   Re: Warning Notice

   Amateur Radio License N6HHT


   Dear Mr. Herttua:

   The owner/trustee of K6JSI has requested, by letter dated February 25,
   2009, that you refrain from use of this repeater. The written request was
   issued as a result of your failure to follow operational rules set forth
   by the licensee/control operator of the repeater system for its users. You
   were previously issued several requests to refrain from using the system,
   but failed to comply with them necessitating the formal written request.
   You have failed to comply with the formal written request and have been
   heard operating on the repeater on an almost daily basis between 7:00-7:45
   and 11:45-4:45 since the February 25, 2009, letter was sent.

   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 owner/trustee that you stay off of K6JSI - and any other similar
   requests to cease operations on any other repeaters by any other repeater
   licensees, control operators or trustees.

   Use of K6JSI 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.

   Special Counsel

   Cc: San Diego Field Office

   Western Regional Director

   You were verbally advised by two controllers in the presence of two of
   your family members to cease operations on the K6JSI repeater.

   Fines normally range from $7,500 to $10,000.
