Raids Silence Border Pirates

The north-eastern based border pirates were all off the air last night following a raid on Alien Mountain which targeted Magic 105, Energy 106 & Choice 107.7FM. It is thought that the other stations – such as Kiss FM (rebranded as a Country station) & Storm 106.2FM – all went off for precautionary reasons, as Kiss FM & Storm 106.2 were back on air this afternoon. Tonight Magic 105 have also returned despite having most of their equipment taken.

The border pirates are a special breed of stations that broadcast from the more relaxed Republic into Northern Ireland, which falls under the remit of the UK authorities who are less tolerant of unlicensed broadcasts.
