FCC Proposes One Late License Renewal Fine, Denies Objections To Two New FMs
November 30, 2011 at 3:12 PM (PT)
The FCC is proposing a $250 fine against LINCOLN UNIVERSITY for a late license renewal application for noncommercial WWLU/LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA, but has granted the station's license renewal.
In addition, the Commission rejected ENTRAVISION's objection to a new FM at TONOPAH, AZ granted to ABLE RADIO CORP. ENTRAVISION objected to ABLE's move of the allocation it won in FM Auction 70 from AGUILA to TONOPAH, saying that the transmitter site was on restricted federal wilderness land and that ABLE's subsequent application to move to another site and move the community of license back to AGUILA was tantamount to an admission that it did not have adequate assurance that the previous site would be available. The Commission said that the precedents for denying an amendment apply to the original coordinates, not subsequent amendments.
And the Commission denied a Petition for Reconsideration by MARTIN BAYOU MANAGEMENT CORPORATION of the denial of its application for a new noncommercial FM at MEXICO, FL and the grant of HELP SAVE THE APALACHICOLA RIVER GROUP, INC.'s application for a new noncommercial FM at PORT ST. JOE, FL.
