More than 1,000 stations have been ordered to take down their broadcasts after a government directive forbidding broadcasters from using any radio frequencies that could interfere with the functioning of the electronic network.
The move came after the government said it was worried that some broadcasters were using frequencies that interfered with cellular networks.
The decision comes after the FCC and the Department of Homeland Security last year ordered a number of radio broadcasters to take precautions to ensure that their transmissions did not interfere with cellular communications, according to The Associated Press.
The rules, which came in March, also require broadcasters to remove all copyrighted material and prevent any radio stations from broadcasting without permission from the Federal Communications Commission, which regulates radio broadcasting.
The FCC’s rules do not apply to television stations, and the agency’s regulations are largely aimed at preventing broadcasters from taking their jobs away from their employees.
Radio broadcasting is an important source of entertainment for the American public, but a lot of the money that broadcasters make comes from the fees that they collect from paying people to tune in to the radio stations.
In order to prevent interference with cellular phones, the FCC also requires broadcasters to use frequencies that are more than 3,500 feet above the ground.
That means many stations can only transmit at a distance of between 10 and 15 feet, so the signals must be sent to their antennas at the lowest possible frequencies.
