Another pirate collared


An FM band buccaneer plying the noncommercial zone in Brooklyn NY has been apprehended by the FCC. Jean Idalbert was working 90.9 MHz without a license, and has been hit with the standard $10K fine. Idalbert did not respond to the FCC’s notice of apparent liability.

RBR/TVBR observation: It’s one thing to fire up an unauthorized FM station. We’re still waiting to see the Blackbeard of broadcast buccaneerdom come along and put a pirate television station on the air. Then we’d really be impressed.
