Shortwave pirate radio broadcasts are some of the most original & entertaining programming one can hear. These stations bring the reality that radio can be spontaneous, creative & unrestrained along with a direct connection to the listener, even if they're across the ocean! These broadcasts were recorded using a Ten Tec RX-340 receiver and DX Engineering's 8 Circle Array using Audacity software through an M-Audio Delta 66 interface via the Ten Tec's DC-Coupled audio tap for SSB or...

The 2010s was a time of great ambivalence and disillusionment when it came to me and broadcast radio. Yeah, it's true. My love of radio sort of ended around 2008 or so, and about midway through the ensuing decade (by the time Iheartradio was taking form and becoming aggressive) my interest in local radio was dead. Although great technological advances were being made in broadcasting during this time, I didn't really care very much since we were watching local radio turning into something...

Shortwave pirate radio broadcasts are some of the most original & entertaining programming one can hear. These stations bring the reality that radio can be spontaneous, creative & unrestrained along with a direct connection to the listener, even if they're across the ocean! The recordings from the 90's were made with a Grundig Satellit 500/random longwire (94'-96') & a Drake R8A/50ft. sloper (96'-00') on both reel to reel & cassette. Unless noted, the rest of these (2000 &...

Sometimes when I tune around the shortwave spectrum I'll come across unusual sounds or broadcasts that either I can't identify or find elusive in nature.  These can range from being amusing/entertaining to just plain weird and have their own place here - Aeronautical, Clandestine, Digital/Data, Fisherman/Outbanders/Pescadores, Meteorological, Military, UNID_pirate & Unknown. Most of these broadcasts were recorded using a Ten Tec RX-340 receiver & DX Engineering's 4 Sq. system using...

Off-air recordings of various shortwave pirate radio broadcasts as heard from my home in Texas since 2007. Mostly North American free/pirate shortwave radio broadcasts, I do occasionally snag a European station when conditions are favorable. Most were recorded using a direct line-out connection from a Palstar R30C receiver to a computer, using a shielded audio patch cord fitted with simple ferrite chokes to control the hum/buzzing noise that sometimes occurs with direct connections between a...

Here you will find some interesting 'Off Air' clips of 'Offshore' Pirate Radio Stations of the 1960's. These stations broadcast from ships and old WW2 forts around the cost of the British Isles. The first of them was Radio Caroline, which started transmissions at Easter 1964, soon to be followed by a dozen or so more stations. All but Radio Caroline North and South, stopped broadcasting by the 14th August 1967, when the marine broadcasting offenses act came into force.

Judging by Peel's remarks, he has just returned to the ship after a period of shore leave. * This show is available in two versions: one on the 17-DVD Torrent, and the other as a remastered show from the blog My Old Tapes. * The author comments: "Inspired by the Final Perfumed Garden reconstruction,...

Continuing to archive off-air recordings of, primarily, U.S. based shortwave pirate radio shows as I heard them. I hope these off-air recordings will convey a sense of "being there" as these impromptu shows were happening.

Radio Scotland broadcasting on Monday 14th August 1967 with Tony Allan and Mark West (plus many of the ship's crew and staff contributing). This was their last broadcast and many (although not all, Radio Caroline being a notable exception) other pirate stations closed on this day.

Recorded via the University of Twente Enschede Web-SDR (http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/). I found it when checking if Radio Interpol were on 1611 kHz around 0445ish. They weren't, so I went to play around on shortwave for a short while. Returning to 1611, it appeared the Utopia broadcast commenced around 0510 GMT (0710 CEST) because I think I missed the first minute or so. Oh well.
