In late September, Diponti Communications was handed a Notice of Apparent Liability from the Audio Division of the FCC’s Media Bureau seeking a $7,000 fine.
Why? The Rhode Island licensee apparently willfully violated section 73.3539 of the Rules by failing to timely file a license renewal application and for apparently willfully and repeatedly violating Section 301 of the Act by engaging in unauthorized operation of its FM translator after the license had expired.
The Media Bureau has ruled on the matter. A fine is being handed to Diponti, but it’s been reduced.
