FCC Continues Pursuit of Pirate Radio Broadcasters

The Enforcement Bureau of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has recently issued a new round of Notices to individuals linked to illegal pirate radio broadcasting.

On September 9th, officials at Region One of the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau issued Notices to four separate parties, three based in the New York Metro area and a fourth located in Battle Creek, MI. In each case, the named parties were identified as owners of buildings or other properties determined to be a source of radio operations for which no FCC license had been issued.

The Notices served to each recipient warn them of their potential liability for financial penalties of up to $2 million if they fail to immediately cease the illegal broadcasting operations. The recipients were further instructed to confirm with the FCC that such illegal operations have been discontinued.

This latest action brings to 15 the number of Notices issued by the Enforcement Bureau in just the last 100 days in connection with illegal radio broadcasting activities.
