 posting to a pirate radio newsgroup, the station's owner says he was
 running just half a watt -- and notes that the visit came just a few
 days after his station was mentioned here in NERW.  The station
 remains on the air, reportedly running just a tenth of a watt for the
 moment. >>

NERW performs a public service by knocking criminals off the air!  I wonder if
the FCC is now a subscriber.

By the way, the pirate mentioned was playing all 1980's pop and new wave.  I
think another religous translator would have been better.  :-)
