Choice 102.9 hit with $10K fine

>>OTOH, not paying the fine
may give the FCC no alternative than to arrest both the operator and the
equipment (what's know legally as an "ad rem" arrest of the equipment,
similar to what police do with drug arrests...they confiscate anything,
like a car, used in a drug deal).
The following link is to a story about a Haitian pirate in Florida
The owner, who made bail, was told "as long as it wasn't a commercial
business and his antenna wasn't over 50 feet … that it was legal."
Supposedly the antenna was even taller than 50 feet, though. A
complaint was made that it
was interfering with a legit station 1 MHz away. Note that Choice FM
is only 0.4 MHz away from GM's WKLB and CBS's WODS...
