“Almost Live‭” ‬Sweep

Opening Monologue

The film stars John Cusack as a disaffected CIA agent who is given one last chance to prove himself.

He is given the task of protecting Katherine (Malin Akerman), the operator of a top secret 'Numbers Station' that broadcasts encrypted messages to operatives.

When the station is compromised, the pair must work together to prevent a global disaster.

Kasper Barfoed has directed the film from the script by F Scott Frazier.

The Numbers Station is scheduled for release in the US on April 26. A UK release date is yet to be confirmed.

‭ Pirate Shortwave

‭Pat Murphy


Pat Murphy posted this last week and I forgot to mention it. Its a website where you can enter your address and see what frequencies are open to set a 100-watt FM in, for your community. Very nicely done:   he also supplied another site "Community Broadcasters Association" that has a lot of good links and information:

 phlegm  notes that The National Federation of Community Broadcasters have been around for a few decades now...they kind of act as a "representative" body/facilitator for full-power community radio stations around the country. They have an annual Community Radio Conference, which is in San Francisco this year.


HF Underground


rwfisheriv-         Raspberry Pi, antennas, and SDR                                                                         So now that you can pretty much have a complete computer for $35 or so, and add on a SDR for another $15....thoughts on how this might be fun?  Since you could have a $50 receiver right at your antenna, would it be easier to build arrays since you wouldn't have to worry about losses in the feed (just about running the ethernet cables between the boxes...)?

Wolverine Radio ,  tom said-was the strongest of the pirate radio stations I heard last night.

Wolverine was broadcasting on 6.935 MHz in the upper side band. Very good signal and excellent fidelity for SSB. Typical of Wolverine, lots of music variety and no commentary other than station ID throughout.

Wolverine Radio–at least each time I’ve heard them–sends an SSTV image at the end of the broadcast. Last night was no exception, though I had a difficult time decoding, and no time to tinker. If you can decode, please forward the image, mode you used and I’ll post it!

‭Other Radio News:

Listening to AWW the other week and Joe from California called in, I’ve actually heard him call in a few times, and those who listen closely recognise this is actually Joe Walsh who I knew was a ham and radio enthusiast, didn't know he was a fan of WBCQ. And who knows? he may even be a fan of Pirate Radio. That wouldn't be a stretch if hes a BCQ fan. No, I’m not even going to speculate what other show he may listen too. LOL not going to even contemplate that.

 ButI bring up Joe walsh because I want to talk about another rock n roller with a passion for radio. That would be David Lee Roth
