The FCC has issued a $6,400 fine to BLACK CROW BROADCASTING, licensee of Talk WNDB-A/DAYTONA BEACH, for interfering with other stations and for tower fencing violations.
The station, which operates at 1150 AM, was found to be interfering with stations at 1070 and 1230 AM and causing general interference up and down the AM band. BLACK CROW paid $12,000 in fines for other violations but requested cancellation or reduction of the interference and tower fencing fines, which were originally set at $11,000; the Commission granted a reduction to $6,400 based on a history of compliance.
