If his station is audible for more than a few blocks he's a pirate. According to Wikipedia
"(FM) unlicensed broadcasts are limited to a field strength of 250 µV/m at a distance of 3 meters from the antenna. This is equivalent to 0.01 microwatts"
Something like a drive in theatre broadcasting audio on FM; someone using a mini FM transmitter to rebroadcast an mp3 player or XM/Sirius to their car's FM radio; or a nursing home
using "Companion Radio" that reaches a few blocks (such as Blueberry Hill in Beverly,
or Brightview in Danvers) are permissible unlicensed. If you can pick up these stations within
a range of several miles, definitely pirates.
