   Attn: Manager

                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-06-DT-018

   Document Number: W20063236006

   The Detroit Office received information regarding an unlicensed land
   mobile radio station operating on the frequencies 152.27 MHz, 157.53 MHz,
   and 154.115 MHz in the Ashtabula, Ohio area. On January 19, 2006, an agent
   from this office inspected the radio station and confirmed that City
   Taxicab and Transfer Company was operating a station on those frequencies.
   The Commission's records show that no license was issued for your radio
   operation at this location on 152.27 MHz, or 157.53 MHz, or 154.115 MHz in
   Ashtabula, Ohio. The frequency 154.115 MHz is for use by public safety
   entities only and therefore your business is not eligible for a license
   for that frequency.

   Radio stations must be licensed by the FCC pursuant to 47 U.S.C. S 301.
   You are hereby warned that operation of radio transmitting equipment
   without a valid radio station authorization constitutes a violation of 47
   U.S.C. S 301 and could subject the owner of this illegal operation to
   severe penalties, including, but not limited to, substantial monetary
   fines, in rem arrest action against the offending radio equipment, and
   criminal sanctions including imprisonment. (see 47 U.S.C. SS 401, 501, 503
   and 510).

   UNLICENSED OPERATION OF THIS RADIO STATION MUST BE DISCONTINUED
   IMMEDIATELY.

   You have ten (10) days from the date of this notice to respond with any
   evidence that you have authority to operate granted by the FCC. Your
   response should be sent to the address in the letterhead and reference the
   listed case and document number. Under the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. S
   552a(e)(3), we are informing you that the Commission's staff will use all
   relevant material information before it to determine what, if any,
   enforcement action is required to ensure your compliance with FCC Rules.
   This will include any information that you disclose in your reply.

   You may contact this office if you have any questions.
