1720 heats up!

Posted by kilokat7 on December 23, 2013

Pirate activity has continued to be slow at the top of the AM dial for most of this DX season, especially with the void left by the absence of The Big Q on 1710.  Some new life has been discovered on 1720 kHz though, perhaps the new MW pirate “clear channel”.  There have been a number of shortwave pirate radio shows being relayed on 1720 kHz during the last few weeks including Radio Free Whatever, Pirate Radio Boston and Partial India Radio.  DXers from Montana to Florida and the Midwest have reported hearing these broadcasts.  I’ve caught a few of these shows in West Michigan, including Pirate Radio Boston’s 21st anniversary show on 1720 kHz and Radio Free Whatever.  Here’s a two hour off-air recording of last night’s 1720 kHz MW pirate fest:
