FCC Warns Unlicensed Omaha AM
April 16, 2010 at 4:26 AM (PT)
The FCC has issued a "Notice of Unlicensed Operation" to SEAN MURTA of OMAHA for running an alleged pirate station on 1640 AM. The letter says that FCC agents used direction-finding techniques to locate the station at MURTA's house on MARCH 24th.
The station, "LIBERTY 1640," has a website that touts signals in SIOUX FALLS and ABERDEEN, SD as well as OMAHA, using what it claims are 10 100-milliwatt Part 15 AM transmitters.
