Boston pirate told to pay up


Richard Clouden didn’t respond when the FCC sent him a notice of apparent liability for a $10,000 fine for operating a pirate radio station on 101.3 MHz in Boston. That failure to respond has sealed his fate. The Commission has now ordered Clouden to pay up. Stay tuned to see if he responds to that notice.

Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood has become something of a hotbed for unlicensed radio operations lately. Just last month the FCC proposed to fine one of Clouden’s neighbors for operating a station on 106.1 MHz.
