The FCC has fined two unlicensed radio station operators in FLORIDA.
DAMIAN ANTHONY OJOUKU ALLEN has been hit with a $25,000 fine for operating a pirate station at 101.1 FM in FORT LAUDERDALE. The increased fine was based on ALLEN's alleged repeated violations on the same frequency after being warned.
And MARC-NUS CHARLES was hit with a proposed $20,000 fine for operating a pirate station at 92.5 MHz in POMPANO BEACH.
NY State AM Fined
The FCC has also proposed a $7,000 fine against SOUND COMMUNICATIONS, LLC for failure to lock the gate around the tower of News-Talk WENY-A/ELMIRA-SOUTHPORT, NY. The fence, the FCC agent said, was in good condition and the gate closed, but the padlock was not locked.
FCC Opposes NAB Move To Take TV JSA Standards To Court
And the Commission has moved to dismiss the NAB's appeal seeking judicial review of the FCC's new scrutiny standards for television joint services agreements in the U.S. Court of Appeals in the DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, saying that the appeal is untimely because it seeks review of a public notice that is not a final order and that the NAB must first request review by the Commission.
