I've just started to update the stations links page. It's got a long way to go, but I guess that's half the fun! Feel free to e-mail links to stations.

The Winter 1998/1999 issue is almost sold out...only a few issues left, so if you're trying to fill out your collection, but it now! Don't worry, though, Over the next few weeks, I'll gradually be putting the articles from this issue on this Webpage.

If there's interest, I'll start putting up the online classifieds again....and try to keep them updated on a regular basis. Speaking of which, does anyone have a Knight or Lafayette phono oscillator? I'm also looking for ads & schematics from these.

 Photo of the Week: He-Man Radio


A clip from He-Man Radio will be included on the

Pirate Radio Stations CD

He-Man Radio started broadcasting in 1990 as a heavy-handed parody of tough guys. He Man broadcasted bagpipe music because it was more manly than any other type of music and always in USB for the same reason.

He Man had a powerful signal throughout the US into Europe from his "hilltop in Ohio" in the early 1990s. He Man became more caught up up with weightlifting and bagpiping in the mid 1990s and hasn't been heard for several years.




 If you're interested in having your station featured here, send photos, QSLs, etc. We plan to include regular pics from LPFM, shortwave pirate, offshore stations, Internet broadcasters, etc.
