Man From N.J. Cited for Unauthorized Programming

In July of 2019, the FCC cited a New Jersey man for programming unauthorized frequencies into a transmitter violating the FCC's Part 90 rules.  The commission directed Jose Perez to cease and desist programming transmitters to operate on frequencies for which they are not authorized.  Also, Perez is to avoid any recurrence of this misconduct otherwise he may be liable for significant penalties, which may include paying a fine of up to $20,134 per day.


After a complaint of interference, agents from the FCC's Enforcement Bureau's New York Office conducted an investigation of L and G Car Service on Feb. 25th and observed the car service transmitting on frequency 154.8025 MHz in Paterson, New Jersey which is the licensee of private land mobile station WQVL958 and it's license is not authorized to operate on that frequency. 


The agents were informed by L and G Car  Service, that its radio vendor, Perez Communications and Electronics, had programmed the frequency into its radio transmitters.  On Feb. 25, Jose Perez of Perez Communications and Electronics admitted that he had programmed the radio equipment for L and G Car Service.


Perez now has 30 days to respond.
