** It wasn't just Britain - several north European countries had were targeted by pirate radio ships, as were Israel and even New Zealand. A couple of attempts were made off the USA, both rapidly silenced. Offshore piracy wasn't just in the 60s either - it began with Denmark's Radio Mercur in 1958, and didn't end until Radio Caroline made its last pirate broadcast in 1990 before going legit. Offshore broadcasting is now illegal just about everywhere, and countries have brought in even stiffer penalties for anyone who tries it. There are still one or two stations, however, that broadcast from ships ''legally'' in an attempt to recapture the spirit of the pirates.
