Recent Enforcement Actions, April 3, 2019

L and G Car Service of Patterson, New Jersey, recently received a “Notice of Violation” for operating on 154.8025 MHz, a frequency that is not authorized for use by any particular class of licensees. Of course, somebody knew better, perhaps the same radio shop that programmed channels within Barnstable High School’s radio system for which they were not eligible, as 154.8025 MHz is positioned dead between two adjacent channel public safety frequencies. The public safety licensees of course received interference and brought the matter to the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau. (See EB-FIELDNER-19-00028519)
