   John C. Kimbrough

   597 Foxfire Court

   Murfreesboro, TN 37129

     SUBJECT: NOTIFICATION OF REMOVAL OF AUTOMATIC CONTROL PRIVILEGES WR3S
                               REPEATER OPERATION

                              Case #EB-2007-3018 

   Dear Mr. Kimbrough:

   Section 97.109(d) of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R. S: 97.109(d),
   provides that when an Amateur station is being automatically controlled,
   the control operator need not be at the control point. The rule also
   states that automatic control must cease upon notification by an EIC
   (Engineer in Charge, now District Director) that the station is
   transmitting improperly or causing harmful interference to other stations;
   and that automatic control must not be resumed without prior approval of
   the EIC/District Director.

   Your Amateur station WR3S is under review by the Enforcement Bureau for
   apparent violations of the Commission's rules, including inadequate
   station control, interference and failure to properly identify. This
   review is the subject of correspondence between you and the Enforcement
   Bureau.

   You are hereby notified that, until this matter is resolved, WR3S may not
   be operated under automatic control. This means that you must be the
   active control operator on duty at all times the repeater is operational.
   In the event that you are unable to act as the control operator, the
   repeater must be shut down.

   Automatic control may not resume until you are so notified by this office.
   If WR3S is operated under automatic control prior to notification from
   this office, enforcement action will be taken against your Amateur
   operator and station licenses for WR3S. This action may include
   designation of those licenses for a revocation and suspension hearing, and
   a monetary forfeiture.

   This order is effective upon receipt.

   Sincerely,

   Douglas G. Miller
