  1. That station on 7143kHz is probably Radio Kavkaz, the Chechnya pirate station.

  2. Hi Bill,

    The feed for 111 hasn't shown up in my iTunes yet. Am I the only one?

  3. OK, so I did the equivalent of a reboot. I unsubscribed and subscribed again, now it shows up.

  4. Have just finished reading "Contra Cross" Bill. This Leftist found it very interesting. Am looking forward to the Solder Smoke book. Great pictures of those islands in la Bella Italia, by the way...

  5. Comments on the comments: Jeff: The station I heard on 40 was transmitting 5 letter groups in CW. That's would be one weird pirate.
    Mark: The rss feed for 110 and 111 was a bit messed up. I think I fixed it.
    Roberto: Glad you liked Contra Cross, but SolderSmoke (the book) is a lot more fun.

    73 to all
