Re: Hot 92.0, West Midlands

maybe we can find someone in a big city like NY who will do us an sdr recording of FM and/or 1710 am
i'd also quite like to experiment with decoding FM subcarrier audio


years ago someone made me a recording of 6mhz US pirates which was interesting, sadly i don't still have it

Re: Hot 92.0, West Midlands

Do ofcock work purely on complaints or do they cruise around all day df'ing pirates?

In the states the legal stations do the monitoring then the contact the FCC and say "station X is stealing our listeners"
