Gable Signs & Graphics Fined for Marketing Unauthorized LED Signs

According to an Order released November 27, Gable Signs & Graphics, Inc. violated FCC rules by marketing light-emitting diode (LED) signs used in digital billboards and other commercial and industrial applications without the required equipment authorization, labeling, and user manual disclosures, and by failing to produce certain required test records. These rules ensure that radio-frequency devices marketed in the United States do not interfere with authorized communications, thereby maintaining network integrity and security and protecting consumers. To settle this matter, Gable admitted that it violated the Commission’s rules, will implement a compliance plan and will pay a $50,000 civil penalty.
