YO HO HO Bahamas Pirate Miami TV Programs By DICK KLEINER Newspaper Enterprise Atiociallon Centuries ago, the waters around (he Bahama Islands were the lair of pirates. If you happen to visit Nassau, you'll f i n d that there still are pirates around -- only these are on dry land. The Bahamas have no TV station. Yet, you'll see h u n - dreds of TV antennas on homes--tall, 50-foot antennas for the most part. The islanders are pirating signals from Miami, Fla. They can get good reception usually, although there are days and nights when the atmospheric conditions are such that all they get is a screenful of snow and ghosts. Sets are expensive and so, of course, is the i n s t a l l a t i o n of the tall antennas necessary to pull in the pictures. So ownership is restricted to Bahamians w i t h the highest incomes--but there are" plenty of those. There is talk, around Nassau, of b u i l d i n g a c o m m u n i t y a n t e n n a to pull in the s i g n a l s from Florida. The legality of t h a t is an interesting p o i n t . Eventually, the B a h a m i a n s hope to have their own s t a - tion, but m e a n w h i l e they have reverted to their piratical past. Yo ho ho and a word from our sponsor.
