Most news about FCC actions against free radio begins as rumors. The Enforcement Action Database is an attempt to separate fact from fiction. It's also a study-in-progress of the FCC's patterns of enforcement.

Information in this kind of thing is traditionally sketchy; if you can fill any holes or have updated information, please don't hesitate to contact me.
