FCC Imposes Full Penalty on Unlicensed Amateur Radio Station Operator
Monday, December 05, 2016 | Comments

The FCC imposed a $23,000 penalty first proposed in September against Daniel Delise for operating an unlicensed amateur radio station on the amateur radio service frequency 147.96 MHz from his residence in Astoria, New York, and falsely transmitting an officer-in-distress call.

The penalty represents the full amount proposed in the notice of apparent liability for forfeiture, as well as an upward adjustment reflecting Delise’s decision to continue his misconduct after being warned that his actions violated the Communications Act and the FCC’s rules.

“After reviewing Mr. Delise’s response to the NAL, we find no reason to cancel, withdraw or reduce the proposed penalty, and we therefore assess the $23,000 forfeiture the bureau previously proposed,” the FCC said.

The full order is here.
