   Warning Notice

   Dear Mr. Schwoer:

   The trustee of W2HRW has requested, by letter dated September 28, 2010,
   that you refrain from use of this repeater. The written request was issued
   as a result of an incident that occurred on September 17, 2010, in which
   you got into a dispute with several other amateurs operating on the
   repeater ultimately resulting in threats being made to these other
   amateurs. You have failed to comply with the formal written request and
   instead were heard and recorded operating on the system on February 13,
   2011, at approximately 8:20 PM.

   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 control operator that you stay off of W2HRW - and any other similar
   requests to cease operations on any other repeaters by any other repeater
   licensees, control operators or trustees.

   Use of W2HRW 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.
