Past pirate antenna spotted!

Post by Gigahertz » Sat Dec 07, 2019 3:23 pm

Just though I would start a thread of stations spotted that are no longer on or been heard since.
This could be the bedroom DJ, One rig wonders etc

Add your pictures but no locations! Admin can decide if the thread allowed or worth keeping!

I'll start with a few!

A station that operated from a block on 101.4 before Flex switched on. Was playing Polish music no DJ's or speech.
Antenna looks like it was the Chinise ones's off ebay so assumed the transmitter was also. Had a range of 7miles.

A station that broadcasted direct from a house on 90.5 relaying a station from Jamaica. Used to get out for 3-4miles.

I remember when that thing popped up in Hayes a couple of years back, didn't realise the aerial was still up 2 years later.

These are old photos I found.

When it went off, the antenna was removed aswel. Was trying to find the photos I had of Lips radio but think I've lost them when I upgraded my phone.

Ahh fair enough, I was thinking from your first post that it was still there.

From memory I think they shut down a couple of weeks before flex switched on.
