Another free radio wiki

Recently this blog featured the free radio wikipedia ( set up by Jonny of SRS, which unfortunately hasn't really taken off.

This week, while surfing the internet, I discovered Jonny was not the first as there is another pirate radio wikipedia. Its address is and it mainly concentrates on landbased pirates on FM and medium wave in England - in particular the Midlands and Northern England. It is a detailed look at stations, broken down by both decade and area.

There are also short sections on UK shortwave pirates from the 80s, Irish pirates and Laser 558.

Another section features radio-related terminology. Certainly well worth a visit.

Now, I wonder if there are any more wikis out there?
