The FCC has fined FELLOWSHIPWORLD, INC. $8,000 for operating now-defunct noncommercial WFWO/MEDINA, NY from an unauthorized location.
After a complaint was filed with the FCC, an agent found that the station was operating from a transmitter site in BUFFALO 36 miles from the authorized location. The station admitted the violation but asked for a reduction of the fine due to inability to pay, but the Commission noted that "took no action to address its unauthorized operations until after it was notified of the violation, resumed operations from the unauthorized location after it received a written warning from the Enforcement Bureau, and failed to provide any documentation supporting its inability to pay claim."
