Pirate FM Shut For Interfering With Logan Airport

The BOSTON GLOBE is reporting on pirate radio activity that caused interference to air traffic control communications at BOSTON's LOGAN AIRPORT.
Records unsealed last week indicated that a pirate FM in BROCKTON was causing the interference and that the FCC sent an agent to investigate; after a few days of inactivity, when the station came back on the air on JUNE 21, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the district obtained a court order to seize the station's antenna, transmitter, and other equipment. The GLOBE says that while NATACHA and CEDOR SOUFFRANT were not specifically named in the court records as operators of the station, they were the individuals informed of their right to challenge the seizure.
