Station listing for the 2017-2018 Pirate Radio Annual

It's past time that I update the blog! But I have the house to the point where the final inspection is done (still a lot of work to go, but nothing that's quite so pressing), so I hope to update the blog more often again (and not just when it's time for the next HF Global Weekend).

I've been working on the 2017-2018 Pirate Radio Annual and just finished the station listing. The first group is the stations based in North America that were reported on shortwave and 1710 kHz between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2017. This also includes stations from outside the continent that were relayed here, such as Artem's World of Music and Radio Enterhaken.

The 2nd group is stations from Europe that have been reported across a somewhat large area of North America between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2017. Europe is filled with pirates. In fact, in 2017 alone MWPirateFan from the UK heard 172 different Dutch medium-wave pirates. Profiling every international pirate from Europe is way beyond the scope of what I can do with the Pirate Radio Annual (at least at this time), but I draw the line at stations that can either be heard by a number of listeners along the East Coast or if a station can be reported further inland (such as in Ohio), they're in.

I've included Latin American shortwave pirates, which have really taken off, in with the European stations. I think in the book, I might separate the two to make it easier. In total, the book will contain listings for 24 stations from Europe and four from South America, I think this is the most stations from outside of Europe that will have been included in a PRA.

As always, if you operate one of these stations, please feel free to e-mail information about your station, photos, sample QSLs, or audio clips that I could use in the book. Also, if you operate a station and feel that it should be included (and it isn't on the list), please send a link to the loggings. There are a lot of unidentified loggings (and a lot of loggings in general), so it can be easy to miss a station.
