Pirate Radio

Pirate radio is a radio station that broadcasts without a valid license. Pirate radio stations are often clandestine in nature. In some cases, radio stations are considered legal where the signal is transmitted, but illegal where the signals are received—especially when the signals cross a national boundary. Pirate radio is sometimes called bootleg radio (a term especially associated with two-way radio), clandestine radio (associated with heavily politically motivated operations), or free radio.
