April 10, 2005 -- "The tower just collapsed, and I got out! Please send somebody!" "Captain Hannon and four D.C. guys are inside . . . They're not out yet!" "United 93, we understand you have a bomb on board . . . American 10-6, we just lost a target on that aircraft."
A Canadian company is reaping a profit from these and other anguished voices as they rang out on 9/11 from the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and United Airlines Flight 93 — and that has survivors and families who lost loved ones in the 2001 terror attacks calling for a federal investigation.
Vancouver's Mailbox Library has packaged emergency radio dispatches into a CD titled "September 11 — 9/11 — Day of Terror!" and is hawking it online for $4.99.
The company boasts that it includes "the final disturbing radio transmissions between Flight 93 and ground control, just before it crashed into the field in Pennsylvania."
You'll also hear "actual NYC and Washington police radio traffic!"
Capt. Ed Hannon of the Arlington, Va., Fire Department — who was trapped in the Pentagon when it collapsed — is furious that a frantic call from a member of his crew is part of the ghoulish soundtrack.
"It's hard to believe someone's making money off this," he told The Post.
Experts say selling the CD may be illegal. "The Federal Communications Act prohibits the sale of intercepted radio transmissions," said David Miranda, chairman of the New York State Bar's Electronic Communications Task Force.
Mailbox Library founder Shawn Jorgensen insisted: "We've stopped selling it. We haven't sold any for a few months."
Not true. On March 17, The Post ordered a copy of the CD. It was delivered a week later — no questions asked.

Hey Ray, this article is bogus. They told WCBS 880 that they hadn't sold the CD in MONTHS!
