   Warning Notice

   Dear Mr. Tyrpin:

   The trustees of KA3BFI, N3QWW, W3CDU, W3CSL and N3OVP have requested, by
   letter dated December 3, 2012, that you refrain from use of these
   repeaters. The written request was issued as a result of your failure to
   follow operational rules set forth by the licensee/control operators of
   the repeater systems for their users. You were previously issued several
   requests to refrain from using the systems, but failed to comply with them
   necessitating the formal written request. You have failed to comply with
   the formal written request as well as you were heard attempting to operate
   on the system on January 16, 2013.

   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 KA3BFI, N3QWW, W3CDU, W3CSL
   and N3OVP - and any other similar requests to cease operations on any
   other repeaters by any other repeater licensees, control operators or

   Use of any of these repeaters 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.
