    I think it was 20 meters. I have heard "pirate" stations on lower frequencies in the past. 6950 I think? I've never seen this on the 20 meter band before.

    I'm confused,......... just because there is a pic of a pirate sent does not mean it is a "pirate" station.... there is a licensed amateur on 7.173 that often sends "pirate" pics,..... aarrrrgh.

    that being said,......... 6925USB Lots of SWBC pirates use that frequency

    Interesting. Can't imagine thee is a large group of SSTV pirates but I don't know for sure.

    If all that was sent was that picture then the operator can't call him or herself a pirate. That's disrespectful to the real pirates out there. Argggggg matey di dah di dah di dah!!!
