Here we play radio: shortwave, mediumwave, longwave, amateur/ham radio, pirate radio, utilities, digital modes, scanning and more. We share radio reviews, broadcasting news and anything we radio geeks enjoy. Welcome to the SWLing Post community!
Last night–Christmas Eve–I recorded a few minutes of pirate radio station, Wolverine Radio on 6,925 kHz USB. Their signal was very strong here into the shack. Wolverine played a selection of several rockin’ Christmas songs.
Start your search for pirate radio stations in the watering hole at 6,925 kHz and tune up to 7,000 kHz.
As I sit here in front of my radios this Friday evening, I notice the news on National Geographic that we have one of the largest sun spots to face us since 2005. This sunspot is the size of Jupiter! It’s all a little too coincidental on 11-11-11.
It can only mean one thing…
Turn on your radio and tune in some pirates!
For those of you new to pirate radio, most–but not all–activity can be found between 6,925 – 7,000 kHz (i.e. just below the 40 meter ham radio band). Pirates are not professional broadcasters, thus work a day job during the week. That’s why you’re most likely to hear pirates Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.
