Thanks so much. It did think it was odd. I searched for other similar "services" but couldn't find none. A possible lawsuit is interesting. I'm sure we'll all be watching.

  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 not 
    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 (as 
    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 to 

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