FM pirates

Forwarded from another list:

102.1 WRCI Radio Continental/Power FM appears to be off the air.  It 
hasn't been heard over the past four days.  The other major pirates are 
still going strong though; 91.3 Bel Mizik FM, 96.5 Boston, 102.9 WCFM 
Choice FM, and 106.1 WTCH-LP Touch FM.  91.3 Bel Mizik FM has a super 
signal, although suffering interference from 91.5 WMFO Medford along 
I-93 from the deck to Roosevelt Circle, the signal reaches as far north 
as Andover/Tewksbury on I-93 at Dascomb Road before 91.5 WUML starts to 
interfere.  In contrast, the 2 kW signal of 102.9 Choice FM gets killed 
by co-channel WBLM north of Wilmington.  88.5 is a pirate graveyard, 
with the Boston Caribbean/Haitian station, Middle Eastern (presumed 
R.Free Cambridge), and "Off-Coast" rock all heard this week, plus the 
occasional satellite radio FM modulator.  96.5 seems to be making a run 
at capturing some of the 102.9 Choice FM listenership in the afternoon, 
broadcasting a high-energy soca club mix with frequent "Ocean Sounds" 
promos.  102.9 Choice FM has the popular "Soca Bash" weekday 
afternoons, a high-energy soca music program featuring mixes by 
"Digital Seduction" and a very entertaining hyper DJ.
