1670 UK Pirate - Different Radio

I haven't heard this one before.

I recognise the voice of the presenter - Bogusman ?

It was on 1670.042. Faded in just after 19:10, off abruptly at 22:23.

Tim,
Listening to the rest of the broadcast it was definitely him with the trademark delivery and rambling on about anything that came into his head !

I wonder if he’s using a talking house transmitter into an amplifier or just to a decent aerial

My talking house tx not only came preset to 1670 but was 42hz high too!

Audio even sounds a bit like a TH

They’re cheap, (even with import duty) reliable, robust and built to be installed by realtors with no rf experience and left on for years in complete neglect. Automatic atu

I gather from you tube videos that the audio quality can be improved but honestly considering what most people will be listening on it’s not worth the effort

It’ll be home-brew from a well known UK pirate name. No one needs to know more 😎
