Pirate radio signals in Nederland, Ward go dark in wake of FCC action – The Denver Post

A pair of unlicensed radio stations that for years had broadcast music, community events and more from high in the Boulder County foothills fell silent this week after reporting visits by the Federal Communications Commission.

The operators of Nederland’s KNED 93.1 FMand Ward’s KWHR 90.5 FM each shut down their over-the-air broadcasts Wednesday following what appears to be increased focus by the FCC on pirate radio in Boulder County.

“We are under attack from the FCC,” the broadcasters behind KWHR, known as Way High Radio, declared on their Facebook page.

Neither ever had been visited by the feds before, according to representatives of the two stations, though a predecessor — Radio Free Ned, broadcast out of an accountant’s office — was shut down by the FCC in 2002 after eight years on the air.
