eQSLs from USA and Ireland


I was delighted to receive an eQSL from Channel Z Radio in the USA, after hearing him on the SW England SDR during the Global HF Weekend in early November. In his email he said Channel Z has been on the air since 2004 and has been heard in North America, across Europe plus Venezuela, Japan and New Zealand. He was using a Dave Martin (of WNKR) designed Commando transmitter.



Also today I received an eQSL from Radio Nova International, broadcasting from the east coast of Ireland. In his email Tony talked about his long interest in radio, the pirate scene in Ireland and his plan to broadcast on 75m. He also mentioned he was big fan of the original Radio Nova - hence the name.

Thanks for the great QSLs.

Shortwave pirates of the 1980s remembered

Some of you will have seen my Pirate Memories blog featuring audio clips and QSLs from many of
the shortwave pirates from the 1980s.

I have given it a bit of a revamp with a new template and also now embedded the audio clips into each post making it easier to click on and listen to the recordings.

Going through it, what struck me is just how many British and Irish shortwave stations there were in the 1980s, with names like Radio Gemini, Radio Apollo, Weekend Music Radio and West European Free Radio from the UK.

Of the 100 plus station recordings, the majority are from the UK and Ireland, plus clips from stations around Europe, including the Netherlands, Germany and Sweden.

In addition to the shortwave stations, there's also clips of some 1980s medium wave and FM stations from the London area, like Thameside Radio, Radio Floss and a clip of Radio Jackie broadcasting during a raid!

So sit back and enjoy the memories!

Bogusman goes live

Hear the Bogusman live and liberated from the limitations of recording!

From now until some time well into 2018, Bogus will turn back time to the olden days, when he & the Ghoul would entertain, amuse and bemuse from a humble studio 'somewhere in England'.

There's nothing like broadcasting live, or hearing live radio!  Don't miss this rare opportunity!
Make 6450kHz part of your regular Free Radio scan.

Keep checking Bogusman's usual haunts, too!

Hopefully conditions will be better than last Sunday when he was on but I could hear nothing on the South West England SDR.

Flashback Music Radio eQSL


Flashback Music Radio sent me this great eQSL after logging the station on 41 metres on Sunday. Many thanks! 

EMR off air for the forseeable future

Dear EMR Listeners,

Due to my cancer condition (non-Hodgkin Lymphoma) that was diagnosed in February 2017, I regret to tell you that EMR will be off air until further notice.

I hope to return EMR to the air at some point in 2018.

All the best from Tom Taylor

PS. More pages to our website will be added over the next few months while EMR is off air !

European Music Radio:
website: www.europeanmusicradio.com
email: emrshortwave@gmail.com
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EMR was one of first pirate stations I listened to when I first began shortwave listening. In 2002 the station switched to legal relays but remained a "free radio" station at heart. All the best Tom, I hope to hear EMR on the air again soon. Visit their website to find out more about the station.

Landbased pirate radio 1968-82

I came across this website after Mike Barraclough posted a link on Facebook and it might interest anyone who listened to the pirates on medium wave and shortwave in the 1970s.

It has been put together by the former operator of Skyport Radio and particularly focuses on stations which operated in the London area during that time.

Among stations featured are Radio Jackie, Radio Concord, Skyport Radio and Swinging Radio England (1974-77), but many more are mentioned.

In additions there's photos, stickers and posters, plus copies of articles from Time Out, Free Radio Magazine and Free Radio Focus from that time.

If you're interested in free radio from that period then it is certainly worth checking out this website at https://sites.google.com/view/gunfleet/home

On the subject of radio nostalgia, I'll mention my other blog, Pirate Memories, which has many audio clips from shortwave, medium wave and FM stations from the 1980s, plus QSLs.

Its address is https://piratememories.blogspot.co.uk

Jack of Radio Morning Star dies at 71


I have just come back from a few days away to read of the sad news of the death of Jack Donio, the operator of Radio Morning Star. He was an enthusiastic radio operator, who transmitted low power broadcasts on shortwave and medium wave. His first transmission was way back in 1958! He also broadcast his programmes online.

May you rest in peace, Jack.

Next Global HF Pirate Weekend: November 3-5

Andrew Yoder writes:

"It's still a couple weeks away, so be sure to mark the next Global HF Pirate Weekend on your calendar.

The idea behind the Global HF Weekends are to promote friendship through radio around the world. The hope is that listeners will be able to hear different stations and for broadcasters to reach distant locations. Anyone may participate. I've already heard from a few stations who plan to broadcast and I've been in contact with a number of listeners.

The last one, which occurred during the first weekend of April, resulted in some success with intercontinental broadcasting.

Four North American pirates all operated around 0600 UTC between 6920 and 6950 kHz and were heard in New Zealand.
A South American station ran 24/7 tests on 6930 kHz across Global HF Weekend and was reported in Germany, Maryland and Pennsylvania, and South America with only 10 watts.
One Dutch station was logged in Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Michigan, Kentucky, New York, Maryland, and Virginia.
Other stations were active specifically for the weekend, but just for a local or regional audience.

We'll see how many stations show up during the next weekend. It seems unlikely that stations will be using 13 meters this time and much more likely that stations will be trying the 6900-kHz range and possibly 31 and 25 meters.

November 3-5, 2017
Maybe 15010-15090 kHz, probably 6200-6400 kHz and 6800-6990 kHz

Of course, these were general frequency ranges used by pirates during prior Global HF Pirate weekends. Some stations will surely operate on frequencies and times outside of these ranges. In fact, the way conditions have been lately, frequencies at or below 15 MHz seem like they will be more effective for intercontinental broadcasting.

These will be updated on the Hobby Broadcasting (http://hobbybroadcasting.blogspot.com) blog as it happens and also check the loggings on HF Underground (https://www.hfunderground.com)."

Laser Soul Hits

Hi this is a message I am sending out to all my friends and contacts into free radio, writes Gary Drew.

I would like to invite you to listen to Laser Soul Hits broadcasting on the internet 24 hours a day and
on 87.8 FM on very low power to a small part of the eastern home counties.

Let me make it clear from the start that Laser Soul Hits is not in competition with Laser Hot Hits, it is a sister station to LHH in the same way as Laser Dance Hits (also known as laser hot hits dance). All our stations support each other in our own special way.

Laser Soul Hits was set up by me as a hobby station to share some of the music I enjoy and to rebroadcast archive material I have collected over many years and have lovingly restored with enhanced audio quality to share once again on LSH as a 'tribute to radio'.

When I do shows for LHH they will sometimes be live with LSH at the same time and sometimes I will more specialised  live shows soley for LSH only. All my shows from LHH past and present will be repeated on rotation on LSH and the playout system is changed regularly once per week.

Here's the format for Laser Soul Hits.
6am - midnight (approx) everyday on rotation - ultimately Soul, funk, rare groove music with a tiny splash of reggae and dance. Gary Shows shows past and present on repeat but sometimes live in sync with Laser Hot Hits and original 80's landbased soul pirate radio station shows lovingly restored for repeat all these years later. Plus other new shows and sponsored daytime shows.

Midnight - 6am every night - offshore and pirate radio documentaries, original restored shows from offshore radio, sponsored radio related programmes. A hint of jazz, other radio enthusiastic type material for the SWL and DXer.

Dutch shortwave station raided

Reports of problems of radio, TV and broadband interference in Limburg led to an investigation by Agentschap Telecom. They said some people complained of not being able to use their phones, internet or TVs daily because of interference.

AT say it was because of illegal broadcasts in the 6MHz band. They also say they have had complaints from a foreign government about 6MHz interference.

After an investigation AT traced the signal to a house which they believe was causing the interference and seized the equipment.

The report doesn't say what the name of station raided was.

This was based on a Google translation from the original report in Dutch.
