Since the board is 'HF' Underground, its debatable whether MF stations should be included at all; However, my feelings on the forums is that the Euro pirates should have their (our) own forum. We are totally distinct from the low power licensed private stations that some countries allow.

I believe there are enough of them to have their own forum, or maybe a sub-forum under a broadcast station main forum.

Pirates should be separate though - our parlous legal state and the situation where many of us cannot or do not maintain regular schedules does, I believe, make us more sought-after for DXers. So it would be disadvantageous for readers to have to sort through a mixed legal and non-legal forum.

Don't agree with anything above.

I think Harmony does have valid points, to be honest

The more specific the page is the better -- I would favor a separate list for European "AM/MW" pirates.

I've yet to see anyone state a clear, logical reason to include private European stations in this forum.

With Stiig's list, it's easy to ID the private stations.  This wasn't always the case.

A few guidelines about posting loggings in this forum are probably in order.  Something like these just for starters:

1.  Pirate stations broadcasting from a commercial or private station's transmitter (Channel 292 or Shortwave Service, for example) shouldn't be reported here.
2.  Pirate stations relayed by other pirate stations should be reported here.

We have a forum where the European low-power private and commercial stations can be reported, leaving this one for pirate stations only.
Pse eQSL to texas1dxer@gmail.com.  Thank you!

Unless otherwise noted, the receiver is my KiwiSDR colocated with W3HFU, Westminster, MD, USA.

'Home" receiver for European low-power radio stations is the SDXF KiwiSDR at Skane, Sweden, unless otherwise noted.

I agree. This should be pirates only.

Small private stations can have their own.
