Scott Fybush reports that when a new pirate radio station went on the air last month, it promptly got a visit from FCC investigators, because its 97.5 frequency is right next to the frequency used by a legal station, Brockton's WKAF, at 97.7, which repeats the signal of WAAF.
Fybush reports the illegal station's offices are in the Westinghouse Plaza office park. The Bulletin - also located there - recently profiled the station.
The FCC visit apparently had as much effects as similar visits - and fines - have had on the similar Touch FM in Dorchester: None. As I type this, Hot FM is coming in just fine, in stereo, here in Roslindale (on the Hyde Park line, maybe a couple miles as the crow flies from Westinghouse Plaza). The WAAF repeater is also coming in fine, a notch up the dial.
