There are also pirates at 90.9 and 91.3 (Haitian Kreyol, I think) somewhere around Elizabeth or southern Newark, and those cause problems too. But I'm not as familiar with those.

I wish. The FCC is seriously understaffed. They catch a few pirates here and there occasionally but there are so so many of them. On any given evening, you can hear about 30 pirates just in Flatbush.

@Dave in the '90's in Sacramento CA a group drove around in a mini van with mobile art exhibit wherever they pulled over, called, "Art Van Go" Pretty clever, however, they had to explain the pun everytime. doogh!

speaking of pirates, when i lived in bedstuy i would occasionally, through my speakers (NOT radio) pick up some dude who was in a truck down the street communicating through ham radio or something. was bizarre, funny and sometimes moderately annoying!

i also have a little box that you connect to a scanner that shifts the frequency so you can get cell phone frequencies, around 800 mhz where they used to be. the thing is worthless today.
