I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

That is THE best kind of radio mystery, something I could only dream about. It's like a sc-ifi story where people find a radio station abandoned 50 years ago and turn it on, and it's playing tapes of the personalities from back then.

There is a station that broadcasts on one day a year, official broadcast, not pirate!

That's Radio Öömrang. They broadcast every February 21st for one hour starting at 1600 UTC on 15215 kHz. The broadcast is in German, English and Frisian.

The signal to the U.S. (at least upper Midwest where I am) is solid, S9+20.
