"shortwave ghost" - pirate radio is alive and well :D

for the second time in one week i picked up a pirate radio station.  last night it was "shortwave ghost" broadcasting on 6920 kHz - playing mostly classic rock tunes.  earlier this week, on memorial day, i tuned into "radio free whatever" on 6950, upper side band!

i posted reports on hfu - high frequency underground and also sent emails to the stations themselves.  "radio free whatever" replied with an email the next day, but didn't send an eQSL.  shortwave ghost replied to my email an hour later - the fastest turn around time i've ever encountered!  they sent the above eQSL - pretty neat :D

while international broadcasters are drifting away from shortwave, pirate radio is flourishing!
