Some holes apparently have a purpose


After receiving complaints about Perihelion Global’s WTKN-AM Corinth MS, and FCC agent called to arrange an inspection with Perihelion. They went unreturned. A few weeks later, an agent monitored the station’s programming, and found it lacked required station identification announcements. Soon thereafter, an FCC agent found a fence around the station’s antenna structure, but it contained a gaping hole. Then attempts to locate a main studio came up empty. Eventually, an attorney for the owner was located. The studio turned out to be a small unattended building near the antenna, accessible only through the hole in the fence. This particular laundry list of violations added up to a $25K fine.
