Interesting replies about the story of SW pirates in Ireland in the 80's and 90's. Jock Wilson telling how his Radio Stella station was relayed in Ireland from the same site that relayed Reflections Europe, and there was up to 7 TX in the same site. Long story via a link. Also photos, and comments about the transmitters.

He adds that now, he does not know from where Reflections Europe is transmitted, not even if it's from Ireland.

All that moved to the forum 'Pirate radio history' on this site.
