Motorola Channel Partner Settles with FCC for $93,600
Thursday, December 27, 2018 | Comments

A Motorola Solutions channel partner agreed to pay $93,600 to the FCC under a consent decree to resolve an FCC investigation.

Mobile Communications America (MCA), which has 40 locations in the Southeast, violated FCC rules related to the transfer of control of wireless radio licenses prior to receiving commission approval and its operation of wireless stations after licenses had expired, an FCC order said. To settle the matter, MCA admitted that it failed to obtain the necessary FCC approval prior to transfer of the wireless licenses in question and agreed to implement a compliance plan and to pay a settlement of $93,600 in redress.

MCA bought several two-way radio dealers in 2018. In October, MCA purchased Sharp Communication & Security Solutions, a two-way radio dealer in Alabama. In September, MCA acquired Gately Communication Co. (GCC) with four locations in Virginia and North Carolina. The firm bought Myrtle Beach Communications in July. WJ Partners, a private investment firm, acquired MCA in 2013.
