I/Q recordings of fm pirates
« on: April 09, 2019, 1713 UTC »
Does anyone want to trade I/Q recordings of FM pirates so I can tune them and imagine iím visiting your cities ? :D

Iíve got hours of i/Q Recordings of a short lived Romanian pirate on 87.5 from somewhere in England
And an Irish pirate from Cork heard during a lift on... you guessed it 87.5!

sadly I accidentally deleted my recordings of a local Polish pirate in which you could actually hear them blow out their amplifier stage!


I can make more recordings as stations pop up

My location allows reception of Pirates in the big cities of Liverpool and Birmingham

Remind me in half a year and I can make a recording of the semi local MW pirate that plays non stop Christmas music.  ;D
