Hope Radio International
Hope Radio International was a pirate operating in the early 1990's, and was legendary for it's massive AM signal heard worldwide by DXers, as well as a slick homegrown sketch comedy and music format. It is likely that Hope Radio was running several thousand watts of power, and frequently broadcast for long stretches of time near 7415 KHz. It was eventually busted in upstate New York. The amateur radio operator who owned the station lost his ham license after a bitter fight with the FCC. He was eventually allowed to relicense several years later as KF2VM and can often be heard today in the AM window (operating legally).
