Unlicensed stations in New York City

From Tom Roe:

The New York Radio Message Board is where New York City's radio enginners trade gossip, technical information, and reports of "pirate radio." The hipsters with ties to big media may not be running microradio stations anymore, but underserved minorities throughout Brooklyn sure are. Here is a survey of the stations posters on that board have heard:

*90.1-FM, Caribbean pirate.

*96.7-FM, "The Jewish pirate operates during the day, and can be heard as far east as Route 110 in Amityville." Carribean station at night.

*91.9-FM, Hasidic late night/early morning

*91.9-FM, hip-hop 10 p.m.-midnight.

*104.1-FM and 100.9-FM, East New York. Unknown content.

*96.7-FM, "as far east as Levittown."

*99.9-FM, Brooklyn.

*88.7-FM, free103point9 staff have heard this station from Brooklyn to the George Washington Bridge in the evening.

*94.1-FM, Contact FM" out of Queens Village, has, "been gone for a month now, as the restaurant they were broadcasting out of on Jamaica Avenue and 241st Street has closed. He reappeared for two weekends in Cambria Heights."

*101.5, reggae, heard throughout Queens, Bronx, into South Westchester.

*Stations at 90.9-FM, 95.9-FM, and 103.1-FM have all been visited or sent warning letters from the Federal Communications Commission in 2006. The FCC enforces broadcast regulations in the U.S., though lately is only giving out warnings.
