ELY RADIO, LLC has been fined $11,000 by the FCC for antenna lighting, monitoring, recordkeeping, and notification violations at its antenna for Talk KWNA-A/WINNEMUCCA, NV.
The Commission also reinstated nunc pro tunc and granted a license to cover for THREE EAGLES OF LINCOLN, INC.'s AC KXFT (SUNNY 99.7)/MANSON, IA. The licensee had inadvertently failed to file the application for license to cover before its construction permit expired.
And the Commission denied an appeal of the determination that several construction permits held by GREAT LAKES COMMUNITY BROADCASTING, INC. and GREAT LAKES BROADCAST ACADEMY, INC. had expired by law. The Commission determined that the stations had not been built, or had not been constructed in accordance with their authorizations, before their permits expired. The expired permits held by GREAT LAKES COMMUNITY BROADCASTING included WQLO/LAKE ODESSA, WAAQ/ROGERS HEIGHTS, WJCQ/JACKSON, WJKQ/JACKSON, W220CW/ROGERS HEIGHTS, W206BF/ROGERS HEIGHTS, W207BL/PINNEBOG, W206AZ/FREMONT, and W205BQ/BREVORT. GREAT LAKES BROADCAST ACADEMY held expired permits for WPQZ/MUSKEGON and W211BI/ANN ARBOR.
