MANHATTAN (AP) – Federal officials are investigating a pirate radio station in Manhattan.

Ron Ramage (RAM’-ihg), district director of the FCC office in Kansas City says investigators were in Manhattan Thursday to investigate the station after receiving complaints from citizens.

The station was operating under the 88.3 frequency on the FM dial and was broadcasting an anti-government program, with mention of alleged national and global conspiracies.

The investigation continues.

Ramage wouldn’t comment on what a possible penalty would be.
