   CERTIFIED MAIL -- RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED

   Brandon M. Duke

   1903 Warren Avenue #202

   Longmont, CO 80501

       Amateur Radio License KD0BSH (formerly KC0UWS); Case #EB-2006-2820

   Dear Mr. Duke:

   On January 9, 2007 we notified you that information before the Commission,
   as well as your own admissions, showed that you have been operating radio
   transmitting equipment on frequencies not authorized to you as a
   Technician Class licensee. We reminded you that such operation is a
   violation of Section 301 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47
   United States Code S: 301, and would subject you to fine and imprisonment.
   Additionally, we noted that you have ignored requests to cease operation
   on repeaters in your area. You were advised of the requirement to heed
   those requests in a Commission letter dated January 9, 2006.

   In order to resolve these enforcement issues, you have submitted your
   license to the Commission to be held for one year, retroactive to July 1,
   2007, during which time you will have no authority to operate radio
   transmitting equipment.

   Please be advised that operation of Amateur Radio transmitting equipment
   during this period (until June 30, 2008) would result in enforcement
   action against your license, which may include revocation and monetary
   forfeiture (fine). Fines normally range from $7,500 to $10,000.

   Sincerely,

   W. Riley Hollingsworth

   Special Counsel
