Mr William Rickarby, prosecuting, said pirate radio stations could cause danger to life and that PCRL, which was aimed at the black community, had been responsible for 'swamping' on occasions West Midlands Fire Service radio communications.
Morris said that he had been a founder of PCRL which started in 1985 and for about ten years he had helped run it.
In 1994, he said he was convicted of offences involving PCRL and realised that if he wanted to get a licence for the station he had to disassociate himself from it.
Mr Rickarby said in this case there was evidence that broadcasts from PCRL had, on one occasion, led to fire services covering the south and west of Birmingham up to Wolverhampton not being able to use their radio communications.
He said PCRL, which was aimed at the black community, had been broadcasting illegally since 1985.
He alleged that Morris, who was connected with two properties in Dudley Road, Winson Green, where the station was broadcasting from, was a prime mover in the operation of PCRL.
