                 VIA CERTIFIED MAIL - RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED

   Re: Amateur Radio License N9TOT

   Warning Notice

   EB-10-GB-0022

   Dear Mr. Taylor:

   The trustees of K9WZ have requested that you refrain from use of their
   repeater. The trustees of K9WZ attempted to contact you via certified
   letter, but you refused service. You were previously issued several
   requests to refrain from using the system, but failed to comply with those
   requests necessitating the formal written request for Commission action on
   this matter.

   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 K9WZ - and any other similar
   requests to cease operations on any other repeaters by any other repeater
   licensees, control operators or trustees.

   Use of K9WZ 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

   Special Counsel
