I heard a station once on shortwave. The call sign was “WORK”. They apparently were playing music and talk in honor of the working class citizen.
They gave a mail drop address and I wrote in with a report. I got back a photograph print of an abandoned factory with some message on that back that I have long forgotten.
It was an interesting experience and I’d do it again if given the opportunity.
On another strange note, I was tuning around the shortwave band once and heard what I thought was a weak pirate station. I kept tuning in to see if I could hear something else, but they just kept playing “The Hour of Slack”… perfect fodder for a pirate station.
The next day I realized that I was hearing some kind of harmonic signal from my own Part 15 AM station down in the shortwave band! It turns out I was playing a netstream that was carrying “The Hour of Slack.”
