1KW double stack on 460ft

Post by ronald001 » Wed May 16, 2018 8:52 am

Just 4 fun:

Dutch pirate "The secret pirate" was shutdown yesterday after 6 days of broadcasting.
The transmitter and double stack antenna were installed at the top of a high voltage pylon at 460ft, reports came from every part of NL


Unfortunately the website is in Dutch:

Transmitter was a DRFS-6 with a BLF188XR final.

How did you power the rig ? Crocodile clips ? :lol: :tup

Dutch OFCOM when they got to the site : GULP ! :shock:

Hope they carry spare under pants in the van.

Probably inductively coupled to one of the conductors

They tapped of the mains from the aircraft warning lights...

Dutch OFCOM visited the site 2 days after going on-air, but it took another 4 days before someone was available that was authorized to climb the tower.

Not true Ronald
Only by Danceradio (2004) the power came from the lights
In the Youtube Mov you can see me making it

By "geheime Piraat" they had a cable running up the pilon from the ground to the top
You can see the people from the electrical company on the bottom of the tower to cut the power
Thats the only reason why the transmitter thay on air for a few days
How i know? Radio Muziekstand and Danceradio where using the same place in 2008

Ah i see.
From what i've heard, this picture that you are talking about was just for reference, and not of the actual situation on site.
But i know who you are, so i guess you're right ;)
