   Warning Notice

   Dear Mr. Deane:

   The trustee of WA7DG has requested, by letter dated April 4, 2012, 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 operators of the repeater system for their users. You
   have recently been heard again on the WA7DG 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 WA7DG - and any other similar
   requests to cease operations on any other repeaters by any other repeater
   licensees, control operators or trustees.

   Use of WA7DG 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.

   Sincerely,

   Laura L. Smith, Esq.

   Special Counsel
