More Crackdowns on Pirate Radio Operations

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is continuing its aggressive enforcement efforts to restrict unlicensed radio operations and illegal pirate radio broadcasts.

On July 18th, the FCC’s Region One Enforcement Bureau issued five separate notices to individuals linked to illegal pirate radio broadcasting in the greater New York metro area. Each of the recipients was notified of their potential liability for financial penalties of up to $2 million for continuing their illegal broadcasting operations and instructed to confirm with the FCC that such broadcasting activities had ceased.

The recent wave of new notices issued by the Region One Enforcement Bureau follows the issuance by the Enforcement Bureau of three separate notices on June 9th, also targeting illegal broadcasting activities in the New York metro area.
