It took more than three years, but the FCC on October 30 issued a Forfeiture Order on October 30 assessing a $25,000 fine against Winston Tulloch, KC2ALN, of Paterson, New Jersey.
According to the FCC,
Tulloch was operating an unlicensed FM broadcast station on 90.9 MHz,
transmitting from different locations each time Commission field agents came to
investigate. They determined on a final visit in 2017 that the station was no
longer on the air.
The FCC says Tulloch never responded to violation
notices mailed to him and even posted on the door of one location. There is no
indication of what impact, if any, this matter may have on Tulloch's ability to
renew his amateur license when it expires in 2026.
