The FCC proposed a fine of $140,000 against Peninsula Communications, Inc. for apparently failing to comply with an order to stop translator operations in various communities in Alaska. The commission said the violations began in 1994; one reason the fine was so high.
Peninsula must let the commission know within 10 days whether it has stopped operating its translators. The agency also warned Peninsula that continued operation of the translators could place at risk all of Peninsula's other translator and full service radio station licenses.
