KPBA (defunct)

KPBA was an AM radio station transmitting from Pine Bluff, Arkansas. During its time on-air, it was a 5,000 watt AM broadcasting on the frequency 1270 kHz.

On July 22 2002, The Federal Communications Commission's New Orleans Enforcement Bureau issued a Notice of Apparent Liability (NAL) against the station's licensee, Metro Birch Enterprises, Inc. The NAL states that "The agent observed that the station's antenna tower, which had radio frequency potential at the base, was not enclosed inside a fence or other protective enclosure. Additionally, the station's public inspection file consisted of only a few letters from the public."

On January 28, 2003, the station was fined $17,000 "for willfully violating Sections 73.49 and 73.3526(a)(2) of the Rules."
