=+=+=+=+= North American Stations/Relays =+=+=+=+=

dence, RI 02908. (Hassig-IL) [Obsolete drop]


10/27, 2327, 6935/U; pirate music at S9+25; 2318 synthyl with

``Good evening, you are listening to Clever Name Radio...``. Off before next check at

2355. [nothing from S American pirates this hour on 6973,

6925 or 5825] (Glenn Hauser, OK)

10/28, 2225, 6935/U; rap music at S9+5; 2335 more than an hour

later still going, now S9+30 phone interview with someone

throwing out MF-bombs & other profanity until chopped off

the air at 2336*. When the FCC got `em? Not bloody likely.

As expected, the very active Clever Name Radio as per

multiple logs:

index.php/topic,38301.15.html (Glenn Hauser, OK)

10/31, 2336, 6950/U; pirate music w/heavy pulsing beat; S9+15.

YL inserts comment about Facebook; 2340 she says some-

thing about weapons restrixions, as I find the music

sounds better when tuned to 6950.12-USB; 2345 she says,

``Happy -u-k-n Hallowe`en, from Clever Name Radio``.

Many more logs here:

board/index.php/topic,38415.0.html Seems it started

Male Announcer with some kind of "Credit Card" Ad ??

@2332. Severe Fading and Dead Air @2333. Not heard

after 2333. ROSS, ON

[What do want to bet that Crazy Radio & Creepy Radio

are the same?]


10/28, 2225, 6955/AM; JBA carrier from presumed pirate. These

logs say it was Doctor Detroit: https://www.,38302.0.html

(Glenn Hauser, OK)

11/3, 2156-2207+, 6955/AM; Rock tunes & ID @2205. SIO=353- till

about 2200 then started diving into the QRN (Frodge-MI)


11/3, 2223-2229:57*, 6930/U; Rock tunes; code ID before s/off;

tinny audio. ID per HFU post (Frodge-MI)


11/1, 0018, 4065/U; fair sig good audio, urban jazz, then Dick

Weed gave fake Halloween name as a black person then

ID'd as himself & played Russian nat’l anthem then the

usual RFW programming. (Hassig-IL)

11/1, 0044, 4065/U; "Smoke another cigarette and pour yourself

another shot of vodka. This is Radio free Whatever."

s9 steady. (Will-MD)

11/1, 0118, 4065/U; pirate music; sounds better at 4064.989, DJ

sounds like Dick Weed, conversing with someone, so must

be Radio Free What-Ever; 0130 more talk, mentioning

having listened to Wolverine, but conditions bad on 6.9

MHz band so moved down here; 0148 still going. I find

this in normal bandscanning, when there is no activity

on 6.9 band & would alert others to this seldom-active

pirate frequency, but HFUs were already reporting it

from all over North America: https://www.hfunderground.

com/board/index.php/topic,38418.0.html None of them

mention QRM from beacon NZ or ZN. (Glenn Hauser, OK)


10/31, 0605, 1710; can make out the screaming service from

Radio Retén lo que Tienes, the pirate from Bâton Rouge

LA which is in no hurry to get busted. Also conside-

rable 1710 carrier, presumably this, circa 0200 UT

Nov 1. It was first being reported locally on FM back

in March also claiming to be on 1710 then, but only in

last month is being DXed, so must have beefed up their

MW output (Glenn Hauser, OK)


10/28, 2223-2237+, 6875/U; Rock music to James Brownyard ID

“WHYP & WHYP-FM” @2234+. SIO=454 at tune-in but dropped

drastically to 353 at 2236 after ID & rapidly into the

QRN. (Frodge-MI)

10/28, 2331, 6875/U; interviewing Al-someone on phone about

Hallowe`en, mentions R. Metallica Worldwide, but probably

not an ID of this one. 2334 ``Monster Mash``. 2337 WHYP

ID about to close, 2340 contact info with fake South-

Asian accent making it hard to copy; buzzing-bees SFX

by human voices? Inviting Al Fansome on the phone to do

the s/off for the WHYP Hallowe`en show, until 2341:30*

(Glenn Hauser, OK)


10/31, 2325, 6935.05/U; SIO-333, Halloween sounds, howling, song

Yes I'm the Devil, train sounds, Wolverine Radio ID @2337,

more devil songs, another ID at 2355. (Racenis, MI)

10/31, 2337, 6935/U; pirate music at S9+25. Finally at 2354,

``Wolverine Radio`` ID. Many2 more logs here & SSTV images

on a HW theme:

index.php/topic,38406.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK)

10/31, 2339, 6935/U; good sig & audio at first but faded slowly

over time, songs The devil is mad at me & The devil queen.



10/28, 2342, 6780/AM; JBA carrier, perhaps pirate, a bit less JBA

than 6770, but with less modulation on 6780. When I quit at

0021 Oct 29, 6780 is still on, but no big USB pirates have

been audible since 2341:30* when 6875 went off. The Hallo-

we`en festival could continue for three more nights if not

right now. No reports of 6780 at HFU (Glenn Hauser, OK)

10/28, 2344, 6925.1/AM; JBA carrier, perhaps pirate. This evening,

HFU has unIDs on 6925-USB & LSB, but no 6925-AM since much

earlier in day, Ion Radio at 1526-1549 (Glenn Hauser, OK)

10/31-11/1, 2355-0040, 6924.3/AM; Halloween sounds, fading in &

out, no ID heard, gave up at 0040 [11/1]. (Racenis, MI)

11/1, 2336, 6960; JBA carrier; also one at 2337 on 4065, as I am

hunting for pirates. Anything reported there? Not today,

but yesterday on 6960:

board/index.php/topic,38403.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK)

=+=+=+=+= Letter Beacons =+=+=+=+=

11/1, 0120, 4066 approx.; while monitoring Radio Free Whatever

pirate on 4065-USB at 0120 UT Nov 1, I`m barely hearing a

CW ID over and over as ZN --- or is it NZ? Pauses between

are so similar I can`t decide which one comes second.

Might have been out of RFW transmitter itself. Music from

RFW just about blots it out, but much more audible while

Dick Weed is talking, and definite copy at 0130. RFW is

off by 0159, but so is the beacon. It ought to be in this


High_Frequency_Beacon where there are several others

around this frequency, but it`s not. Any ideas? I fre-

quently check this area for beacons but nothing heard

for months. Searching my archive on NZ would be over-

productive, but ZN? I was getting ZN last February on

a nearby frequency: ``UNIDENTIFIED. 4070.34, Feb 7 at

0257, JBA CW beacon sending ZN over and over slowly.

Previously logged Feb 4 at 0448 as on 4070.36; maybe

my estimates are varying rather than the transmission.

So where is it? UNIDENTIFIED. 4070.396, Feb 9 at 0656,

beacon ZN is in again, sending ID about 15x per minute,

and peaking CW at S8`` Never found out where it is.

(Glenn Hauser, OK)

11/1, 1243, 4103 approx.; hunting for beacons I find JBA CW

here; on verge it keeps fading in & out so during next

10 minutes I cannot copy a certain ID. The last letter

in each sequence is W, but I hear a variety of other

characters, including P, B, 4 & 8, I think. Maybe it`s

a longer message rather than an ID repeating. This time

we have a good clue at

wiki/High_Frequency_Beacon ``4102.3, W..., s.e. Cali-

fornia desert, The WIND BEACON - sends 'W' ident &

series of dits - each dit correlating to a turn of its

anenometer [sic], so if it is windy in the, [sic] it

sends lots of dits; & no wind, no dits. April 6, 2013``

(Glenn Hauser, OK)

11/3, 0641, 4102.85 approx.; the `W` beacon is again JBA,

between various blips of other numbers or letters;

still audible when I reawaken too soon at 1217, a

little stronger than last time so I can get closer to

the exact frequency. The Wind Beacon from the southeast

California desert (Glenn Hauser, OK)
