Pirate shortwave broadcasts tend to be on well-known frequencies. This allows listeners to quickly find a pirate station when it comes on the air, as they only have a relatively few number of fixed places to look. Some of the locations on the HF band that are in frequent use as of September 2007 include:
|15070||active in the early 1990's by Europirates and pirates in North America, but recently quiet due to the solar cycle low|
|7415||historically, an extremely active frequency, more recently occupied by WBCQ|
|6220||Used by Mystery Radio in Europe|
|6925||usually USB, but virtually all modes have been heard|
|6930||SSTV and USB|
|6950||infrequent, but used occasionally|
|6955||infrequent, but used occasionally|
6925 is the most used frequency at this time; however, it's important to note that the list will change. Broadcasters will experiment with new frequencies according to the season, and the appearance of utility, military, and broadcast stations on a favorite spot may also force stations to move to new locations.
A good place to look to get an idea of what frequencies are in current use is the FRN Loggings section, and some stations will also announce a broadcast ahead of time on the FRN PX Announcements section.
