Max Headroom was a character from the 80's sci-fi series of the same name; the character gained popularity around the mid-80's. In 1987, a signal hijacker used a Max Headroom mask, along with voice distortion, to hide his identity when he overrode the signals for both WGN-TV and WTTW within the same day.
Not much is known about the "Max Headroom" hijacker; as he was never caught. However, tons of speculation and stories from people claiming to know the man responsible may have provided details about who was actually behind the mask.
- The hijacker was never found.
