   Warning Notice

   Dear Ms. Hodges:

   The trustee of W4BLT has requested, via a certified letter dated August
   23, 2010, that you refrain from use of the repeater. A copy of this letter
   and the corresponding completed signature card are enclosed for your
   convenience. The request was issued as a result of your failure to follow
   operational rules set forth by the licensee/control operators of the
   repeater system for its users. You have failed to comply with the formal
   written request, necessitating Commission action on this matter.

   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 control operator that you stay off of W4BLT - and any other similar
   requests to cease operations on any other repeaters by any other repeater
   licensees, control operators or trustees.

   Use of W4BLT 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.
