FM Talk Radio Station Frequency Hijacked by Pirate in Warren, MA

via Worcester MA Telegram & Gazette:

WARREN — As the hosts talk about sports on WEEI-FM 105.5, their signal fades, breaks up and a bit of static overrides their voices when drivers reach downtown Warren.

Then, another voice slips in, “Don’t be a chump, vote for Trump.” There is a pause before it repeats in a whisper, “Don’t be a chump, vote for Trump.”

“At first I thought someone was just broadcasting close to the frequency,” Chief Gerald Millette said. “I drove around and it starts by Pine and Nelson (streets) and it goes all the way downtown.”

Central MA Amateur Radio Association President Brian Loverro, K1BML, is quoted in the article.
