   Subject: Amateur Radio license KB1CQX: WARNING NOTICE

   Dear Ms. Spenlinhauer:

   The trustees of the N1KMA, N1VAR, KQ1L and the repeaters operating under
   the WA1ARN call sign have requested in writing that you refrain from use
   of the repeater. The requests were issued as a result of your failure to
   follow operational rules set forth by the licensee/control operators of
   the repeater system for its users and FCC rules. You were previously
   requested verbally to refrain from using the system, but have apparently
   ignored both verbal and written requests.

   The Commission requires that repeaters be under the supervision of a
   control operator and not only expects, but requires, such control
   operators and licensees to be responsible for the proper operation of the
   repeater system. Control operators may take whatever steps are 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 we expect you to abide by the request to stay off
   the above repeater systems and any other such request by a repeater
   licensee, control operator or trustee. If you use the repeaters again
   after receipt of this letter, we will initiate enforcement action against
   your license, which may include revocation, monetary forfeiture (fine) or
   a modification proceeding to restrict the frequencies on which you may
   operate KB1CQX. Fines normally range from $7,500 to $10,000.

   Additionally, we note that your license expiration date is April 7, 2008.
   Please be advised that your license will not be routinely renewed unless
   this matter is resolved.
