New York Broadcasters find scores of pirates.



The New York State Broadcasters Association has conducted an engineering study and found that 76 stations are operating in the New York Metropolitan Area without an FCC license. The study pointed out the ways that pirate radio stations can do damage, including interference to the EAS system, interference to frequencies used by the FAA, and the failure to comply with RF radiation rules established for licensed broadcast stations. According to NYSBA President David Donovan, “Like our previous studies, the new study provides compelling evidence that the FCC needs to address this problem.”
