N.J. Man Cited for Programming Unauthorized Part 90 Frequencies
Wednesday, July 03, 2019 | Comments

The FCC cited Jose Perez for programming unauthorized frequencies into a transmitter in violation of the FCC’s Part 90 rules. The commission directed Perez to cease and desist from programming transmitters to operate on frequencies for which they are not authorized and to avoid any recurrence of this misconduct. If Perez fails to comply with these rules, he may be liable for significant penalties, including fines of up to $20,134 per day.

On Feb. 25, in response to a complaint of interference, agents from the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau’s New York Office conducted an investigation and observed L and G Car Service, the licensee of private land mobile station WQVL958, transmitting on frequency 154.8025 MHz in Paterson, New Jersey. The license for station WQVL958 does not authorize operation on 154.8025 MHz.

A representative from L and G Car Service informed the agents that its radio vendor, Perez Communications and Electronics, had programmed the frequency 154.8025 MHz into its radio transmitters. In a telephone conversation Feb. 25, Jose Perez of Perez Communications and Electronics acknowledged that he had programmed the radio transmitting equipment that L and G Car Service was operating.

Perez has 30 days to respond to the citation. The full order is here.

This is a public-safety frequency. That's really playing with fire considering what the FCC has done to illegal use of business radio frequencies. Does this radio company know FCC regulations?
