Potential Pirate
We have recently been contacted by a person who asked for help in setting up a transceiver but was unable to provide a callsign. Please remember that your own licence may be at risk if you “aid and abet” a radio pirate and that the penalty for operating a licensable radio transmitter without the necessary licence could be an unlimited fine and two years in jail.
