recorded the last hours of LW transmission from 31 DEC 2022 -> 01 JAN 2023 0h UTC.
Nice AM sound (I'm a nostalgic of AM BC) with some distorsion fading (only at night), I'm located about 200 kms from the TX site
As Ray mentioned, brutal stop of tx transmission at 01.01.2023 at 0h UTC just after the hourly news jingles.

But....checking this morning 01 JAN 2023 @ 10h20 UTC, 234 kHz is back ..... for how long ?

Yes, operating in one of the under used broadcast bands could work very well. 120, 90, 60, 22, 19, 16, 15, 13, and 11 meters all have lots of clear frequencies. 120, 90, 16, 13, and 11 meters are almost completely vacant of stations. I think the 49 meter band is a bit too crowded to pirate on. The pirates I have heard in the 49 meter band all suffered severe interference from legal broadcast stations. I donít think the raided stations were operating on frequencies used by anything else. They both operated in the 43 meter American pirate band. The only legal transmissions I have heard there are MARS stations and the link-11 data on 6945 LSB. The usual 48 meter Europirate band is an HF marine band so it would make sense for a station operating there to get caught for using an emergency channel. In my opinion the 48 meter band is a poor choice for Pirate activity. The last place you want to pirate is on or near safety of life frequencies but many Europirates do. I still have no idea what they could have been interfering with in the 43 meter band though.
I don't know the original post "Comreg Raids against SW stations in Ireland", what station was raided ? what frequency they used ?
Be careful that - in Europe - low band such as 120m, 90m or 60m are not in use by station BC but are in use by digital operators, maritime services etc...
For example 2177 khz & 2187.5 khz  - 120m BC band - have the same usage as 6312 khz.

6387 R3 with deep fading in Apt (south France) - Tecsun S8800 / Telescopic antenna

seems like slavic language.
Maybe this https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,94285.0.html can help ?

S9 solid and stable signal during day time (North West France-Belgian border area) , non stop music - mix of 60's 70' and 80's, ID as Augusta
Also some signal in north of Brussels but nothing in several Netherland sdr

we were testing 6390 this morning.
The "utility noise with carrier" was due to corrupted audio file, no digital tx.
Thanks for report

1437 S7 Lounge Music - slow fading
ID as "Jazz radio" (France), maybe a (pirate ?) relay from the web radio, same music as the web radio "https://www.jazzradio.fr/radio/webradio/5/lounge"

1583 khz is one khz below the right channel 1584
