   RE: Amateur Radio license AD5CT: Warning Notice

   Dear Mr. Maltese:

   The trustees of the W5DSC and K5SOI repeaters have requested in writing
   that you refrain from use of the repeaters. The letters were 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 requests to stay off
   the W5DSC and K5SOI systems and any other such requests  by repeater
   licensees, control operators or trustees. If you use these 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 AD5CT. Fines normally range from $7,500 to $10,000.

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

   Sincerely,

   W. Riley Hollingsworth

   Special Counsel
