   Dear Mr. Roll:

   On Friday, November 16, 2012, you were heard by staff at the Commission's
   monitoring station failing to properly identify your amateur station while
   operating on the frequency of 14.313 MHz.

   On November 16, 2012, you were heard by a Commission employee operating
   your amateur radio station for 20 minutes without identifying in a timely
   manner.  The Commission employee used direction finding equipment and
   confirmed the transmissions were coming from your location.  The employee
   recorded the offending transmissions, and provided undersigned counsel
   with recordings of the incident in question.  Should you desire a copy of
   the recording, one will be made available to you.

   This incident constitutes a failure to properly transmit your assigned
   call sign in violation of the Commission's rules. Your operation as
   described above is contrary to the basis and purpose of the amateur radio
   service as set out in Section 97.1 and is a violation of Section 97.119(a)
   of the Commission's rules. Please be advised that the Commission expects
   you to abide by its rules This letter serves as notice that, if operation
   of this type reoccurs after receipt of this letter, you could be subject
   to severe penalties, including license revocation, monetary forfeiture
   (fines), or a modification proceeding to restrict

   the frequencies upon which you may operate.
