This might sound like a facetious question but I'm truly curious to
hear your thoughts, BRI.

Seeing as pirates / unlicensed broadcasters aren't going anywhere,
would it be useful to make a reference website to help them prevent
these issues?

Has anyone gotten in touch with these stations regarding their
technical problems in hopes of correcting them?

As usual, it is overmodulated and has a very unstable stereo signal.  I'm sure CBS would love to see this happening to their signal from Boston.  This recent spate of pirate activity astounds truly me.  The pirates of the 1980's (much as they were illegal) at least took an effort to make sure that no other stations would be interfered with. They all seemed to had some technical sense of putting a quality Stereo signal on the air without ruining another station's signal.
