Welcome Note

Welcome everybody to my new pirate ham radio blog. The goal of this blog is to allow discussions to take place for those who dont have a ham licence yet but they do operate outside the ham bands. Everybody is invited licensed or non licensed although i think many ham operators will disapprove what we do.

I am Greek by the way. I am 20 years old and i dont have a licence yet. Due to university i didnt get a chance to take the exams for a ham licence although i paid twice the fees for the tests.
I do operate though illegally outside the ham bands.
I have full knowledge that this is illegal and that is a "bad" thing to do. But hey... i am not bothering anyone and i fully respect ham operators and their rights as well non licensed operators. Never bothered anyone never will.
Every one should respect each other.

Please feel free to comment on anything

Guide 2

And there you have it! There are also a lot of isolated frequencies that see use like 12255 Khz. Radio Clandestine was the first and others have followed by operating inside the Shortwave Broadcast bands as well.
Survival Tip - Unless you are crazy, DO NOT operate your station in a Amateur Band! Not only will you be jammed but in all likelihood the FCC WILL BE notified within minutes! If you want to draw the WRONG kind of attention to yourself, this is the best way!
With all these frequency choices it looks like picking a spot to set up shop could be a daunting task. Not so, simply look and listen to where others are being heard and try these frequencies.
Success Tip - When choosing a frequency to use, monitor it for several days to determine who or what might be using it. A clear frequency is a good frequency!
For beginning pirates, I suggest that you attempt 41 Meters to start with. Don't worry about the other bands yet. 41 is the easiest to start out with and has the least interference potential and biggest listening audience. You also will probably not have to modify your transmitter in any way to get going on 41 and if your just starting out, keeping things simple and easy as possible will help you greatly. It is difficult enough just getting on the air! With time and experience under your belt, you will develop the skills and confidence to tackle the other bands! For intermediate pirates, give 87, 74, 43, 22, or 14 Meters a try! Most of these bands can be hit without having to modify your amateur transmitter in any way.

    Amateurs dont jam other ops.This is common practice and is only used by cbers such as yourself or ham radio wannabes.
    Operate on the wrong freq and the FBI get notified

  3. "Amateurs dont jam other ops. This is common practice and is only used by cbers as yourself or ham radio wannades."
    NOT TRUE

    Often Ham's jam each other.
    The exams dont ensure that each operator will in fact respect each other.
    The respect issue has nothing to do with the ham license but with what kind of person you are.
    I'v never jammed anyone. I'v never operated inside a ham band.
    And those who think that they are better than cbers and pirates just because they passed a test with already published answers...they arent.
    I will get my license as soon as i can. But until then i will keep operating outside the ham bands without bothering anyone.

  4. You may think/feel you are not bothering anyone, but in fact you could be without even knowing!

    Look at a digital mode called "olivia", you can have a good qso and NOT be able to hear the signal at all!
