Hi there again Folks,
We hope your week went well in all ways.

1998 on 7475 KHz USB.
These tests will last only about 5 minutes - so good luck.
If you know of ANY Free / Pirate station that has a WWW site, please let
us know, so that we can link our site to theirs.
Talking of pirates there would "Appear" to be a small FM pirate

New Zealand unallocated section of the FM band, at 102.90 MHz

DAY OF ACTION - "Micro Radio V's FCC"
We were originally planning a day of action for May 13th. It looks
like we will have to re-schedule that day.
Sorry about the confusion! -Paul Griffin
Defenders of the 1st Amendment,
I have just been notified that my sentencing has been postponed due to
the illness of the prosecutor's mother.
The judge will have to set a new sentencing date and we will have to
until that information is available.
At least this will allow some additional opportunity to organize

FCC RAIDS FM STATION:
*The FCC has shut down a CONNECTICUT pirate station for a third time.
Agents visited La Nueva Radio Musical's latest location, on
Saltonstall Avenue in New Haven, on Wednesday afternoon to pull the
plug on the unlicensed 104.5 MHz operation.
The station's operators tell the New Haven Register they hope to be
back on in a few days, and they say they're disappointed that
Congresswoman Rosa De Lauro hasn't been more responsive to the
petition they presented to her office at a rally last month.
Two Hartford-area pirates remain on the air undisturbed, meanwhile.
Praise 105.3 continues its gospel programming, which NERW first heard
on the air back in 1996, and a Spanish-language station on 97.1 is
still being widely heard as well.
More pirate news: we're hearing about a 1640 signal out of Dorchester
with Haitian music, and a new 89.3 in Chelmsford, "WMBG."
