    WAIT FOR IT... I FIRST LISTEN TO A WEAK PIRATE STATION, THEN I TUNE TO THE VERY STRONG PIRATE STATION.

    I caught some strong-signal pirate radio, this evening (around 23:45 UTC, Easter Sunday, 04-April-2021 UTC). Here's a video capture.

    I enjoyed catching these two pirate radio (non-licensed, illegal) broadcasting just under 7 MHz (40 Meters), on Easter Sunday 2021. The second station had very strong signal into Ohio.

    The 2nd station is the CAPTAIN MORGAN pirate station.

    This is a good season for pirate radio, so get out your radios and big antenna systems...

    My antenna (used for this video capture) is an off-center-fed dipole up at 50 feet. 220 total feet of wire end to end. The feedline is 450-ohm ladder line, about 83 feet, which feeds into a 4:1 balun that then connects with a 50-ohm coax that runs it into the receiver. The receiver is the SDRplay RSPdx. 73 de NW7US dit dit ..



    Thanks for watching.
