Hello friends! About an hour ago, my pirate station has been shut down by Serbian regulatory agency for electronic communications (our version of OFCOM).
It was totally new experience. Inspector called on our phone and kindly asked us to turn off transmitter and link while he was standing below antenna mast. We turned transmitter off (while watching him through studio window) after 10 minutes, and called him back. Guy said: "Many thanks for cooperation. Agency will arrange another control of that frequency in randomly chosen moment, please do not turn it on again as you could face very high penalties and law charges. Thanks, and goodbye!"
There was no raid of equipment and internet stream is still on. He also provided his email to contact him so he can explain us what are consequences of illegal broadcasting and how to try to legalize it!

Superb... I wish they would be that nice about it here in the UK....

Well done for keeping it running for nine months! Change the name and location, Switch it back on...
Sounds like a good plan... Well Done ! :tup
