FCC Issues $10,000 Penalty Against Acumen Communications (7/30/14)
Wednesday, July 30, 2014 | Comments

The FCC assessed a $10,000 penalty against Acumen Communications for operating a land mobile station on two unauthorized frequencies. Acumen failed to respond to the notice of apparent liability issued to it for the unauthorized operation. Unauthorized operations undermine the FCC’s radio licensing system and potentially cause interference to licensed communications, including public-safety channels.

Acumen, licensee of station WQHT586 in Los Angeles, California, received a proposal of forfeiture on April 9, 2014, from the Enforcement Bureau’s Los Angeles Office. Acumen has not filed a response. However, Acumen did acknowledge the unauthorized operation to FCC agents prior to the proposal.

Payment must be made in the manner provided for in Section 1.80 of the rules within 30-calendar days after the release date of the order. If the forfeiture is not paid within the period specified, the case may be referred to the U.S. Department of Justice for enforcement of the forfeiture pursuant to Section 504(a) of the Act.
