Portuguese DXer Carlos Goncalves reports on the PlayDX blog his loggings in January. Here is a breakdown of how many pirates he logged between 1610 kHz and 1800 kHz from which countries:
UNID COUNTRIES 12
The Dutch stations tend to operate on the lower end of the X-band. The highest frequency Carlos observed a Dutch station was 1675 kHz.
The Greeks can be found anywhere between 1610 & 1800 kHz while the Balkan stations go for the higher frequencies. The lowest was observed on 1636 kHz but most operate above 1660 kHz.
What is interesting is just how many Greek pirates there are. Carlos' logs tend to favour the Mediterranean countries with the Greeks outnumbering the Dutch pirates.
To see Carlos' logs go to:
I should also mention UK-based Wizard's MW Free Radio blog which shows just how active the Dutch scene is.
He logged 98 Dutch MW pirate operators in January which goes to show, as he says, the medium wave pirate scene is thriving - although most of the activity comes from the Netherlands, Greece and the Balkans. Very little from the UK.
