Very cool, thanks! Will definitely bookmark these and check them out as time permits.

I think what I was specifically looking for were any DXers who specifically listen for, record, digitize, then actually podcast what they hear (podcast as in via RSS feed). Would be cool to find some and subscribe.

Does anyone know of anyone offering a podcast of pirate radio recordings? Looking for recordings of more recent and/or current pirate radio transmissions, not necessarily historical ones. If so, please post links.

Public safety users don't operate on those frequencies but licensed FM broadcasters do. Legal issues aside with that device finding a vacant frequency to reduce potential interference no matter what power output level you use is good operating practice.

Here is a handy resource that can help identify potential vacant frequencies in your area:


Thanks! That's actually what I used. There is a station 50 miles away on one of the frequencies; should probably avoid that one. The other has a station over 200 miles away. I could hear it fairly clearly in my car, but it does not specifically serve my area. I was also considering 87.7 since we have no channel 6 in the area but there is a community radio station operating at 88.1.

Greetings! Glad to be here. First post. I'm considering purchasing this transmitter from Amazon. Any thoughts/experience/issues/recommendations?


I have identified four potential frequencies in my area that have empty channels on either side. Am leaning toward either 91.1 or 99.9. Question: How do I know if any of these are already being used by any emergency services (EMS, ambulance, etc.)?
