   Warning Notice

   Dear Mr. Cerniglia:

   The trustee of N5ERS has requested, by letter dated September 7, 2011,
   that you refrain from use of his repeater. The written request was issued
   as a result of your failure to follow operational rules set forth by the
   licensee/control operator of the repeater system for his users. You have
   failed to comply with the formal written request.

   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 trustee and/or control operator that you stay off of N5ERS - and
   any other similar requests to cease operations on any other repeaters by
   any other repeater licensees, control operators or trustees.

   Use of this repeater 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.
