Is it open season??

Post by yellowbeard » Sun Mar 29, 2020 5:31 am

So everyone is under lockdown, streets are empty and only critical work is permitted. This means OFCOM (here its COMREG) are self isolating and binging the netflux like the rest of us. I reckon if you are not causing interference you could stick on a fat transmitter for the duration - maybe months - and get away with it. People are banged up at home at the moment, it'd be almost a public service to provide them some entertainment - what you all think? :mrgreen:

Yeah do it from home much safer that way, at least you won't infect all those hundreds of people that live up masts or up on tower block roofs. :tup

Yeah, it's been quiet up here since we were raided in 2006 (Club FM). We're back on air but only broadcast a few times in the month, need to keep those fuckers guessing :lol: ... it's worked for 2 years now.
