Iran Cracks Down On Dishes Again
  TEHRAN, Iran, 96/11/26 (TS) -- Reports from the Iranian capital or Iran
say the government is once again cracking down on illegal satellite dishes.
The recent move, which follows similar offensives last year, is apparently
related to a new radio broadcast on the Voice of America (VOA).

  VOA has just started a new call in show featuring Iranian pop music and
chat, something impossible to find on state radio, and people have been
turning to satellite feeds of the radio station to sidestep jamming on an
AM radio frequency.

  Iran banned satellite dishes last year.
