Pirate FM

Panic Stations for Dublin’s Pirates

Pirate FM, who have been on the air on FM in Dublin since January 1st, are presently off the air following a phone call on Sunday advising them that a raid was imminent. This led the station to strip out their studios.

Word spread to the rest of Dublin’s unlicensed stations by Monday leading them to cease FM broadcasts.

Some, like Club FM who are usually on 107.1MHz and Easy FM, who are usually on 105.2MHz have publicly stated that this is to facilitate ‘technical adjustments’.
One operator told Radiowaves News, however, that they were off FM for precautionary reasons.

Many continue to broadcast online.
