Pirate radio stations are popping up all over the radio dial. Broadcasters say the illegal operations interfere with their frequencies, cut into their profits and irritate listeners. The problem is especially bad in Florida. Nationwide the Federal Communications Commission shut down more than 200 unlicensed stations in 2003. Now Florida has a new tool to crack down on the people operating them. As WGCU’s Amy Tardif reports, pirating a radio signal is now a felony in Florida.
