Federal agents from the U.S. Marshal's service and the FCC shut down a pirate station in San Diego late last week. Agents seized amplifiers, computers and climbed on the roof of a house next to the wooden shack that served as the station to dismantle the 43-foot-tall antenna, reported the San Diego Union.
"Free Radio 96.9" allegedly had broadcast illegally for three years out of a house and also streamed its signal on the Internet at www.pirate969.org.
On the station Web site, the pirates state: "No one was arrested, all of our spare equipment is intact, and we have absolutely no plans to pack up and go home. ... If anyone has any money that they'd like to contribute, we lost roughly $3,000 worth of equipment, and need to replace it."
