Pirate Radio Stations are on the air in Coeur d' Alene

Note: Inland Northwest Business Watch does NOT condone or endorse the use of pirate radio as it is against the law . The purpose of the post is only to inform.


With start-up companies like Gravity Jack and iShoutout dotting the new business scene in the Spokane and Coeur d' Alene area it is obvious that the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well locally. But also alive is the fear among some of government control, which might explain why Coeur d' Alene is currently home to 2 radio stations broadcasting without radio licences. Those 2 stations are very hard to find info on so I figured i'd share them with the INBW readers. They are...

99.5 fm.... 99.5 is a nameless Coeur d' Alene pirate that airs mostly rock with mixes of some other similar formats. There are no dj's and the station is the stronger of the 2 local pirate radio station with 99.5 being able to be heard in Hayden and most of Post Falls.

100.5 fm... The broadcaster behind 100.5 is obviously using his small radio station to share their beliefs on several conspiracy issues, including the collapse of banks and government corruption. The station is a talk radio station and can be hear most clearly in Downtown Coeur d' Alene but also some signal thru-out the rest of the city limits. Oddly enough though 100.5's broadcaster does have a name which I was able to locate on Google,however since I do not have permission I won't re-post.

While the pirate radio stations in Coeur d' Alene are not official businesses they are an interesting sector of the community and maybe one day one will spur into a new business.
