The term Europirate is used to describe pirate radio stations broadcasting from the UK, Ireland and continental Europe. Europe has a long history of pirates on shortwave, mediumwave and FM.

Europirate activity on shortwave is mostly in the 6 MHz region, particularly 6200 KHz to 6400 KHz. During good conditions, Europirates can often be heard in North America.
