FCC has seized the equipment of Boston pirate "Datz Hits Rad

Post by The Poet » Thu May 26, 2011 2:12 am

The unlicensed operation - which had been moved since an earlier visit and warning from the FCC - was allegedly interfering with FAA signals at Logan Airport, as well as a licensed FM station in Boston. Federal officials executed the warrant on May 13 and seized the equipment of "Datz Hits Radio" from "a residential building at 25 Outlook Road, in the Mattapan area of Boston." The warrant was unsealed yesterday and made public by the FCC today. The next stage is for a forfeiture action, to permanently take possession of the broadcasting equipment hauled away in the May 13 raid. U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz says "It is easy to take for granted the variety and quality of sound we enjoy in local radio stations. Underlying this is the licensing authority of the FCC, which ultimately ensures that legitimate stations can operate without interference from pirate stations."

"Legitimate " being defined as having enough political or financial clout to muscle your way to the front of the line, as do large commercial outlets and NPR (also a large commercial outfit, come to think of it).

Whack a mole.

Free radio will NEVER stop.
