August 17, 2007 at 6:25 AM (PT)
A Haitian pirate FM station is off the air in STUART, FL after an FCC raid on WEDNESDAY morning. An FCC investigator and a detective from the MARTIN COUNTY Sheriff's Dept. arrested HENRY GAY for operating the pirate station on 100.1 FM from a 100 foot tower in the yard of a home just south of STUART.
The pirate signal was interfering with the signal of low power religious WJPP-LP/PALM CITY, FL. GAY has been charged under FLORIDA's anti-pirate radio law and released on $5,000 bond.
