Johnnie Tobacco is on the air tonight as well.
6.37MHz
He just reported low power and not optimal antenna - still booming signal in southern part of Norway for the moment.
I am a bit curious of his range.
Anyone else receiving him now? If so, tell me where. :)

Ex pirate broadcaster now on air on 648kHz ;)
my friend grafter, seems like you are using a very offensive tone in the reply.

At least something to remember. :crazy:

Tune in around that frequency (+/- 50-100kHz) late Fridays or Saturdays. I don't know for sure but I think he is transmitting from Netherlands (or Belgium).
He play old pop music and also some "schlagers" in German, Swedish and Norwegian among others - quite amusing if you had your share of "modulation beverage" too! :D
You can send SWL report (QSL) to him per mail and sometimes receive reply next day - which is much quicker than QSL from commercial radio stations. Contact information is found in different groups/forums.
