CHRISTOPHER M. MYERS has been fined $10,000 by the FCC for operating a pirate FM station in LAUDERHILL, FL.
The Commission also denied a petition by SIMPLY LIVING, licensee of low-power WCRS-LP/COLUMBUS, OH, of the Commission's reissuing of its license with a time-sharing restriction to 3-8p (ET) and a request for waiver of the rules requiring a written time-sharing agreement between it and another operator, BEXLEY PUBLIC RADIO FOUNDATION (WCRX-LP/COLUMBUS).
And the Commission dismissed 58 applications for noncommercial reserved band FM new station and major modification applications for failure to timely file complete Form 340s or amendments and instead filing new and major change applications on paper with a waiver request after the OCTOBER 2007 filing window closed. The petitions claimed that technical problems with the Commission's CDBS electronic filing system prevented them from filing online in a timely manner.
