Pirate rap station interrupts broadcasts in Fla.

LAUDERDALE LAKES, Fla. (AP) - October 9, 2010

On Thursday, authorities found out why: A pirate radio station was using a nearby frequency.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office says the illegal signal came from a Lauderdale Lakes home where an aspiring rapper had attached a laptop, audio mixer and computer to a large antenna.

The station called itself Trap Radio and was using a frequency in between Christian and classical music broadcasts. Listeners called the licensed stations to complain.

Mikhaul Rhodd has been charged with unauthorized transmission or interference with public or commercial radio. He could not immediately be reached for comment.
