   RE: Radio Frequency Interference


   Dear Mr. (name withheld):

   The Federal Communications Commission has previously notified you by
   letter dated February 25, 2011 that it has received a complaint that an
   electronic or electrical device traced to your home may be causing harmful
   radio interference to an operator in the Amateur Radio Service. The
   complainant is:

   (Name withheld)

   (Address withheld)

   (Address withheld)

   The complainant has attempted unsuccessfully to resolve this problem and
   as a result the matter has been referred to our office. The Commission
   prefers that those responsible for the proper operation of equipment
   assume their responsibilities fairly. This means that you should resolve
   the interference caused by the device and make necessary corrections
   within a reasonable time. The March 7, 2011, letter specifically stated,
   however, that if it became necessary for the Commission to facilitate a
   resolution, the Commission might investigate possible rule violations and
   address appropriate remedies, including monetary forfeitures.

   According to (name withheld), you have not contacted him regarding the
   interference nor has the interference been rectified. Lack of response to
   the Commission's letter is not acceptable. In order to avoid enforcement
   action on this matter, you have thirty (30) days from the date of receipt
   of this letter to respond to this office at the following address: 1270
   Fairfield Road, Gettysburg, PA 17325. The response must contain a
   statement of the specific action(s) taken to eliminate the source(s) of
   (name withheld) radio interference. If you have any questions about this
   matter, please contact me at 717-338-2577.
