Global Pirate HF-Weekend 14-15.1.2012

I'd like to remind all pirate stations and listeners around the world that next HF-Weekend will be 14-15.1.2012 !
- - - - Pirates - Sign in during the week !!! - - - -

That would be a test-weekend for pirates from all over the world to broadcast on High Frequencies 10 - 28 MHz (mostly on 15-22 MHz) !! Still much time for preparing things.
New station from BULGARIA just joint to broadcast: Free Radio Bulgaria (F.R.B. Service) will be on the air on 21.490 MHz with 100 W. More info later!

So, I hope also pirate stations from USA and Canada will join this weekend trying to reach Europe and also Asia/Oceania !!
I think that the stations should prefere frequencies between 21.450 - 21.550 MHz and 15.000 - 15.100 MHz, but of course anything goes.

There seems to have been visitors to my blog from all over the world. So, let's hope that we will have new listeners from South America and Asia etc. Big antennas and receivers NOT needed for very long skips.

SCHEDULE for Saturday 14.1 and Sunday 15.1.2012

1) European MORNING 08.00 - 12.00 UTC from Europe to Asia/Japan/Oceania.

2) European AFTERNOON
12.00 - 16.00 utc from Europe to North America and vice versa.

3) European NIGHT 22.00 - 24.00 UTC from North America to Asia/Oceania. NEW!

I have several new stations participating this coming weekend, so, it will be very interesting.
The conditions has came down a little bitduring past weeks. You can see radio-amateurs real-time-QSO's on 28 MHz (10 mb) here:

FOR PIRATES: If you want to join already, put me e-mail:

Small Serbian pirate station, Radar Serbia Radio, will have test broadcast to Europe on Saturday 17th December 2011! Station will be on the air from 20.00 - 23.00 UTC !! Frequency is very exceptional: 2023 kHz!! The power is only 40 Watts AM. Music will be rock.
Real challenge to hear !

Radar Serbia Radio is planning to start on 48 mb !!! Then it would be the first international SW-station from Serbia (Radar is also using frequencies between 1600 - 1800 kHz, but not often because that band is overcrowded in SE Europe)!

Here is youtube-video of this station brodcasting techno on 2023 kHz!
E-mail to the station: radarserbiaradio@gmail.com

Below here is a photo of station's first 40 W-transmitter. There is a bigger under construction! It is mosfet-transmitter which is very exceptional (used also by Radio Texas in Serbia with bigger power). Click:
