Pirate radio stations are unlicensed broadcasters. Most are run by hobbyists purely for fun, although some have political or other agendas. Most pirates transmit using SSB with modern ham radio equipment, others use AM utilizing vintage or homebrew equipment. It has become more common for pirates to transmit images using SSTV. A few have experimented with FM or digital modes like RTTY, PSK31 and HELL as well as plain CW.

There is a wide range of programming styles. Some pirates mostly play music, others produce their own radio dramas. There are quite a few inside jokes contained in programs, due to the close-knit community of operators and listeners. These include things such as the Rodent Revolution, checking one's Tire Pressure, and so on.

Most communication with the operators of pirate stations is done via a maildrop or by email. A detailed list of pirate radio station email addresses is available.
