                 VIA CERTIFIED MAIL - RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED

   March 31, 2014

   Mr. Todd W. Phillips

   (Address withheld)

   Greenbrier, TN 37073

   Re: Amateur Radio License N4QWZ

   Warning Notice

   Dear Mr. Phillips:

   The trustee of N8ITF has requested multiple times that you refrain from
   use of his repeater. These requests were issued as a result of your
   failure to follow operational rules set forth by the licensee/control
   operator of the repeater system for his users. You have failed to comply
   with the formal requests.

   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 trustee and/or control operator that you stay off of N8ITF - and
   any other similar requests to cease operations on any other repeaters by
   any other repeater licensees, control operators or trustees.

   Use of this repeater 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.

   Sincerely,

   Laura L. Smith, Esq.

   Special Counsel

   Enforcement Bureau

   South Central Regional Director
