"Long Live Radio" Eastern European shortwave pirate radio 6290 khz (via SDR) eQSL

I just received this fantastic eQSL from Long Live Radio!  I tuned in to their broadcast on 6290 khz (via SDR at Twente), transmitting from Eastern Europe. 

The email gives a brief history of the staion:

Our radio station was born as experimental project in 2011. The first test transmission was realized on first half of September 2011 on a frequency of 52 meter band and consisted of some looped music.

The same transmitting system was used then as we have now: master oscillator, power amplifier and modulator, all are home-made, built of old vacuum tubes, PC and primitive endfeed long wire as an aerial. Our QTH is high secret location in one of the countries of ex-USSR (Eastern Europe). The output power (carrier) is usually 30-50 W.

In December 2012 we have moved to more popular 48 meter band. At present time we are broadcasting occasionally on frequencies between 6200 and 6400 kHz with amplitude modulation, however some tests on other frequencies are possible too.

Since start of our mission we receive many reception reports from 20 countries of Europe, Asia and North America. About 95% of reports were confirmed by eQSLs. Today LLR mainly focuses on various hard and alternative music from whole world.

Thanks Long Live Radio!
