North Coast radio operated from Merseyside on 1350kHz medium wave during the late 1980's and just into the 1990's. The transmissions could be heard over much of the North West of England. NCR were one of the few pirate stations on MW in the UK to make it into the 1990's, as by then most operators had opted for FM.
