    Some northern chap on SJ sells them. keeps changing his screename though, I think his current one is “Capacitor”.

    From what I’ve seen he is proper brainy and knows his stuff but I’m surprised you have not seen his kit already on ebay, maybe they are being leaned on by authorities…

    my pirate days are long gone now and TBH I wouldn’t even advise it any more especially in London, too many scum on that scene these days what are actually spreading a culture of hate and violence via the airwaves… although looking at your location and age I realise you may be aware of this and might even be from the same stomping ground where I grew up (SE London…)

    Seen a few from this guy for sale recently, wouldn’t be sure about the quality tho.. I would imagine you want kit you can use a wireless link to, so that you don’t loose your studio if your transmitter gets busted. At least that’s what I have been lead to be believe.

    Let us know how you do. Mate of mine was interested in setting a small one up somewhere in Devon, where we have a fair amount of spare space in the spectrum. Don’t have many tower blocks round here to locate a transmitter on tho, so I really don’t know how well he is going to do..

    can’t remember exact laws but I think it may be illegal to import stuff like that into here from foreign countries (the Post Office/BT and then the DTI clamped down back in the 1980s to stop the Chinese flooding the market with cheap illegal CB rigs and pirate FM TXs)

    Ofcom are clamping down again anyway

    I was told by the TX engineer off one station I played on in the 90s if people went to a radio ham rally to buy components the anoraks would ask “whats your callsign”

    if you didn’t have one they’d quietly tip off the DTI(Ofcom) man who would be lurking around (which is why he actually got his ham license so it would be less bait when he bought kit..)

    a lot of the pirate engineers are actually moonlighting mobile phone networks engineers (makes sense as they have the knowledge) and its not uncommon for some mobile phone masts to acquire a few extra bits and pieces..

    I think a few of the better ones walked away from the scene in the late 90s though as they didn’t agree with the violence between rival crews on UK garage stations, so you’ve got loads of people buying kit off ebay but with not enough RF knowledge

    the worst one is the badly configured band I link what ends up TX’ing onto the fire brigade main set radio frequencies :you_crazy:crazy_diz – Fireman sam does NOT want to hear some rude bwoy chatting postcodes when he is supposed to be putting out a burning Astra somewhere in E3…

    and that sort of station doesn’t last long because its not a good idea to piss off people who have big ladders :laugh_at:

    it once used to be a “gentlemans agreement” when people did get done but now When Ofcom do studio raids on some London stations they wear full body armour now and are backed up by CO19..
