Chris Lobdell has been a radio hobbyist since 1968 but only got interested in the pirates in the early '90s when he joined The A*C*E and PiPa (the Pirate Pages). He started the email-only Free Radio Weekly with Niel Wolfish, creating an almost up to the moment summary of recent pirate activity. He also began "The Pirate Report" for NASWA, originally running a single page, in 1998. Chris records "Pirating with Cumbre", a feature contained in the program "DXing with Cumbre" if you can find it on a radio station somewhere. His pirate radio-activity has to share time with his wife and growing sons, as well as his job, so obviously he stays busy.
