RTE told to stop jamming pirate radio signals
30 December 2014

Pirate radio stations caused quite the stir in 1984, creating a headache for both the RTÉ and the Government.

Unlicensed, pirate radio stations flourished in Ireland in the early 1980s — providing younger listeners an alternative to the state broadcaster.

Amongst them, were the Dublin stations of Sunshine Radio and Nova — which employed a full roster of presenters.

Jamming signals:
Due to pirate radio stations setting up shop on frequencies with no licence, the Government moved to impose further regulations on them. Meanwhile, RTÉ also attempted to put a stop to stations using illegal frequencies by putting out jamming signals.

There was cause for concern as the frequencies being used and the jamming signals impacted on phone lines, as well as frequencies used by hospitals and airports.

In state files released under the 30 year rule, a letter from Dublin City Council to the Government said they “deplored” the situation with pirate radio stations and was becoming a public safety matter as people could not reach doctors when the phones were out of use.

The Taoiseach at the time, the late Garret Fitzgerald, received a number of letters from members of the public, particularly young people, asking for the Government to intervene and begin granting more broadcasting licences.

This quick reply came from HRI in Australia after I reported on their programme, relayed by Cupid Radio on Christmas Day. Thanks very much. This isn't my first HRI QSL - I received another in 2008 after hearing him via Spider Radio. But after a break of a few years he is back with new programmes and well worth a listen!

No Christmas show from Weekend Music Radio

Jack of WMR has updated his website:
"WMR and RADIO GSV are taking a break for now to try and find a new remote broadcast site. The last transmission for WMR was 23rd November. This was forced upon us due to web trolls that made broadcasting from the Radio GSV fixed location too risky. We had a good run though. It is just a shame that we probably will not make it on the airwaves this Christmas time as planned.

The programme on 23rd November featured a recording from Radio Woodstock from 1980, a Scottish pirate station that ran live from Falkirk for a few months, and took phone calls live on air."

It is a big shame that some idiots have decided to sabotage WMR/GSV's broadcasts. Hopefully they can find a new secure location and return to the airwaves soon.

Hobart Radio Int's Christmas special

 Hobart Radio writes: "I sent an email out to the group about a week or two ago requesting help relaying shows here from downunder in Australia. I'd like to say a big thank you and that is has been extraordinary to see such generosity to get shows on the air by different stations. Thank you! It is very exciting to see the hf band is no way nearing an end unlike many government broadcasters feel. Shortwave is not an ancient technology!

I have produced a shortwave broadcast-ready 2014 Christmas special which I would like to offer to any other pirates who would like a one-off different show to broadcast over the Christmas period.

It's out and ready for anyone to listen to - the 2014 CHRISTMAS SPECIAL.

In this year's show we play music by John Lennon and Cascada, we travel back to Australia in 1958 via Doctor Who's spare TARDIS and see what Christmas means then. On our journey home we get a comical cultural dose of a hot summers Christmas in Australia - it's no winter wonderland downunder! And as we do every year we finish it off with Jiminy Cricket's Twas the night before Christmas."

DX programme looking for relay stations

 Message from Hobart Radio International:
"I am writing to see if a station is willing to form a partnership. I publish the popular DX Extra shortwave news show at getting around 500 listeners a month - 250 per show and growing.

"I am passionate about the pirate radio hobby and feature pirate radio logs including recordings on the show. Back in the mid 2000s Hobart Radio International was proudly being relayed by The baltic sea relay station and JRRI. Would a station consider relaying the show as a partnership so I could announce your station at the end of each show as well as promote it on the website with a direct link to your show, the link would also be displayed on every show published as it is included in the transcript. I am even open to the possibility of promos advertising the radio station.

I am very passionate about the shortwave hobby, dxing to hear new and exciting content on shortwave but really feel disconnected with hobbyists who used to tune into Hobart Radio International between 2005-2008. It would be great to once again reach a European audience and maybe even an American audience. Sadly commercial stations cost a lot making it hard for independant small stations to get out into the radiowaves."


Kind regards,

Dutch pirate in FM on 27 mHZ

I was tuning around 27 megs on the Twente SDR when I heard this Dutch station on 27125 kHz in FM mode. Very strong signal so I guess broadcasting from the Twente area. I sent a  clip to Sluwe Vos who thinks it might have been 27 mHz amateur relaying an FM pirate. I have heard Dutch pirates on this band before.

Here is the 2:40 minute recording I made on November 21 at 2120 UTC. Any other suggestions welcome.

Radio Caroline & Manx Radio collaborate for week of special programmes

Special programmes scheduled to start tomorrow according to the Radio Caroline website (and include overnight relays of Caroline on 1368 kHz next week, so get out the MW loop!):

2014 is the 50th Anniversary of both Radio Caroline and Manx Radio. To celebrate we are collaborating on a series of programmes to go out on both stations between Saturday 15th and Thursday 20th November.

Shortly after commencing broadcasts in March 1964 Radio Caroline sailed its biggest ship North – broadcasting as it went – and dropped anchor in Ramsey Bay off the Isle of Man in order to beam its powerful signal into Ireland, Scotland and the North of England.

Nobody ever expected it to happen … but 50 years on and Manx Radio has forgiven its cheeky competitor, and neighbour, and invited a unique partnership for one week, in order to look back "50 years on".

Saturday 15th November: 8.30-10.30 – Chris Williams' Carnaby Street programme part-recorded aboard our radio-ship Ross Revenge
Monday 17th – Thursday 20th November: 6.30-9pm – Radio Caroline broadcasting special programmes via Manx Radio (FM)
Monday 17th – Thursday 20th November: Midnight-6am – Overnight relay of Radio Caroline Programmes on Manx Radio (AM)
Simultaneous programmes on Manx Radio and Radio Caroline will include documentaries, archive recordings and specially re-created programming featuring 60’s music and nostalgia. Hear the star DJ’s of the period including Tom Lodge, Roger Gale, Mike Ahearn, and Gord Cruise. Even the "Royal Ruler" himself Tony Prince will return 50 years on with a special programme for Manx and Radio Caroline listeners! Full programme guide here:

Manx Radio have separate online players for their AM and FM services:

Tape Crackers: A Personal Journey Through London's Pirate Radio Stations

Michael Finch owns what must well be the biggest archive of pirate radio tapes in the country. Like many who tuned into the pirate stations that saturated London’s FM bandwidth in the 90s, Finch recorded his favourite broadcasts on tape – not for posterity but to “share the wealth”, as he puts it, with his schoolmates. Few though can have had the dedication of Finch, who continued making recordings for over a decade.

£800 fine for man caught running pirate radio station

A father-of-two has been left with a court bill of more than £800 after he admitted running an illegal music radio station from his Northamptonshire home.

Thomas Furniss, from Queen Street in Rushden, said he started broadcasting because of his skills in electronics and was not interested in music or becoming a DJ.

The former Crystal Electronics employee, who was representing himself, said: “It was just a hobby at first because I have always been interested in how electronics work, and I found out on the internet how to do it. I didn’t realise how serious an offence it was.”

Furniss, aged 27, was arrested after someone made a complaint to Ofcom in June about the pirate radio station, named “XS Radio”, which ran from February to July this year. The station was traced to his home in an investigation which cost almost £3,000.

During a hearing at Northampton Magistrates’ Court yesterday, Furniss pleaded guilty to managing, financing, operating and running an unauthorised broadcasting station from his home.

He was given a £280 fine, ordered to pay court costs of £500 and a victim surcharge of £28, and received an order for his laptop and transmitting devices to be forfeited.

FRS Holland to repeat broadcast

Dear FRS Friends,

Last Sunday propagation conditions were not the best (lots of static noise). On top of that there was a total fade out on SW just before 12 CET and it took more than 2 hours before the signal had fully recovered. And if that's not enough...our afternoon stream was affected by a technical break.
Taking all this into consideration, we have decided to give it another try next Sunday November 3rd, same times, same frequencies! Despite the low power, 9301 kHz was doing fairly well last Sunday.
Keep an eye on it as it was sometimes stronger than 7700!

On Sunday November 3rd FRS-Holland will be on air  with a full broadcast (repeat Oct. 26th) between 08:52- 15:00 UTC. Frequencies will be 7700// 9300 kHz.

Internet Stream
That same day between 14:52- 21:00 UTC/15:52- 22.00 CEST will see a full repeat on the internet. Check on your computer < >.  

There is a backlog as far as QSL cards is concerned. Next few weeks we will try to anser all mails/
letters which haven't been handled so far. That's a promise!

New book about offshore pirate radio

Pirate Radio: An Illustrated History Hardcover by Keith Skues & David Kindred 

The description on Amazon says:
"In an age when the airwaves were tightly controlled by the authorities, pirate radio was the illicit and illustrious haven for music lovers across the nation. From the first broadcast in 1964, the cowboys of the radio world fed their listeners' desire for pop and rock music and, by doing so, changed British radio forever. Through more than 100 crisp, black-and-white photographs, Pirate Radio: An Illustrated History brings to life the 'golden years' of pirate radio. Featuring pictures of the crew, the boats and the fans, this book takes the reader on a journey from the formative years of pirate radio, through its political persecution and beyond."
