Hey, enforcing broadcasting monopolies is serious business. We can't just let people go all pump up the volume without expecting the full weight of the police state to fall on them.

It's not like they were responding to an emergency or a crime in progress. Is it so hard to call animal control to corral the dog while you wait to bust a pirate radio station? There better not have been a single violent crime in that city that day.

Damn right that is a crime. It is bad enough that the entire north side of the Baylor campus vibrates from the massive speakers that play rap music for the football team's practice. That should be a crime as well.

dude there is a reason you need an FCC license to broadcast. its not a monopoly. the FCC license isnt even that much money. they need to control the airwaves because there is only so much bandwidth. and if you dont know what you are doing you can interfere with air traffic control and radar. and if you have too powerful of a signal the sideband splatter screws up other radio stations and emergency channels. so yeah this kind of thing can be a serious crime. this guy may have just been a douche. but if you were trying to do harm you could take over a radio frequency and send out false information and make people panic.

How do you think radio frequencies should be allocated if not through government enforced monopolies? If you let anyone who wants broadcast on them radio would be pretty unusable in most populated areas.
 
2012-08-10 12:07:56 PM
Who listens to classical music on the radio anymore, anyway? Most of the stations around LA that used to play classical now are round-the-clock NPR shows or eclectic rock (the Cal State Northridge station has quite a playlist.)

The article doesn't make it sound like it was his dog. He wasn't even at the warehouse and the dog "charged" at them before they even entered the building. Unless you read another source they make it sound like it was either a stray or guard dog

And after Radio NewYork International, the FCC declared that if you get convicted of being a pirate radio operator, you cannot ever be licensed to work on the public airwaves. Ever.

Want to deejay without a license to broadcast? Do it in a club. Either that or get a low power FM license and be the neighborhood deejay.

But stepping on a legitimate license holder to transmit your rap?

No radiotelephone operator license for you. Not yours.

Pirate Radio 101: Do not trample on someone's frequency. It's like setting off alarm that says "Please, come arrest me!" Sitting adjacent-channel to a 100kW station is the same thing.

I'm usually sympathetic to pirates who aren't causing any real interference, but when they start messing with licensed stations you can count the days. It's why everyone hangs out on 87.9, 87.7, or 1710 AM to do these things.

I have a feeling it was a military sat uplink operator that did it. The FCC had gone around to everyone and anyone in the commercial broadcast industry and looked at logs and all that, and found nothing. Not even a hint or someone smirking. The only people with enough transmitter wattage to pull it off otherwise were military.

Anyone like to explain just how he manged to do this with FM? Maybe if he picked exactly 89.7, but that seems odd (pirate radio rarely has the power to spread far enough that government certified radio will vary in power levels).

Stations with FCC monopolies have pulled this thing before, claiming all sorts of audibly recognisable sounds as "interference" with impossible modulation.

Amen.

Los Angeles had a fantastic commercial classical channel. It was sold to a company that promptly turned it into an 'urban' station, just like the 20 or so others that serve LA. It's been sold & resold several times since then, and always to an underserved genre like Urban. Because Lord knows they'll play something other than what every other Urban station in LA plays.

Well, it's a monopoly in that in the vast majority of the country there are no more broadcast licenses available.

Given that this was in a major city, it's a virtual certainty that he couldn't have gotten a license.

This is completely unrelated but the other night I found a French stream for the Giants@Cards game. Whoever was streaming it took the French game commentary and interspersed it with altering beats and samples here and there through the whole game. It was kind of surreal, but honestly pretty cool. Better than just French commentary, anyway.

If a station is that low on the dial, its probably non-profit.

ok. there is only so much bandwidth bro. its not a monopoly. it is a service that HAS to be regulated. or else nobody would be able to use it. now i do disagree with some of the FCC rules and what not but that is a diff story. if you have an NFL game the owner doesnt have a monopoly on the seating. there are only so many seats. if they are all taken then i guess you are shiat out of luck. and i doubt "vast majority" is an accurate assessment. there are plenty of radio station freqs left in cities here in NY. yeah maybe the ridiculously huge cities. but i say screw em. big cities are death traps. i dont feel sorry for anyone living in one. and you can easily get an AM station. but they are getting rid of that soon.

Wow, I tried to report a pirate radio in my neighborhood that was blocking not one but several stations across the dial. I was told that they needed a complaint from the blocked stations themselves before they could do anything.

I guess they do things differently in Broward county.

Certainly not. The police should have unholstered their side arms and left them in the car. Then when the nice little dog walked up to them they should have patted it on the head and said "good boy". Then they should have knocked politely on the door and waited until the criminal opened it. Just because the criminal invested several thousand dollars in his enterprise doesn't mean he'd mind seeing it get dismantled.

Or call animal control and wait 20 minutes for them to get control of the dog in a non lethal manner.
