Pirate Radio Station Map

I have produced these maps to show the approximately relative locations of the Sixties pop pirate radio stations throughout Europe. I would be happy to add others if you send me the necessary information.

The closely-moored pirate radio ships in the North Sea can only be approximated, positionally, due to the scale, but I hope you'll find it an interesting document anyway. Slightly more detailed maps available are:
Thames Estuary Fort Map   Scandinavian Ship Map   Solent Forts (non-radio)               

Please click on the map for a large image of the area indicated or on the station in the key available below to show the relevant map. Also listed below are the various stations that were broadcasting during the Sixties and early Seventies, with some additional information
.
Above right is a typical Radio London QSL card. A QSL is a verification from a radio station that the listener actually heard the station and provided details sufficient to prove reception. This feedback lets the station know how well it was received. Popular and vital for pirate stations.
