WHYP is a prolific and popular pirate radio operator active in the late 1990s and early 2000s. WHYP is named in tribute to a unique local AM/FM station in North East, Pennsylvania that operated in the early to mid 1980s. WHYP is hosted by James Brownyard and is also known as the "James Brownyard Memorial Station."

WHYP has been largely dormant since 2005, although the operator makes occasional appearances on the FRN forums.

WHYP did make a transmission on 6875 AM on October 3, 2007, and JB says he hopes to be more active again in the next month or two.

WHYP has returned to the air! Heard again Christmas 2009.

Update December 2010: WHYP is active again, having been heard broadcasting on 6875 KHz.
