   RE: Radio Frequency Interference


   Dear Mr. Crusey:

   The Federal Communications Commission has previously notified you by
   letter dated June 10, 2013, that it has received complaints of harmful
   radio interference possibly caused by equipment operated the Tipp City
   utility. This interference had been reported by an operator in the Amateur
   Radio Service. The complainant is:

   (Name withheld)

   (Address withheld)

   Tipp City, OH 45371

   Tel: (Number withheld)

   In the June 10, 2013 letter, you were advised that this problem, if
   unresolved, could be a violation of Commission rules and could result in a
   monetary forfeiture. For this reason, we encouraged the parties involved
   to voluntarily resolve this matter without Commission intervention. If
   however it became necessary to facilitate a resolution, the Commission
   might investigate possible rules violations and address appropriate
   remedies, including monetary forfeiture.

   You were further advised to inform the complainant within 60  days of what
   steps would be taken to correct this reported interference problem. In
   addition, if unable to resolve this matter within those 60 days, you were
   advised to inform this office about the nature of the problem, the steps
   being taken to resolve it and the estimated time in which those steps
   could be accomplished. Although you have responded to (namewithheld)
   within the specified time period, the harmful interference he reported to
   this office still remains unresolved.

   In order to avoid possible enforcement action, please advise this office
   within 30 days of the date of receiving this letter of what action you
   have made, or intend to make, in order to identify and correct the source
   of these radio emissions if they are being caused by your equipment.

   If you have any questions about this matter, please contact me in writing
   at: 1270 Fairfield Road, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania 17325 or via telephone
   at: 717-338-2577.
