” The ever-persistent Hassan the pirate from Baghdad, Iraq continues to plague the Amateur Radio bands. This guy has been pirating and bootlegging multiple calls for several years. He has been heard bootlegging the calls YI1HR, YI1H, YI1HRP and YI1HI and pirating the calls YI1BGD, YI1IRQ, YI1DZ and most recently TA7/YI1RZ. Unfortunately in Iraq there does not seem to be any enforcement to take Hassan off the air, much less do anything about the situation. Therefore let’s get the word out not to work or spot Hassan who operates on 20 Meters SSB, usually around 14178-14188. In fact the best policy is to ignore him completely on the air.
