WASHINGTON — FCC Enforcement Bureau Region Three Regional Director Lark Hadley issued a Notice of Violation to Silver State Broadcasting on Dec. 8.
According to the notice, aural studio to transmitter link station WLI700 in Las Vegas was found to be the source of alleged interference to aircraft and controllers at the Las Vegas Nevada McCarran International Airport.
Agents from the bureau’s Los Angeles and San Francisco Offices investigated a complaint from the Federal Aviation Administration that a spurious emission on 118.75 MHz was causing interference. The agents investigated from Oct. 23–24 direction finding techniques and determined that the signal was transmitting from 6725 Via Austi Parkway in Las Vegas was the source of the reported interference.
At this time, the FCC seeks additional information concerning the violations and any remedial actions taken from Palm Desert, Calif.-based Silver State Broadcasting (WLI700’s licensee) but has not issued a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture.
