   RE: Warning Notice: Amateur Radio License KB0TVP

   Dear Mr. Ellis:

   The licensees of the W0MXW and K0RGR repeater systems have requested in
   writing that you refrain from use of the repeaters. The letter was issued
   as a result of your failure to follow operational rules set forth by the
   licensee/control operators of the repeater systems for their users. You
   were previously requested verbally to refrain from using the system, but
   have apparently ignored both verbal and written requests.

   The Commission requires that repeaters be under the supervision of a
   control operator and not only expects, but requires, such control
   operators and licensees to be responsible for the proper operation of the
   repeater system. Control operators may take whatever steps are appropriate
   to ensure compliance with the repeater rules, including limiting the
   repeater use to certain users, converting the repeater to a closed
   repeater or taking it off the air entirely.

   Please be advised that we expect you to abide by the request to stay off
   the W0MXW and K0RGR repeaters and any other such request by a repeater
   licensee, control operator or trustee. If you use the repeaters again
   after receipt of this letter, we will initiate enforcement action against
   your license, which may include revocation, monetary forfeiture (fine) or
   a modification proceeding to restrict the frequencies on which you may
   operate KB0TVP. Also please be advised that use of the output frequency of
   the repeaters to interfere with their operation would be considered
   deliberate interference. There are numerous frequencies available to you
   for simplex operation.

   Additionally, allegations of interference by you to the Olmstead County
   EOC repeater, W0EAS, will be the subject of a separate inquiry.

   Please call me at 717-338-2502 if you have any questions about this
   matter.

   Sincerely,

   W. Riley Hollingsworth
