URGENT UPDATE: ATTEND HACKER RADIO SHOW “OFF THE HOOK” POSSIBLE LAST BROADCAST
On the morning of October 7, 2019, staffers at WBAI in New York were locked out and all programming suspended. According to the Pacifica Foundation (parent of WBAI), this was done due to “serious and persistent financial losses at WBAI.” This necessitated the foundation laying off all the staff.
As of Tuesday, October 8, an injunction has been granted that allows WBAI to resume operations. We now expect “Off The Hook” to air in its normal timeslot this Wednesday.

This is alarming and saddening for DEFCON 201 Staff. One of our first experiences (outside of BBS) with the hacker community at large was the 2600 Magazine and Off The Hook broadcasts. Our Co-Founders are also long time attendees of the NYC 2600 Meet Up that the 2600 Staff organizes and it was those meet ups that inspired the creation of DEFCON 201.
For anyone brave enough to use NJ Transit into Manhattan, PLEASE come join us for their live “Off the Hook” this Wednesday (October 9th) evening at 7:00 PM. It’s short notice, but a show of numbers and support is desperately needed.
