The FCC upholds its $16,800 fine against 127 INC. for main studio, power limit, and public file violations at its Travel Information-Talk-Comedy KLFJ-A/SPRINGFIELD, MO. The Commission says that the station's phone calls went unanswered, that the executive assistant to the station’s owner said that the phone and the public file were at the SPRINGFIELD ECONOLODGE, that the motel staff was unaware of any public file at the motel, that the phone had been unplugged, and that the "studio" consisted of computers being fed by phone line from WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA.
The Commission also affirmed the fine of JOSE A. MOLLINEDO for operating a pirate station on 90.9 FM in VICTORVILLE, CA but reduced the fine from $10,000 to $500 due to inability to pay.
And the FCC continued to issue Notices of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for failure to timely file license renewal applications, with $1,500 notices going out to LITTLE MIAMI LOCAL SCHOOLS (WLMH/MORROW, OH), MELODYNAMIC BROADCASTING CORPORATION (WCER-A/CANTON, OH), and OBERLIN COLLEGE STUDENT NETWORK INC. (WOBC/OBERLIN, OH) and $7,000 notices going to ADRIAN COLLEGE (WVAC/ADRIAN, MI), GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH (WBLW/GAYLORD, MI), and RAVEN RIDGE MINISTRIES INC. (W221AR/COSHOCTON, OH).
