Guy arrested for pirate radio
A 23 year old guy in Wilton Manors (Broward) was arrested last night for running a pirate radio station. His whole operation was running out of the 10th story of an apartment building, on 103.9FM, under the name DJ Kosta.
How did he get caught? Not because the FCC found him, but because his radio station was interfering with another station in Palm Beach. The station called the police to complain, and they roped him. It’s strange that the police would do the arresting, considering it’s not their business. One commenter on the Miami Herald site goes on to say that it will probably be tossed out of court for just that reason, but I’m no lawyer. Just goes to show that if you ever plan on doing something like this you should make sure that you don’t broadcast too close to any other stations.
