   Warning Notice

   Dear Mr. Bolte:

   The trustee of W1CKD has requested that you refrain from use of his
   repeater. The request was issued as a result of your failure to follow
   operational rules set forth by the licensee/control operators of the
   repeater system for their users. You were previously issued three verbal
   requests to refrain from using the system, but were heard again on the
   repeater subsequent to those requests. On May 23, 2012, the trustee again
   confirmed via a verbal warning that you were to refrain from using his
   repeater. Immediately following that verbal warning, you were again heard
   on the W1CKD repeater necessitating the request of the repeater owner for
   Commission intervention.

   The Commission requires that repeaters be under the supervision of a
   control operator and not only expects, but requires, that such control
   operators be responsible for the proper operation of the repeater system.
   Control operators may take whatever steps they deem 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 the Commission expects you to abide by the request
   of the control operator that you stay off of W1CKD - and any other similar
   requests to cease operations on any other repeaters by any other repeater
   licensees, control operators or trustees.

   Use of W1CKD again after receipt of this letter could subject you to
   severe penalties, including license revocation, monetary forfeiture (fine)
   or a modification proceeding to restrict the frequencies upon which you
   may operate.
