Where Can I Find Pirates?

The answer to this question shifts frequently, but these are good bets. Beware of legitimate broadcasters in some of these ranges. AM, USB and even some LSB is used, along with Slow Scan TV (SSTV). See the SSTV section of the HF Software Decoders article for applications that can copy this mode.
