Bogusman eQSL and Delta Radio photo



eQSL received from Bogusman - skip actually short enough to hear for a change.

Delta Radio Int sent some photos. He said the station has been around since the 1970s but has not been heard on shortwave for several years. He said he will produce a QSL for future broadcasts. I believe this is a separate Delta Radio from two other Delta radios on shortwave - one who also calls himself Technical Man and Delta Radio (West Brabant).

Many thanks.

Operator of Radio Caroline Int/Goofy passes away

Very sad news that  Paul, who operated Radio Caroline Int and Radio Goofy from the Czech/German border area has died.

He had cancer and in his last message on the AM Forum in February he said he was seriously ill and the cancer had spread.

Now Sluwe Vos Radio has been informed that he passed away on April 26, 2018.

http://www.am-forum.nl/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=26560

He was frequently heard on 48 metres with programmes of music and jingles and also a regular in Iann's pirate chat. He always thanked me for logging his station.

He was devoted to his dog Goofy. His blog- https://carolineteam.jimdo.com - featured not only his free radio logs but also photos from his travels and many photos of Goofy!

Condolences can be left on the AM Forum site (link above).

Thanks for the shows. May you rest in peace, Paul.

eQSL from Greek pirate Zeppelin Radio


My tentative reception of Zeppelin Radio on Monday has been rewarded with an eQSL from the station. In an email the operator said he uses a homebrew 110W transmitter with 47m longwire antenna. Although Greek pirates are regularly heard mixing with the Dutch at the top of medium wave, not so many are heard on shortwave.

This is only my third shortwave Greek pirate - the others were Odyssey Radio and Spider Radio, around 10 years ago. Many thanks for this eQSL.

It has been an incredibly quiet Sunday on 48 metres as operators don't bother switching on due to on-going bad propagation. If you haven't seen it, Terry's blog explains what's going on: http://terrysradioblog.blogspot.co.uk/ 

Let's hope conditions improve. A lot of the Dutch seem to concentrating on the top end of medium wave. Last night was busy on MW and I was getting many good signals - even on a small portable in the west of England.

Irish pirate radio history

This month's Wireless on Flirt FM features aspects of the history of the Irish pirate radio era of the 1970s and 1980s.

2018 is the 30th anniversary of the closure of the pirates in anticipation of new broadcasting legislation.

The programme features an interview with Irish radio historian Eddie Bohan on a new exhibition on the pirates to open in Dublin in May, and an interview with veteran broadcaster David Baker who worked in various Dublin stations in the 1980s and went on to radio in the UK.

Global HF pirate weekend

Next Global HF Weekend: March 30, 31, and April 1, 2018
Andrew Yoder writes:
"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.

"The last one, which occurred during the first weekend of November 2017, was very successful. A handful of North American stations were reported on Europe and vice versa. And South American stations were heard in the North. 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 GHFW. 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.

March 30, 31, & April 1, 2018
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/).

Message from Radio Mi Amigo International

"You may be aware that our leader Captain Kord is seriously ill in hospital. As we wait for the news that he is well enough to continue the great work he has started with the radio station, we have organised ourselves into an interim Management Team to keep his dream alive.

The team has been appointed with one aim … to keep Radio Mi Amigo International “bringing back the golden era of AM offshore radio”. Whilst some parts of the operation are temporarily proving difficult to maintain to Kord’s high standard, we’ll get there …

One of our first priorities is to sort out the problems with our website, RadioMiAmigoInternational.com. Wrapped up with that problem is a backlog of orders from our webshop and our e-mail system not working.

Of course the website problem has made listening difficult for online listeners. We are working on it. Our short wave transmissions are unaffected and continue as normal. If you’d like to listen digitally,
you can still do this. The easiest way is to simply type: miamigointer.radio.net into your web browser and then press the play button.

So, thank you for your understanding. And thank you for your support.

Together, we will keep Captain Kord’s dream alive.

Together, we will keep Radio Mi Amigo International on the air."

A chance to remember Tom Taylor

Mark Stafford writes:

"TOM TAYLOR / BARRY STEPHENS

A couple of us radio guys were just discussing Tom and we had a thought.

Sometimes people’s families do not always realise exact why they put so much effort into this crazy radio life! In Tom’s case he (and EMR) were heard all over the world, but not necessarily by people close to him as he was on Short Wave and not FM.

Sometimes that leads to a situation where the family might just feel that someone’s efforts were not that well supported.

But, we all know better when it comes to Tom. He was a Pirate Radio Legend, both as someone who was the man who held together probably the best European Short Wave pirate station we have ever heard. On top of that, he was just a genuine nice guy who would (and did) do anything he could to help other radio people out with advice and direct technical help when things went wrong.

So, if you ever listened to European Music Radio or knew Barry, can I ask you a big favour?

Can you just take a few minutes to remember him by sending a Condolence or Sympathy Card to the Crematorium where Barry’s service will be held? These will then be forwarded on to his family.

The address to use is:-

Tom Taylor Service
12.15 Monday - 12th February 2018
West Wiltshire Crematorium,
Devizes Road,
Semington,
Trowbridge.
BA14 6HL

Please address the card EXACTLY like that to ensure delivery.

The vast majority of Tom’s friends lived in the London area and with Trowbridge being a very long distance away, very many may not be able to attend. So, the cards will have an even more important place in the remembrance of Tom."
