The FCC fined Nicolas Paula $17,000 for operating an unlicensed transmitter in the Bronx, N.Y., and not allowing an agency inspection of the station.

The commission said Paula had not responded to an earlier Notice of Apparent Liability, so that’s why it issued a forfeiture. The illegal signal was reported on 94.5 MHz

He has 30 days to pay or the case may be turned over to the Justice Department.
