NJ Pirate Enters FCC Consent Decree

For three years, a member of the national association for amateur radio evaded the FCC with illicit broadcasts at 90.9 MHz in a Northern New Jersey city not far from midtown Manhattan, across the Hudson River.

In April 2018, the Commission was finally able to act on the matter by issuing a hefty Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture to the individual determined to be running the pirate radio stations, and followed up with a Forfeiture Order six months later.

Now, the matter is officially resolved by way of a Consent Decree.

On Wednesday (10/31), the Enforcement Bureau moved forward with a Forfeiture Order against Winston Tulloch (QRZ.com lists a callsign for a Winston Tulloch as KC2ALN).

As reported by RBR+TVBR, Tulloch was fined $25,000 fine for his unlicensed radio broadcast activity. The Forfeiture Order from Enforcement Bureau Regional Director Dave Dombrowski was a simple conclusion: Tulloch failed to file a response to the April 2018 NAL.
