FCC Issues Notice of Violation to Colorado Manufacturer for Interference
Tuesday, May 18, 2021 | Comments

The FCC’s Enforcement Bureau issued a notice of violation to Viega of Broomfield, Colorado, for interference to communications operated by the Adams County Communications Center Authority (Adcomm911).

In October 2020, FCC agents investigated interference to Adcomm911’s licensed frequencies and through direction-finding techniques, located radio emissions in the 800 MHz emanating from a bi-directional amplifier (BDA) operating in Viega’s office. The FCC said that an on/off test of the BDA confirmed that it was interfering with Adcomm’s licensed communications system. That interference ceased when Viega unplugged the equipment in October.

The FCC said it is seeking more information about the violation and asked Viega to submit a written statement concerning the incident within in 20 days, explaining the violation, actions taken to correct the action and a timeline for completing any corrective actions.
