                                   Released: January 12, 

By the District Director, Philadelphia Office, Northeast 
Region, Enforcement Bureau:

   1.     This is an Official Citation issued pursuant to 
     Section 503(b)(5) of the Communications Act of 1934, as 
     amended (``Act''),1 to Cesar Manguba for violation of 
     Section 15.5 of the Commission's rules (``Rules'').2

   2.     The FCC's Philadelphia Office received a complaint 
     from Cingular Wireless regarding emissions on the 
     frequency 827.7 MHz that were preventing their 
     customers from accessing the Cingular Wireless cellular 
     telephone system in Philadelphia, PA.  An investigation 
     conducted by the Philadelphia Office on October 19, 
     2005 revealed that the emissions on the frequency 827.7 
     MHz were emanating from a motion detection light 
     fixture in Cesar Manguba's residence.  The motion 
     detection light fixture is considered an incidental 
     radiator and subject to the conditions of Section 15.5 
     of the Rules.3  

   3.     Section 15.5(b) of the Rules states that 
     ``[o]peration of an intentional, unintentional or 
     incidental radiator is subject to the condition that no 
     harmful interference is caused and that interference 
     must be accepted that may be caused by the operation of 
     an authorized radio station, by another intentional or 
     unintentional radiator, by industrial, scientific and 
     medical (ISM) equipment, or by an incidental 
     radiator.''  Section 15.5(c) of the Rules states that 
     ``the operator of a radio frequency device shall be 
     required to cease operating the device upon 
     notification by a Commission representative that the 
     device is causing harmful interference.''  Operation 
     shall not resume until the condition causing the 
     harmful interference has been corrected.''  Cesar 
     Manguba's operation of the light fixture is causing 
     harmful interference to the Cingular Wireless telephone 
     system in violation of Section 15.5 of the Rules.  

   4.     Subsequent violations of the Communications Act 
     and/or the Commission's Rules may subject the violator 
     to substantial monetary forfeitures not to exceed 
     $11,000 for each such violation or each day of a 
     continuing violation,4 seizure of equipment through in

     the Act, Cesar Manguba is directed to provide a 
     complete description of the actions taken to prevent 
     the harmful interference caused to the Cingular
