The Irish pirate radio archive Pirate.ie has today launched a new series on the history of Irish pirate stations located in Counties Louth and Meath in the northeast. Many of these stations such as Radio Carousel and Boyneside Radio were received by DXers in the UK. The Louth stations in particular were important because they deliberately beamed their signals at the Northern Ireland market at a time when broadcasting laws were much more lax in the Republic, with some transmitters located just south of the border. The series can be followed at https://pirate.ie/archive/.
