Old Time Radio pirate 6770 kHz AM 6.770 MHz AM

Old Time Radio or OTR is a pirate radio station that broadcasts extremely frequently. It is unknown who operates the station, where they are transmitting from or what power level they are transmitting. Broadcasts include no ID or any other identifying information but consist of old time radio shows played with a very long playlist, often including the original commercials. The name "Old Time Radio" has been assigned by the pirate radio/SWL listening community.

They are most often heard on the frequency of 6770 kHz in AM mode. It is presumed they run low power and the fact that they've been transmitting nearly non-stop for several years indicates a likely remote transmitting location. They are often heard on the East Coast of the United States but have been logged on the West Coast and elsewhere.

Old Time Radio uses other frequencies in addition to 6770 kHz AM. They were recently (late February 2019) logged on 3390 kHz AM in the 90 meter band.

In terms of time on the air and number of loggings, Old Time Radio is by far the most active shortwave pirate station.
