   Warning Notice


   Dear Mr. Caprio:

   The owners/trustees of K9TLT, K7MCH, K7MPR, K7FY, N7DPS and K7RLW have
   requested that you refrain from use of their repeaters. The
   owners/trustees of these repeaters advised you of this request in writing
   on December 2, 2009. The week of March 22, 2010, you were observed
   operating on the K7MCH repeater. Since you have failed to comply with the
   request of the repeater owners/trustees to refrain from use of their
   repeaters, they requested Commission action on this matter.

   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 owners/trustees that you stay off of the following repeaters:
   K9TLT, K7MCH, K7MPR, K7FY, N7DPS and K7RLW. You are also advised that you
   must comply with any other similar requests to cease operations on any
   other repeaters by any other repeater licensees, control operators or

   Use of any of the above-mentioned repeaters 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.
