Are you having trouble getting WBGO on your radio? Pirates may be the cause!
Radio piracy refers to signal interference by an unlicensed(illegal) broadcaster. If you hear what sounds like a different station than WBGO or some sort of interference on 88.3fm in the metro-New York area, there is a chance you're picking up the signal of a pirate radio station.
Only the FCC has the authority to apprehend such broadcasters. WBGO is committed to helping the FCC, and so we're collecting information to help track these illegal broadcasters. Please complete the form below and we will pass the information on to the FCC. Your information is private and will only be shared with the FCC.
WBGO is aware of pirate broadcasters affecting listeners in the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn. Please share specific information about these or other pirate broadcasters below.
And remember, our webstream at wbgo.org
and on our app always has a clear signal!
