   Re: Amateur Radio license W2DRH: WARNING NOTICE

   Dear Mr. Henry:

   The trustees of the K3TSA repeater system operating on 145.350 MHz has
   requested in writing that you refrain from use of the repeater. The
   request was issued as a result of your failure to follow operational rules
   set forth by the licensee/control operators of the repeater and FCC rules.
   You were previously requested verbally to refrain from using the system,
   but have apparently ignored both verbal and written requests.

   The Commission requires that repeaters be under the supervision of a
   control operator and not only expects, but requires, such control
   operators and licensees to be responsible for the proper operation of the
   repeater system. Control operators may take whatever steps are 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 we expect you to abide by the request to stay off
   the above repeater system and any other such request by a repeater
   licensee, control operator or trustee. If you use the repeater again after
   receipt of this letter, we will initiate enforcement action against your
   license, which may include revocation, monetary forfeiture (fine) or a
   modification proceeding to restrict the frequencies on which you may
   operate W2DRH. Fines normally range from $7,500 to $10,000.

   Additionally, we note you complained that on February 13, 2008, the
   control operator of the K3TSA repeater shut down the repeater while you
   engaged in emergency communications. You had previously been warned not to
   use the repeater and, moreover, three of the five control operators of the
   K3TSA repeater witnessed the communications and reported that there was no
   emergency situation.

   We note that that your license expires on April 21, 2009. Please be
   advised that your license will not be routinely renewed unless this matter
   is resolved.
