I've found in the VLF band several stations broadcasting in Spanish. I dont know if they are legal or not. When I make a multi turn loop ant I'll triangulate them and Knock on their door and see what happens. Smile OT.

Are you sure they aren't spurs from something else? Wouldn't make much sense to broadcast where nobody is listening Smile

Well, I dont know. They arent sub or multi freqs. However the sig strength meter reads very low. So the ant is distant or xmitter is QRP. I'll find them! Exclamation OT

Hi oppss made mistake.VLF there are broadcasters down there but as far as i know NO pirates.. I once did qsl a pirate on 1620 AM years ago. Ihave such a high noise level here below 400KC its hard to hear much of anything .During winter its a bit more quite. Ithink around 180kc are some cw beacons low power part 15 if i remember right.Check google on that.Sprman : )

I heard "The DX Pirate" they were talking about AM DX and played a few odd songs. They gave an e mail address for signal reports. I wrote a note to tell them I could hear then here at about S-8.
They sent me a pretty cool " E Mail QSL card."

Hi sprman,
Whats the status on that stretch below 7000? I heard once that it was going to be given to amateur radio and again that it was going to SWBC? Do you know?

Adios,
Bill

Have not heard anything of yet.60meter ham band does have some activity on it.Below 7mhz not heard a thing as of yet.Takes a good while for them to get around to doing anything.ITU meetings ect ect. Have to google and see what comes up.A side note FCC has not done anything on new 700mhz band plan yet.Google that and you see .Sprman : )

I heard one a few nights ago. It was just below 40 meters (6.9??) I should have written down the frequency because every year older I become, my memory looses a few Kb.
It was on USB and playing George Carlin and ID as "Really Ridiculous Radio." The male announcer spoke a bit about the evolution of comedy and proceeded to play old Abbott and Costello. The signal wasn't very good here with a lot of fading and was about 50-60% copy on my 160 meter dipole (run north and south) I could not receive them on my 225 ft. random wire (run east and west).
