Folks, don’t lose sight of what happened here.
“The New York Office received information…” means that the Part 15 station drew enough attention to itself that it incensed someone to the point that they wrote a letter to the FCC.
It takes a lot to motivate someone to write a letter like that. I’m guessing that the station was offensive, or cutting into someone’s revenue stream.
And the FCC took it seriously enough to send someone out.
Don’t lose sight of where it happened, either. The footprint of that station covered thousands of people. Queens is one of the most densly populated areas of the country.
Maybe I’m naive to believe that someone who is broadcasting as a hobby, soliciting no contributions, selling no ads, and providing quality non-controversial content will continue to broadcast with impunity. But I do.
