New Jersey-based Christian station fights Brooklyn 'pirate' with postcard

New Jersey Christian radio station WAWZ (99.1-FM) recently mailed a postcard to listeners asking them to help fight the Carribean "pirate" radio stations in Brooklyn that are also using the 99.1-FM frequency. "We Need Your Help!," the station's web site says. "It has come to our attention that someone is broadcasting a different format illegally on the same frequency as STAR 99.1 FM. Your immediate response and cooperation are needed to help us resolve this issue, so that you can once again enjoy the family friendly programming of STAR 99.1." Legal New Haven-based WPLR also interferes with the Zarephath, New Jersey-based WAWZ's reception in New York City.
