying the weekend nightly tunes with David Bowie "Space Oddity"
hats off and thanks for keeping the hobby alive :)
0445z - ELO - Telephone Line (great song)
0449z - sounds like another ELO song (not using shazam), ELO reminds me of of movie "Xanadu"
0454z - interesting song, never hear it before, sounds like its from the '50's
0456z - "and the sign you've got to have a membership card to get inside..." classic song
0515z - off mid song
0517z - SSTV (i got nothing to decode it, im pretty sure Chris will post the decode from his overnight recording if no one else does)
0520z - SSTV (we have leap-frogged into the year 20018 ! lol)

bet 2 dollars, no post.
Cuz he told me "What if we don't post anymore?"
Told him I don't give 2 craps.
No offense to him.
just be a unique and entertaining broadcaster, that is all you have to be if you want to capture the interest of people, even if youre not logged here or elsewhere, i can guarantee you that there is always more than one person that will be listening and the longer you broadcast, the better your odds of listeners.
even if all you can do is play music, try to play "different" and unique music, stuff people never heard, weird and unique stuff like mash-ups, remixes, extended versions, demos/outtakes, re-recordings, unreleased content, talented covers, etc. (have you heard the Metallica demos ?)
relaying the content from other pirates or other people is another excellent idea, ive relayed Radio Illuminati, Newport Pirate Radio, Radio Free Whatever, and many others.
shortwave radio hobbyists spend an enormous amount of money and time with their gear, the least we could do as pirates, is supply their gear with interesting and unique content other than the static and the religious fanatics that mostly comprise the shortwave radio spectrum of today.
i do listen to you even though i rarely post in the forums (id rather sit back an listen), though your style is uniquely fragmented, you are still a pirate and any pirate to me is a unique pirate and that to me is better than any commercially licensed station no matter how much they toot their horns about "free speech".
edit:
dont know why you keep deleting your posts, just trying to give you some ideas :)
