FCC fines CBer

The FCC has fined an Alaska CBer $500 for 'willfully and repeatedly' operating a non-certificated CB transmitter with an RF linear amplifier

The FCC Commission said this violated federal law and its rules and 'voided his authority to operate his CB station.'

In a Forfeiture Order released 30 October 2013, the FCC noted that the CBer, Glenn S. Yamada, of Kenai, Alaska, did not deny the violations but stated that he “did not intend to violate” the Communications Act of 1934 or FCC rules.

Yamada also told the FCC that he was unable to pay the initial forfeiture of $12,500, imposed in a July 18, 2012, Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture (NAL).
