Comreg Activity Regarding Pirate Radio

Post by drumandbasshead010 » Thu Aug 24, 2017 6:43 pm

Wasn't sure which forum on which to post this, but for those interested this seems to make up the activity of Comreg between 2013 and 2017.
July 2013: NRG 88.1FM, Dublin, raided
December 2013: Play FM 93.2 and Tonik Radio 107.1, Dublin, raided
October 2014: Galaxy92FM 92.2FM, Kildare, raided
October 2016: Rince Radio 88.1FM, Dublin, raided, no TX taken
They've been seen at several station's sites in the meantime, most recently Klub FM Cork in February.

Some decent stations on that list when they were on. NRG fm and play fm, even if the music wasn't quite to my taste. tonik was a good little station as well especially in the earlier years.
Did you get this information from a source and can you post the link? Or just from memory?

The majority of it comes from early posts on the thread that you indicated we both use as a source for the band scans and such. I have been reading it since the early days so could recall certain dates from memory, and went back to those posts to confirm them. There might be more posted there that I somehow missed, and some other activity that the people on that thread did not catch, but that's all I could find or think of. Of the stations that you mentioned, Play closed down after the raid I wrote about in the original post. NRG came back on air and closed in 2015. Tonik did not shut down until early 2016. Both Play and Tonik went online only for a while after they ceased FM transmissions but didn't last long.

To add to that list is Connect 101.2FM, Dublin, which was taken off air on Friday 13th October 2017.
