Aegean Sea: sun, fishes and pirates... From Bocca di Magra, with Dario

games of Torino. Real bad modulation and some explosion... Here a list, just

Greek Pirates

Hello, :ahowy:

It looks like that a lot of greek pirates use a single tube transmitter, just like many dutch pirates in the early years.
Self oscillating power tube, when the antenna moves in the wind, the transmitting frequency also dos :(
Who cares they are on air ](*,)
But we have a mediumwave reception report from Italy :horay: thank you for that.

Greetings Jan

I suppose that good at the end off the line is the reception strenght.
