Celebrating a pirate legend Part five

We moved to our current house in 2008 and the radio hobby took a back seat as we sorted out our new home and looked after our first daughter. After a couple of years though, I decided to buy a new receiver. I bought a second-hand Kenwood R5000 and put up about 20 metres of wire down the garden.

It had been a few years since I had tuned in to the pirates and for me the hobby was not burning as brightly as it had done previously. However, I had a listen around the MW one night and have a guess who I heard? Yes, it was Barones. From that night onwards I was hooked on our hobby once again.

This recording, from 1675 kHz on Saturday, February 5, 2011 is the first one I made after returning to the pirate scene.

  1. Good to hear the long recording of Barones at the top end of the MW band and to read your history too, Wizard !

    Hey 1675 is free tonight so let's hear you on again Baro ....
