FCC Issues Notice of Violation for Vista Pirate on 93.7 FM

The FCC issued a Notice of Violation after the Los Angeles office investigated a complaint of an illegal radio station on 93.7 MHz in the Vista, CA area. They used direction-finding techniques to locate an alleged pirate FM operation at the home of Lyle E Hilden, ham radio licensee KD6LUL. ¬†An interesting twist on this violation was the tie-in with his ham license, with the NAL noting “The license for amateur radio station KD6LUL does not authorize operation on the broadcast frequency 93.7 MHz.”
