Radio Intruder Alert: Illegal Broadcast Transmitters In Church

It isn't everyday that we hear about Churches breaking the law, but churches in Europe are doing just that! It is evident that some churches have self - ordained themselves to be fit commercial radio  broadcasters. With this, comes an enforcement effort and this time, it is both the Amateur Radio community as well as SWL's who are being asked for their help. 

Ger McNamara, EI4GXB, is the Irish Radio Transmitters Society's IARU Intruder Watch  coordinator. Ger is asking anyone with a radio that can tune Ten Meters on 28.030Khz and 28.265 FM.  Anyone who hears these stations is highly encouraged to send Ger an E-Mail at the following address: ei4gxb (at) gmail (dot) com 

Read the entire story at Amateur Radio Newsline, and be sure to scroll down a little bit to see these details under the Enforcement category of the news.

Hmm, might be an interesting test of a church being a sanctuary. Tom
