Consolidation comes to piracy


We suppose it had to happen. Emile Marcel of East Orange NJ has been caught running unlicensed FM operations on not one but two frequencies. According to the FCC, Emile was operating on both 96.7 MHz and 104.7 MHz in this community in the shadow of New York City. The FCC says the buccaneer has not responded to notice of apparent liability, so has upgraded it to a forfeiture order worth 10K.

RBR observation: We suspect the FCC, if it had wanted, could have considered this a double violation and upped the ante to 20K as well. Marcel may actually be getting off easy.
