Lubbock Stations Cited By FCC For Interference With Airport
April 21, 2010 at 5:08 AM (PT)
The FCC has sent notices of violation to three LUBBOCK radio stations for "spurious signals" that could interfere with LUBBOCK PRESTON SMITH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT's instrument landing system.
The LUBBOCK AVALANCHE-JOURNAL reports that WILKS BROADCASTING Country KLLL, Classic Rock KONE (ROCK 101.1) and Hot AC KMMX (MIX 100) were cited for problems noted by agents on FEBRUARY 24th and 25th. The problems were corrected the same day, but a notice was sent out by the FCC on APRIL 14th, asking for the stations to explain how the problems occurred, how they were fixed, and what the stations will do to prevent a recurrence.
The FCC's investigation was prompted by Rep. RANDY NEUGEBAUER (R-TX), who complained to the Commission on behalf of the airport.
