After spending a few great (but very cold) weekends camping on the Welsh mountains with a few radios, I’m happy to have a quiet night sat listening to some shortwave pirate stations, while I catch up on a pile up of long overdo emails.
Either conditions were poor tonight or the new longwire antenna I’ve just put up isn’t doing the job it was designed for. I’ve noticed its not consistent at all on huge sections of the SW bands and must take some time this week to ‘remind’ it what its mission in life is 🙂

Tonight’s favorite (by a mile) had to be Radio Joey, which played some excellent (for my taste) music and seems to one of those pirates who really interact with their listeners.
What a nice change it is to just relax, do nothing for a night and listen to some good music, which sounded very sweet through my new Philips headphones.
It won’t last though as the merry go round that is a full working week starts again tomorrow 🙂
