Steve at RadioNewark you have reached this blogger with your comment, and, after going back and re-reading the NOUO I admit to having been blind to the very first sentence, which is the heart of your message: “The NY Office has received information…”
It also, based on your further remarks, seems very likely that the station at 1620 must have “made noise” in a way that made it obvious WHERE IT WAS LOCATED, and produced content which IGNITED SOMEONE’S IRE.
With this scenario the fcc didn’t need to raise program content as a cause of action, it only needed a technical violation.
Naive or not, I also believe that a low power signal operated with the smooth sound of a “normal” radio station, would go mainly unnoticed by the average dial twirler, and would seemingly be coming from “anywhere,” unless great emphasis is given to a specific location.
Wiser and age-ier.
