   Amateur Radio License WX4QN


   Dear Mr. Evans:

   On Sunday, November 18, 2012, and again on Friday, November 23, 2012, you
   were heard by staff at the Commission's monitoring station admitting that
   you were causing intentional interference to another station operating in
   proximity to your desired operating frequency of 14.313 MHz.

   On November 18, 2012, at 143 UTC, you were heard admitting that you were
   "jamming" another station and that you intended to do so again. Then, on
   November 23, 2012, at 1615 UTC, you were heard admitting that you had
   refrained from "jamming" this licensee while my predecessor, Mr.
   Hollingsworth, was at the Commission but upon his retirement you resumed
   confronting and "jamming" this licensee.  An employee of the Commission
   used direction finding equipment and confirmed these transmissions were
   coming from your location.  The employee recorded the offending
   transmissions, and provided undersigned counsel with recordings of the
   incident in question.  Should you desire a copy of the recording, one will
   be made available to you.

   Your operation as described above is contrary to the basis and purpose of
   the amateur radio service as set out in Section 97.1. Furthermore,
   deliberately "jamming" another licensee is a violation of Section
   97.113(5)(c) of the Commission's rules.^ Please be advised that the
   Commission expects you to abide by its rules This letter serves as notice
   that, if operation of this type reoccurs after receipt of this letter, you
   could be subject to severe penalties, including license revocation,
   monetary forfeiture

   (fines),^ or a modification proceeding to restrict the frequencies upon
   which you may operate.
