   Amateur Radio License KC7LVR


   Dear Mr. Fee:

   By letter dated February 24, 2010, the Commission notified you that it had
   received a complaint regarding the operation of your amateur station. The
   complaint alleged that you have been operating under the amateur radio
   call sign K7KQ rather than your own call sign - KC7LVR.

   Your parents responded to the Commission's letter on March 1, 2010. In
   that letter, they indicate that you currently live with them due to a
   medical condition and state that you have been under a doctor's care for
   this condition for several years. They acknowledge that you may not have
   been operating your amateur radio properly, note that they are sorry for
   what happened and indicated that they will endeavor to ensure that you
   operate your radio properly going forward.

   Your operation as described above is contrary to the basis and purpose of
   the amateur radio service as set out in Section 97.1 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.
