That's bad news if true.

Need to stay clear of 6215, 6265 and 6315.
I don't know how close you can go but I'd stay at least 5 Khz away.

A wake up call for us all  :(

Yes I heard that, raided yesterday. Transmitter was hidden, but everything else was confiscated, including the newspaper he was reading from at the time!

... mmm, if they couldn't find the transmitter/it was remote, it sounds like they already had the studio address and didn't triangulate the signal.  Sounds like a studio raid, not a transmitter site raid.

Anyone any further info on bogusman since 22 dec?
