Pirate Letters Sent to More Property Owners

FCC responds to complaints in Maryland and Pennsylvania

The Federal Communications Commission has sent more letters to landlords and property owners about alleged pirate radio activity.

Charles Baker of Adamstown, Md., received a letter about an unlicensed FM station on frequency 90.3 MHz. Adamstown is near Frederick, Md., an outlying suburb of Washington, D.C.

Tammy Jones of Kittanning, Pa., got one about a signal on 87.9 in that community, which is northeast of Pittsburgh.

Like other recent letters that the Enforcement Bureau has sent, these inform the recipients that owners of properties found to harbor radio pirates could face financial penalties of more than $2 million.
