Pirate radio station raided in Somerset

A suspected pirate radio station operating from the centre of Taunton, Somerset, has been closed down following a raid by police and OFCOM officers.

Town Centre Neighbourhood officers and members of OFCOM, the independent regulator and competition authority for the UK communications industries, executed a warrant under the Wireless and Telegraphy Act 2006.

Computers and broadcasting equipment was seized during the operation in the High Street area, police say.

Police were called in after complaints about Rage FM, which broadcast junk music and political comment, including expletives.

WR International QSL card

This QSL was received in the post for an email report sent in January. WR International is a difficult catch in the UK due to its high frequency but was heard quite well on the Twente SDR receiver in The Netherlands.

In addition to the QSL card, I received a WRI pen and calendar plus a personal letter. The station has been on the air for 20 years, has a power output of 35 watts fed into a wire dipole antenna and broadcasts live every Sunday morning from 0800-1100 UTC on 12257 kHz.

Thanks for the QSL.
