Passing out pretzels to the neighbor hood kids
Driving a semi and dodging trick or treaters.
Probably spend the evening with my great grandson and then come home and listen to coast to coast on my trusty C Crane radio.
I plan on listening to pirates between 6900KHZ and 7000KHZ on October 31st. It’s always interesting to hear what these folks broadcast. Let’s hope the sun cooperates and goes quiet on that evening so we can get good reception. Of late, shortwave reception has been a bit of a drag.
I love Halloween! I roast pumpkin seeds from my carved pumpkins. Have chili our halloween tradition. Hand out candy to the neighborhood kids. Watch something scary on TV. Then later listen to Ghost to Ghost on my Solar Observer.
A couple weeks before halloween, We make about out about 60 milk jug ghosts with different faces. On Halloween we put tea lights in each one and line the driveway and walkway with the “spooky” ghosts. We also also put wooden tombstones in our garden beds and hang a few cellophane Milk jug ghosts in the trees which blow around In the wind (scary). We play spooky music from an SD card on our Senta Ally Blutooth speaker and wait for the wary trick or treaters. Boo!
”AM I AFRAID OF THE DARK”.HECK NO I WORKED SECOND SHIFT FOR 31 YEARS.COMING HOME IN THE DARK WASN’T SCARY AT ALL.EVEN AT 3 IN THE MORNING.
I have 16 grandchildren and four going on five greatgrandchildren, I am clearly going to be spending the evening giving everyone I can candy, to include as many of those grandchildren as I can, and all of the neighborhood children as well, and hopefully I will not have any left since I am always so tempted by junk!
We’ll hand out small bag pretzels,with our senta speaker hooked up to the sirius-xm receiver channel 145 that’s playing spooky background noise on halloween through an open window by the front porch — have the porch light and 2 garage outdoor lights bagged with jack-o-lantern bags & wife & I dress up in something scary — BOOO……
I will be taking place of my dad & step mom at their house to pass out candy to the kids. Will be dressed as Jigsaw from Saw horror movies!
I’ll be eating a jelly donut, nibbling on candy corn, sipping apple cider and listening to scary stuff on the radio.
Am I the only one who listens to pirates on Halloween? Even with the small turn-out of pirates, it still was interesting. I tuned in Clarion Radio on 6950 at midnight GMt and Wolverine Radio on 6935 KHZ, both in SSB. Another pirate came on at 0100 UT on 6925 KHZ but I didn’t hear an ID.
While waiting for pirates to come on, I heard the aircraft weather from Trenton Military and the weather for ships but I didn’t ID that station.
I also tuned in the Voice of Vietnam at 01:00 UT but I forget the frequency. It was about 7325 KHZ but I’m not sure about that.
As usual I will be tuned in to coast to coast for ghost to ghost…
There were only 3 pirates I heard last night. I also heard some Spanish-speaking folks speaking with each other on a few frequencies. Conditions were good.
