NOTICE OF APPARENT LIABILITY FOR FORFEITURE
Adopted: August 1, 2012 Released: August 1, 2012
By the District Director, Atlanta Office, South Central Region, Enforcement Bureau:
1. In this Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture (NAL), we find that Hye Cha Kim,
licensee of Station WDGR(AM) in Dahlonega, Georgia (Station), apparently willfully and repeatedly
violated Sections 73.49 and 73.1745 of the Commission's rules (Rules)' by failing to enclose the Station's
antenna structure within an effective locked fence or other enclosure and failing to adhere to the terms of
the Station's authorization. We conclude that Mrs. Kim is apparently liable for a forfeiture in the amount
of eleven thousand dollars ($11,000).
2. Station WDGR(AM) is licensed to operate during daytime hours with 10 kilowatt (kW)
transmitter power, except during critical hours when the station must reduce power to 2.5 kW.2 Thus, the
Station must either discontinue transmitting at local sunset,3 or may operate for two hours past sunset with
a reduced transmitter power of I watt in accordance with its post sunset authority.4
3. On January 5, 2012, and again on January 11, 2012, agents from the Enforcement
Bureau's Atlanta Office (Atlanta Office) monitored the operations of Station WDGR(AM) and observed
the Station operate for more than two hours past sunset on both days, until at least 8:30 p.m.5 The agents
also observed that the Station did not reduce its transmitter power to 1 watt after sunset in accordance
with its post sunset authority.

s On both days, the agents from the Atlanta Office observed that the Station stopped transmitting programming
between 5:45 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., and 5:00 p.m. and 5:15 p.m., respectively, but continued to transmit the
