I have heared and logged several in the past on 6955khz. They hang out on weekends in the late evenings on 6850 up to 6970. I have received 5 or so QSL cards from them. They usually use a 3rd party mail drop for them to get their QSL mail. Some are rather interesting programs. Check out the magazine Monitoring Times, they have a monthly schedule there. Have fun and listen to thoes guys once in a while. 73. Jim

By "dx pirate radio stations" do mean the U.S. teeny boppers
"playing DJ" around 6955 USB on weekends, or HF radio stations
of underground political parties and/or revolutionaries in
third world countries?

This is where your Google search might have gotten crossed up.
A lot of serious SWL's follow the latter stations and
try to ID/QSL them. As to the former, well, the so-called "ops" make
rants about "free speech" and "free radio" but mostly what they do is
smoke dope and drink beer and play old records. (Using "opened up"
ham gear as transmitters.) They're idiots.
Imagine the HF SSB version of "Wayne's World".
And yes, the FCC does occasionally bust one, or they used to.
You can find more about them here:

A waste of prefectly good radio time time listening
to them  in my opinion, but whatever......

<smile> You can always try to listen to 1431 KHz. We have an eHam member who is involved with a pirate station out of Greece. Maybe once he figures out his 500 watt amplifier working you can hear him from the states when conditions are right.

I spent several years in the 80's trying to listen in on SW pirate stations but found the MW/BCB band pirates were more fun (funner?). Sometimes you hear them on the FM dial as well, since I drive so much I always give the bands a few sweeps from the car.

You sometimes hear the lunatic fringe broadcasters who decry that the federal government is a fabrication, therefore laws do not apply to them. I tire of listening to their tirades and go back to listening to amateur stations.

Oh yeah, those guys are classic. My fav's are the ones who argue
that the IRS doesn't have the right to collect income taxes.
These guys usually end up in uniform....a prison uniform!

The sad part is, some of them have their spiel down SO slick and
SO convincing that they convince otherwise clear thinking, sensible people
and seniors, that it really IS true....And those poor folks end up in
serious trouble with the IRS.

I occasionally pick them up out of north Texas. It is not unusual to hear a spiel about race wars and the upcoming revolution from the same folks.

We can only hope that hate-mongers will someday devour themselves. If they want to broadcast that tripe they should fire up a CB radio where it seems that the FCC does not really care what happens in the 11 meter band.

Pushing anything across the MW BCB or FM commercial bands will incur the wrath of the FCC really quickly as there is money on the line. Sometimes we need to put up with that "stuff" in our band-space either by hams who have gone renegade or some nut who reads how to run your own shortwave broadcasting gig from home. If we can make the case for "harmful interference" to the FCC they are usually quick to respond (had to go that route for a paging transmitter that was wiping out around 5 MHz of the 150-174 MHz band).

And warnings about "black helicopters" being government surviellance.
Not to mention the highway signs "in code" that are actually route markers
for NATO ground forces secret planned invasion of the United States.

It's all true, ask Bubba, he knows!  Smiley

OMG, I hadn't heard about those before.   I keep an eye out when I'm traveling next week.  Smiley 

 Now I'm certain those "South of the Border" signs on I=95 are for invaders.  Do you think "Cracker Barrel" is too?

Aren't those for that miserable little place right on the NC/SC border? I drove past that place a few times and decided that at all costs, I would avoid that exit.

It looks like a sad place with pieces of amusement park equipment scattered about.
