Barones had been off air for the whole year, but made his return on 1575 kHz before moving to various frequencies around 1611. He was on air for many hours testing out equipment that had not been used for over nine months. His antenna was a temporary 45 metre longwire. Everything was far from perfect, but it was tremendous to here this legendary pirate back on the air. And today, he was back again!
The antenna today was his old inverted L, and many of the modulation problems Barones had last weekend were gone. Before the sun had set here in England he was coming through very well. And as the sun went down his signal was booming. I made a recording as he was chatting to other stations in a qso. Click on the YouTube video and you will hear Baro, and also Brugwachter and Dageraad with reports for him.
Welcome back Barones!
