Before the

Federal Communications Commission

Washington, D.C. 20554

In the Matter of

AERCO Broadcasting Corporation

Licensee of Station WSJU-TV,

San Juan, PR







File No.: EB-FIELDSCR-13-00007129

NAL/Acct. No.: 201232680005

FRN No.: 0003732435

Facility ID No.: 4077

Memorandum opinion and order

Adopted: December 11, 2014 Released: December 11, 2014

By the Commission:

We deny the Application for Review filed by AERCO Broadcasting Corporation (AERCO), licensee of Station WSJU-TV, San Juan, Puerto Rico. AERCO seeks review of a Memorandum Opinion and Order (MO&O) issued by the Enforcement Bureau (Bureau), which affirmed the Bureau's Forfeiture Order that found that AERCO was liable for a forfeiture in the amount of $4,000 for operating a studio to transmitter link on an unauthorized frequency over a nine month period in violation of Section 301 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended (Act), and Section 1.903(a) of the Commission's rules (Rules). AERCO raises two issues on review, both of which were argued previously before the Bureau and rejected.

Upon consideration of the Application for Review and the entire record, we conclude that AERCO has not demonstrated that the Bureau erred. The Bureau, in the Forfeiture Order and the MO&O, properly decided the matters raised, and we uphold its decisions for the reasons stated therein.

ACCORDINGLY, IT IS ORDERED that, pursuant to Section 5(c)(5) of the Act and Section 1.115(g) of the Rules, the Application for Review IS DENIED.
