Post Ireland - raids on pirates continue Reply with quote
Thursday 23rd Sept 2004

North-east stations Kiss FM and Wild Country were both raided by ComReg this
afternoon. The regulators took thousands of euro worth of equipment, forcing
both stations off the air. Other unlicensed stations in the area went off
air as a precaution against raids. Both Kiss FM and Wild Country are
operated by the same group.

According to eye-witness accounts, ComReg also paid a visit to Clanrye FM's
site. The station's elderly operator had taken his gear out of his hut -
which is in the field next to Kiss FM's site - during the Kiss raid and hid
the transmitter in some gorse bushes. This was taken following a search by
the ComReg officials. Although no search warrant was produced, they also
took a Denon tuner from Clanrye's hut.

Clanrye had only returned to air last Thursday following a theft two weeks
ago in which they lost a brand new 300w rig.
