Boxford pirate Waves goodbye
Sun Feb 7 15:12:42 EST 2010

He doesn't care about other violators this guy had a personal vendetta  
against the guy in Boxford. I doubt you will see the same determination with 
the  pirate stations in Boston. I don't see websites devoted to shutting any 
of the  Boston pirates down.
Thanks to Harry Reid and Radio Goldfield the Boxford station may be filing  
a lawsuit to obtain a license. You do it for one you have to do it for all. 
That  is the way the law used to work anyway.

Because he claims to be such an activist, which is  good, I don't see a 
"CONTACT ME" link. We might like to tell him about  other violators, but 
by the USPS. Strange.

Unlicensed operator Wave 87.9, an oldies outlet from  Boxford, is now off 
air though still
broadcasting online Posts on are reporting  that the FCC 
showed up on  Jan.
28  and the operator shut it down

A man in Groveland set  up a site, in which he says 
that after  complaining
about a pirate operation in "Northeastern Mass.", the FCC took  action 
(probably The Wave) The man explains why
pirate radio is simply  illegal but the FCC has been lax in enforcing  it 
we have said  before
though they need to have complaints before they act, especially from  
stations receiving interference,
plus they need to have the resources  available to shut down illegal 

Of course several  pirates in the Boston area continue to operate despite 
being issued  warnings
or fines, for now, but it looks like The Wave has waved goodbye,  at least 

Look, sometimes these pirates may provide  programming unavailable 
but rules need to be followed. I'd hate  to get a call from someone when 
doing my blues show: "Hey, why can't I  pick
up WMWM in Peabody today? I'm hearing religious stuff instead..." and  I 
out it's because a pirate
has set up shop right next to us on  the dial...That isn't  right.
