KATHERINE TIMMERMAN HAGLER has been hit with a proposed $1,000 fine by the FCC for late license renewal applications and unauthorized operation of FM translators W285AJ and W296AI/MONTGOMERY, AL. HAGLER told the Commission that she thought her spouse had filed the applications on time, then had problems filing electronically when notified of the failure.
The Commission also denied five informal objections to the license to cover application and minor modification applications of SPIRIT OF ALASKA BROADCASTING for KMBQ-A/WASILLA, AK. BONNYE L. MATTHEWS filed four objections based on the Commission's RF radiation limits being, in her opinion, inadequate and added, according to the Commission, that "her abnormal brain waves are so sensitive to RF radiation that prolonged exposure to the radio tower could make her unable to function physically or mentally"; another objection from DREW LAY and KARAE MOORE agrees with MATTHEWS' objection. SPIRIT OF ALASKA has been ordered to file an amended FCC Form 302 within 30 days showing how its protective fence at the KMBQ site complies with Section 73.49 of the Rules and OET Bulletin 65.
