FCC forfeiture order against Shawn Deroux for operating on 87.9-FM in NYC

The FCC announced today that it moved a "Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture" to a "Forfeiture Order" against Shawn Deroux for operating a radio station at 87.9-FM in the Bronx without a license.

That means Deroux isn't paying his $10,000 fine, and the FCC is slowly stepping up their efforts to get him to pay. Many Haitian pirates in New York City operate just below the bottom of the dial, which is 88.0-FM on many radios. Some, however, can tune a little below 88, and even pick up 87.7. You can also hear 87.7 "pirates" on your television, on channel six.
