Sounds like you've got a tri-yard blaster in your neighborhood, Skeezix. You haven't had anyone move into the neighborhood with a blonde wife that's way too pretty for him and van that says "Dale's Dead Bug" on the side have you?

(I couldn't resist, Dale's pirate radio station is probably one of my favorite "King of The Hill" episodes. "All Dale Gribble, All The Time!")

HANK: What is that chinging noise?
DALE: One of those stealth helicopters with computerized noise-cancellation capability. They're still working the chings out.
BILL: How'd you know about the stealth helicopters?
DALE: alt.conspiracy.black.helicopters.
BOOMHAUER: Yeah man, I tell you what, man. That dang ol' Internet, man. You just go on there and point and click. Talk about W-W-dot-W-com. An' lotsa nekkid chicks on there, man. Click. Click. Click. Click. Click. It's real easy, man.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.

I suspect that the KFI relay from this weekend and the previous relays of the "True Oldies Station" are the same one. No proof, however, just casual observation.

While I don't mind the local 1690, do wish they would stick to daytime only so as not to block CHTO from Toronto. I like Greek music.

alt.conspiracy... that's great.

Too bad that USENET can't be broadcast via pirate radio. Doesn't have to be a digital transmission, someone ripping a page off the Teletype and reading it on air.
