Lauderdale Lakes, Florida (AP) --
Listeners of two South Florida radio stations got a surprise when their Christian and classical music was interrupted with rap and profane language.
On Thursday, Oct. 7 authorities found out why: A pirate station was
using a nearby frequency.
The Broward County Sheriff's Office says the illegal signal came
from a Lauderdale Lakes home where an aspiring rapper had attached
a laptop, audio mixer and computer to a large antenna.
The station called itself Trap Radio and was using a frequency
in between Christian and classical music broadcasts. Listeners
called the licensed stations to complain.
Mikhaul Rhodd has been charged with unauthorized transmission or
interference with public or commercial radio. He could not
immediately be reached for comment.
