WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In regards to an Enforcement Advisory and letter the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) distributed to various organizational bodies regarding unauthorized broadcast operations, or pirate radio operations, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:
