Illegal Broadcasting | Ofcom

Illegal Broadcasting | Ofcom

Ofcom has published a report into illegal broadcasting in the UK (i.e. pirate radio stations).

Though Ofcom have to fight illegal broadcasting, they do have some interesting reports of activities in London specifically and have independently interviewed both listeners and broadcasters - who feel there is a need for pirate stations.

The annex of this report makes interesting reading - it shows that Ofcom's general readership don't understand modern terms at all :)
