IRISH PIRATES A / Z
South Dublin Community Radio were heard on the recordings below made in May 1984 on 102.1MHz FM and were also announcing 927kHz AM / 324 metres. They operated from the Dún Laoghaire area of County Dublin. There was a station called South Dublin Radio on 102MHz in frequency lists for July 1983 which suggests that SDCR was operating at that point. SDCR were logged on 102.1MHz with this slightly altered name from October 1983. In March 1984 the station announced they were moving from 102.1MHz due to severe issues caused by RTE jamming of Radio Nova and Sunshine Radio which made the range 101.5MHz to 102.7MHz impossible to use. They moved much further down the band to 90.6MHz, but then RTE began using 90.7MHz and soon after this SDCR was not heard again. Apparently the same location was used in later years for DLR106 and Hits 106.

|Saturday evening 5th May 1984 with Eddie Hughes which includes the gig guide at 7pm. John follows Eddie Hughes at 8pm with some old rock 'n'roll music. Recorded in Dublin from 102.1MHz in mono. One thing of interest on these two recordings, is the occasional use of a Q102 jingle. This would be 8 months before the launch of the super pirate Q102.
