    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

basic data and pirate info

Like Prime Number mentioned, HF Underground is a good forum for finding information on pirates.

A lot of pirate radio fans hang out there.

Most of the pirates I've heard seem to hang out on one or two frequencies just below the 40 meter ham band, in the 6900 khz part of the SW spectrum.

Some pirates appear on other frequencies, though. YHWH appears all over the place. I've heard him on 14350 khz (or just above, can't remember the exact frequency right now) and also on 9610 khz.
