                 VIA CERTIFIED MAIL - RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED

   March 23, 2012

   Mr. Daniel H. Rice

   Warning Notice

   EB-12-GB-0089

   Dear Mr. Rice:

   The trustee of N6HOG has requested multiple times that you refrain from
   use of his repeater. These requests were made 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 written request as well as you were heard and recorded operating on
   the system more than a dozen times by the control operator and the club
   president since the January 14, 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 trustee that you stay off of N6HOG - and any other similar requests
   to cease operations on any other repeaters by any other repeater
   licensees, control operators or trustees.

   Use of N6HOG 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

   Cc: San Diego Field Office

   Western Regional Director

   In a letter dated July 11, 2011, Mr. Barry Logan (the trustee) advised you
   that you were restricted from operating on the repeater. On July 12, 2011,
   Mr. Logan followed up with a registered letter. At least twice a month
   since that time Mr. Logan has had to verbally remind you that you are
   prohibited from using the repeater.

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