The FCC Found Americom Las Vegas Limited Partnership, licensee of KWNZ(FM), Carson City, Nev. liable for a $10,000 forfeiture for failure to comply with the RF radiation maximum permissible exposure limits. During an inspection at the McClellan Peak antenna site near Carson City, personal RFR monitors worn by FCC field agents began to go off. In a subsequent inspection, the commission said the station’s RF emissions exceeded the allowable limits by 42%. Americom stated that because the site is remote and not frequently visited by the public, KWNZ should be held to a less restrictive standard.
