MW Pirates


Back in the day, (the 1980s) MW used to have loads of pirates from republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. I used to spend a lot of time on MW logging stations all over UK (mostly legal ones).

There is only 2 MW stations that I know that are actually illegal here which have been left alone for the last number of years, I guess they have been unofficially excepted.

981KHz Radio Star (was Radio Star Country) in Monaghon ROI.

846KHz Radio North, Donegal ROI (this is actually run by a well known amateur user of the [sign in to see URL] MHz network).

I think each station is using about a Kilowatt, unfortunately though most of the programming is Bible and Country and Western music that really does not interest me.

Something else to hunt for I guess when scanning the bands.

Holy CRAP Batman!

C&W in the UK? I just can't fathom driving by Stonehenge and listening to Willie Nelson.

I live in the USA "South" (where most C&W comes from) and about 45% of the stations are C&W. In say Chicago or Milwaukee there are about 2 to 3 country stations in each format. I cannot STAND country. I did radio for a bunch of years and had to do country for a year when there were no other better radio jobs open. At least I got paid well to play crap music.
