Global Pirate HF-Weekend 14-15.1.2012

Radio Black Bird QSLI have recently activated my other old hobby: listening of foreign broadcasting stations on medium- and shortwaves. This weekend there was a special activity for so called “free radio” around the world, so many “pirate stations” have been active. I decided to log my MW/SW catched to this blog.
