Here are some archive recording from the days of our field Transmissions from a lonely hill side.
Just before the station became Legal in 2002 we were testing our 180 watt TX from the UK, and after the 31st of March 2002 all
Pirate Transmissions were stopped.
EMR started Pirate Transmissions in 1976 with very low power tests on 6250 KHz, these tests continued until November 1976.
Full power Transmissions were started on the 12th of December 1976 with 50 watts of power at 11.45 UTC on 6250 KHz.
The above photos will give you a good idea of what it looked like on location with the very small amount of equipment in the 1970s
