re:nonaligned radio

  I did some stuff on KBOO summer of '78. I did Radio Esoterica on KBVR  
OSU station,in Corvallis on and off between  '75 and 82 or 3. I was never 
student-my version of pirate radio was to just take over a slot.No -one 
thought to ask if I was a student. I'd been around when people did that at 
WGTU in DC,the Georgetown U station. There are a number of Micro pirate 
stations  I knew some people  in the 90s who broadcast with this little 
15 watt transmitters,and they'd get several people around the SF/Berkely 
/Oakland doing it simultaneoulsy ,which made them almost impossible to 
,cause you have to triangulate to locate a signal source. Years ago I knew 
someone who would broadcast from a van-a moving signal is also hard to 
locate. Berkely and Santa Cruz have Free radio stations that have been 
for years.Periodically the FCC siezes their equip,but they get some more 
continue-maybe change broadcast freq.
  There are actually fairly cheap freqs on AM radio in  many area. I've 
picking up tis statioin that broadcasts in Hindi,Urdu ,Punjabi mostly talk 
,but they play a lot of Filmi and Indian Pop some of which is very cool. 
Very low broadcats standards they constantly cut things off  and jump 
, volume changes radically.Radio Hamasafer I pick up a Chinese AM station 
too,I just listen to the sound of the language,like it's music it's 
  all ads ,I can't even tell.

Don't get caught with egg on your face. Play Chicktionary!
