OK, so Piper and I (and Andrew) saw Pirate Radio last night. Overall a good movie with some humor thrown in. The movie was based on a true story of a pirate radio station in 1966 that was playing rock and roll music in the north sea off the coast of the UK. The movie focused mainly on an 18 year old male character who was looking for his real dad and trying to lose his virginity. It didn't really cover a lot of the radio aspect though. If you going into the movie looking for a technical side of radio or even an operational side, forget it. They do show the wire antenna on the mast of the ship several times during the movie. They also refer to the 203 meter band several times where they are transmitting. Like I said overall good movie but not really that much about radio.
