Post My ex pirate station Reply with quote
I used to run a pirate station with my m8 dj snoopy,back in 1996.
In the UK the D.T.I are real tough on pirate radio stations.
When we first started out,,we brought a 1watt transmitter from a bloke we met over the cb,,it was a very dodgy tx,,and we had no end of problems with it,,looked like it was home built.
The ariel it came with as a bamboo stick with the inner core of rg58 coax wrapped round it in a coil.
Because we were new to the pirate radio scene,,,we didnt know what was the right gear to use.
Eventually it packed up,,,we found a site on the net,,were we got a 1watt tx kit.
It was a great transmitter,,,no drifting at all,,so good infact we upgraded to a 5watt mono tx,,,which we later brought a stereo encoder for.
Any way to cut a long story short,,,we were broadcasting for nearly 4 years,,,24 hours aday from thusday till sunday midnight.
When i went to the studio 1 night there was some police and some guys from the D.T.I there holding arieals and tracking equipment in there hands,,,by then they had already located the tx and turned it off,,,my m8 was already there being asked loads of questions....

We were taken to court,,,fined £200 each and all equipment was siezed

Anybody else been caught ,,would like to hear ur stories

Hi mate if you have being active here you will probably reconise me.
i started as naive as possible but im getting there sooner or later.
im in london and pirate stations are jumping like masheroums just like me.
i decided to pissoff the only GREEK radiostation in the uk and make another one as an alternative to those who have to put up with the S*** the legal one is transmiting.
i have no intention of being rude or swearing the system and i definetly will not overide anybody elses frequency but i am keen to learn the tricks of the industry!!! i am not DTI IM JUST A BLOODY STUDENT with a hobby.
ive being told that as long as im polite and not agresive, do not scruble anybodies else frequency and transmite after 18.00 i shall be ok cos the DTI shut at 17.30 but i still dont think that is enough.
i know eventualy ill get cought but i want it to be atleast 6 months to a year before that happens
any suggestions to keep me low profile

thanks and respect
