RE:  EB-FIELDNER-14-00015640

Dear Mr. Gonser:

	The Federal Communications Commission has previously notified you by letter on May 16, 2014 that it had received complaints of harmful radio interference possibly caused by equipment operated by your company.  This interference has been reported by an operator in the Amateur Radio Service.  The complainant is:

		(Name withheld)
		(Address withheld)
		The Dalles, OR 97058
		Tel: (Number withheld) 

In this letter, you were advised that this problem, if unresolved, could be a violation of FCC rules and could result in a monetary forfeiture. For this reason, we encouraged the parties involved to voluntarily resolve this matter without Commission intervention.  If however it became necessary to facilitate a resolution, the Commission might investigate possible rules violations and address appropriate remedies, including monetary forfeiture.

You were further advised to inform the complainant within 60 days of what steps would be taken to correct this reported interference problem.  In addition, if unable to resolve this matter by June 20, 2014, you were advised to inform this office about the nature of the problem, the steps being taken to resolve it and the estimated time in which those steps can be accomplished.  Although you have responded to Mr. Finn within the specified time period, the harmful interference he reported to this office still remains unresolved after over six months.

In order to avoid possible enforcement action, please advise this office within 30 days of the date of receiving this letter of what action you have made, or intend to make, in order to identify and correct the source of these radio emissions if they are being caused by your equipment.

If you have any questions about this matter, please contact me in writing at 1270 Fairfield Road, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania 17325.
