    Subject: Amateur Radio License AH8I: Warning Notice, Case #EB-2007-2996

   Dear Mr. Severa:

   On March 1, 2007, we forwarded to your address of record in Pago Pago a
   complaint regarding out of band operation. The letter was returned
   unclaimed, as was a letter sent to the address of the DX Society of
   California in Folsom, CA, for which you were listed as the trustee; and a
   letter sent to your address in Juneau, AK, another address listed for the
   American Samoa DX Society of California.

   Finally a letter was sent to you at the Chico, CA address on March 27,
   2008, and you replied by letter dated April 25, 2008. In that letter you
   stated that you had operated out of band because it was "dark in the
   vehicle and apparently I experienced a problem with improper VFO selection
   of the transceiver that I was using which caused me to transmit out of
   band." You did not explain why you failed to respond to mail sent to your
   address of record.

   Please be advised that future instances of out of band operation will
   result in enforcement action against your license. Additionally, you are
   requested to update your license records within 10 days indicating ad
   address at which you will receive Commission mail. Failure to respond to
   Commission mail sent to your address of record is a separate violation of
   Commission rules.
