The SATCOM Pirates Are At It Again

I have been having fun on my NooElec dongle, using it as my software defined radio. I was monitoring the 250 MHz portion and I wasn’t sure what I had witnessed. Is this UHF Pirates on a 250 MHz SATCOM? This is some interesting stuff. The SATCOM pirates are at it again!

The pirates are using the US Military SATCOM system to chat. And guess what? They’re being heard around the world it seems.

These dudes have hijacked the frequencies and are laughing about it? When I listened to these guys chatting, I didn’t have a clue what they were doing. Believe me. They were laughing.

If you have the dongle or a police scanner that has this band plan on it, try it.
