Irish Catholic Priests Endanger Airline Flights with Mass Broadcasts


Irish Catholic priests have been transmitting Mass on illegal radio stations so that their housebound parishioners can participate. The transatlantic airline flights that pass overhead have been getting interference.

Irish communications regulator ComReg has cracked down on three Catholic churches in central Ireland to warn them that their unlicensed transmissions might be creating problems for the airliners.

"I knew it was sort of a gray area but I didn't know we were breaking the law," said Father Brendan Quinlan. The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) said that pilots have complained for more than a year of hearing static on their radios.
