Virginia Hospital Receives Notice of Violation for BDA Interfering with Airport
Thursday, October 18, 2018 | Comments

The FCC issued a notice of violation (Notice) to Stone Springs Hospital Center, owner of signal booster # SB0003172 in Dulles, Virginia.

On May 31, agents of the Enforcement Bureau’s Columbia office investigated a complaint of interference and determined that the source was a signal booster located at the Stone Springs Hospital Center.

The signal booster was a Cellular Specialties bidirectional amplifier (BDA). On behalf of Stone Springs Hospital Center, CellAntenna registered the signal booster in the FCC’s Part 90 Class B Signal Booster Registration Database under Signal Booster ID SB0003172.

At the time of the investigation, the signal booster was generating spurious emissions in the 800 MHz band that exceeded the effective radiated power (ERP) limit and caused harmful interference to the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority’s LMR service station WPAY961.

The hospital must submit a written statement to the FCC within 20 days. Download the notice here.
