[HCDX]: PiPa #204

Howdy all & welcome to PiPa#204! (This is just the cover sheet, PiPa #204
should either be an attached file to this or should follow right after my
own greetings & name). If you only get the cover letter & not PiPa#204, drop
me a line...it's happened a few X....

In the past week, a "special" edition of #200 was sent out. Sorry about
that. My Internet provider evidently stored some of my old messages &
suddenly mailed them out for no reason. I have no idea how many of my old
computer messages (as old as 6 weeks!) were re-resent by their e-mail
server. Weird, eh?

Some of the biggest news for those in the US has nothing to do with
shortwave at all. Free Radio Berkeley won their case vs. the FCC! Some more
info should be posted in the Links section of the RFI!
(http://www.frn.net/rfi) site in the next day or so.
        Halloween was ACTIVE in North America, but propagation was kinda
weird. It seemed like it was impossible for most people to hear much more
than 1/2 of the stations that were on.
        Radio San Marino has a full out sked for 12/20. Stay tuned here for
more info or see the Euro News on the RFI! page for more info.
Hobby Broadcasting
For everyone interested in hobby-type broadcasting, whether micro radio,
pirate radio, Part-15, cable-access TV, Internet radio, etc: The new
magazine "Hobby Broadcasting" should be out sometime around February. It
should be about 32 to 48 pages in an 8.5" x 11" format--featuring lots of
how-to articles about personal broadcasting. Right now, we're finally up to
requesting articles & classified ads, selling advertising, and processing
subscriptions, etc. Subscriptions in the US cost $12 per year. I haven't
checked the postage rates at the USPS yet, but I should have the
international mailing costs posted on the RFI Webpage soon. For questions,
etc., write me at: ayoder@xxxxxxxx To subscribe, submit ads/articles/etc.,
send it to:
        Cabinet Communications
        PO Box 642
        Mont Alto, PA 17237 

That's it for now, see ya & 73fr,

THE FREE RADIO WEEKLY #96, November 16th, 1997  Loggings marked as "Coe-ON" were made by Alexander, Flannery, Greenall and Wolfish on a DXpedition in Coe Hill, Ontario.

SORRY.......IT'S NOT A PIRATE!!: If you are hearing Spanish on 1700, it is WCMQ in Miami, the third station to start up in the "Expanded Band". Incidentally, there are another 25 or so stations that have either applied to move to the Expanded Band above 1600 or have actually received a construction permits to move. One website with a list of these stations can be found at: http://members.aol.com/RKDX/exband.html

"We kicked their butts" - Stephen Dunifer
Judge Wilken turned down the FCC's request for an injunction, refuted FCC claims that the case was out of her jurisdiction and ordered the FCC to answer questions regarding whether their regulations violate the first amendment! The FCC will probably appeal, but this means that FRB will get to survive at least another year. [Info via Paul Griffin].

COMMENTS: Shawn Axelrod: "poor conditions combined with a rain and then a snow storm wiped out DX. The shovelling is not as much fun as listening but nobody gave me a choice!!"

 Rich & T Jurrens: "reception was really poor for us - probably from all of those porch lights being on".

 Chris Scott: "Electrical work in the apartment below me gave me a +20 electrical hum in my radio just before Halloween. That pretty much obliterated any reception."

 Lee Silvi: "Slow weekend - I only heard Radio Azteca # 26 three times in 24 hours! How am I ever going to get all 40 cards at this rate?"

George Zeller: "That's it for a while, since I leave tomorrow for ten days in Switzerland............Yodel ay eee hoo!"

RADIO PERFEKT now uses the address: Postfach 1732, D-48578 Gronau, Germany

RADIO BSA last week announced Postbus 643, NL-7900 AP Hoogeveen, Holland.

Please: call the crazy FARMERS at Holland # 529432526 to stop that awful evil
echo and splatter down to 6280 kHz. The scene is upset about that guys...

To alleviate the crowding on 6955 kHz, some US stations are using new
frequencies around 6925 kHz from now on. These frequencie were in use on
Halloween also e.g. LOUNGE LIZARD RADIO. So give it a check now and then.

Again TAKE IT EASY RADIO was heard in the early sunday morning hours with a
solid signal.
