From the Blogosphere:



‭ Pirate Shortwave

Andrew Yoder mentions that he received an e-mail back from Graham Barclay of KIWI Radio for a follow up for Andys upcoming 2012 Pirate Radio Annual. KIWI Radio was *really* excited about a relay of KIWI that occurred last year and asked Andy to send word around that he would like to have his programs relayed in North America again. KIWI was an AM/FM/SW pirate from New Zealand that was relayed here in the '80s & '90s. For those of you who weren't listening in the mid-'90s, he later got an SSB transmitter & was regularly audible across Europe and North America, relaying dozens of pirates. KIWI was probably heard by more people than any other SW pirate of the past 25 years. Very cool to see that he's alive & well (and still interested). His e-mail is kiwiradio /at/

Pat Murphy  posts that "A giant sunspot that is at least six times the diameter of Earth has formed on the Sun in less than 48 hours, Nasa has announced."

HF Underground

hsmith61  Has anyone used this software- Tunatic music identification software  DimBulb notes that he used Tunatic for a while but later switched to Shazam which is better at ID'ing tunes buried in noise - it also seems to have a more extensive database.  If you already have your radio's audio connected to a line input on your sound card give it a try.

Echo_One  was wondering if anybody would relay a show of his for me in the NAM region. Not having my own equipment means that i have to ask. I'm willing to pay a small charge like WBCQ does, but their prices are a little too much for me atm.

From The SWLing Post  Thomas Witherspoon listening in western North Carolina with his delta loop fed WinRadio Excalibur caught Wolverine Radio February 17, 2013 around 2:40 UTC. Wolverine was broadcasting on 6.925 MHz in the upper side band. Typical of Wolverine, lots of music variety which spans the decades, and no commentary other than station ID throughout.
