Palm Beach Pirate In Double Trouble

By on Sep, 2 2016 with Comments 0

Things aren’t so super for “Radio-Super FM” operator Wilmer “Tiwil” Lundi, thanks to his continued operation of two unlicensed FM signals in Palm Beach County, Fla.

The FCC on September 1 fined Mr. Lundi $15,000 for his repeated refusal to shut down his buccaneer broadcasters, ignoring a verbal warning he received some 2 ½ years ago from a Miami-based field agent for one of the unlicensed FMs.

RBR + TVBR OBSERVATION (full text below, for subscribers): Kudos to the FCC’s Miami Office for handing Wilmer Lundi what could be a substantially large fine for his operation of two unlicensed FM signals in South Florida. But, why did it take 2 ½ years for the FCC to do so? Unless there is a legitimate threat to agent safety, confiscation of what it takes to get on the air and possible jail time for the offender may be a more effective way of cleaning up the radio dial just eight miles away from Streamline Publishing’s headquarters.
