Is it illegal?

Is it illegal to broadcast a real FM radio station in my area with my FM tuner into shoutcast? I don't plan on making any money or anything, just want to provide users with FM radio stations in my area (Vancouver, British Columbia).

Thanks in advance.

That would be illegal in the USA. Can't say about Canadian laws. Check with the station.

Illegal in France as well.
I think that it's the case in most of the world country... maybe not in Africa. Not sure tough.

hello

the only way you can have a fm station legal is by being part 15 of the fcc rules & regulation. you do not want to get shut down by the fcc.and trust me i had two fm radio stations and both shut down by fcc.stay legal and go part 15 or even maybe 1 watt.
