Latest catches

It's been a little while since I posted some logs, so let's bring things up to date with the Dutch MW pirates I've been listening to here in England. As usual, all times are in UTC, and the equipment at this side is a Wellbrook ALA1530LN-1 antenna with a Kenwood R5000 receiver.

1660       2307       Monte Carlo 44444 qsoing

Observations

  • The majority of tonight's stations were busy qsoing, except for Saturday night regulars Moby Dick and Keizer en Keizerin. Also reappearing with a decent signal and powerful modulation was a relay of Spectrum FM, although there was some mixing with Jeneverstoker, who was busy just 1 kHz away on 1621. Spectrum is a streaming station, but several people involved have a pirate history on MW. It's not clear who is responsible for the AM relay, although it is thought to be broadcasting from the Veluwe district. You can read more about the station here

Observations

  • There were three pirates on 1671 tonight. Broadcasting from the studio of Batavier, also on the microphone were Friesland MW pirates Melkbus and Golfbreker. Also good to hear joint broadcasts like this
  • On an evening when conditions were volatile with signals suddenly coming right up to almost local quality and then back down again, Twentana, Curacau and Marskramer were all very strong at some points during their broadcasts
