The FCC fined Radio X Broadcasting Corp., licensee of WXLX(FM), Lajas, Puerto Rico, $20,000 for not keeping its tower painted nor maintaining a public inspection file at the main studio. During an inspection last year, when the field agents asked to see the file, the operator on duty told them it was at the station owner's office, 100 miles away from the city of license. Radio X did not dispute the findings, but asked to have the penalty cancelled or reduced, citing financial difficulties.
The commission said the company did not submit enough information to verify that claim and though the station corrected the violations, doing that after being cited is not enough to warrant a penalty reduction. The station has 30 days to pay.
