San Diego Pirate Shut Down

San Diego Pirate Shut Down

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.”
