With modern technology, it has become a lot easier to track down these transmissions... but at the same time easier for the pirates to bounce signals off of something specific, or keep it mobile, never transmitting from the same place for more than an hour or two (in North America). In Europe things are bad enough, it takes their governments a decade just to decide to go about how to catch someone, and by then they've moved on to something else.

Follow the money...

There's very little of it in domestic shortwave.

Interfere with an ESPN affiliate on FM, however...  Tongue
