   Dear Mr. Roberts:

   The Houston Office has received complaints of interference from your
   station, but we have been unable to contact you. Therefore, we wanted to
   remind you that persons operating Citizen Band Radio Stations are required
   to comply with Federal Regulations.

   Pursuant to Section 95.404 of the FCC's Rules ("Rules"), you do not need
   an individual license to operate a CB station, provided you operate your
   CB station in accordance with the Rules.

   Pursuant to Section 95.410 of the FCC's Rules, the use of a CB radio with
   transmitter power output exceeding 4 watts (AM carrier power) voids the
   authority to operate the station. Therefore, any person operating a CB
   transmitter that is not FCC certificated or that has been modified (either
   internally or externally) or who attaches an external radio frequency
   power amplifier (linear amplifier) to a CB transmitter is an unlicensed
   operator and is subject to severe penalties. The FCC presumes that you
   have used a linear or other external RF power amplifier if it is in your
   possession or on your premises. The FCC also presumes that you have used a
   linear or other external RF power amplifier if there is other evidence,
   such as on-scene monitoring equipment or power measurements that suggest
   you have been operating a CB station with excessive power. In addition,
   the Rules prohibit communicating or attempting to communicate with any CB
   station more than 250 kilometers away or installing a fixed antenna more
   than 20 feet higher than the highest point of the building or tree on
   which it is mounted or more than 60 feet above the ground. Violation of
   these Rules also voids the authority to operate a CB station.

   Operation of radio transmitting equipment without a valid FCC
   authorization or license is a violation of Section 301 of the
   Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and may subject the operator to
   substantial monetary fines, in rem arrest action against the offending
   radio equipment, and criminal sanctions including imprisonment. Because
   unlicensed operation creates a danger of interference to important radio
   communications services and may subject the operator to severe penalties,
   this warning emphasizes the importance of complying strictly with these
   legal requirements.


   If your station operation complies with federal regulations, then you need
   not respond to this letter. Should you choose to respond, we will use all
   relevant material, including the material you submit, to decide if further
   enforcement is necessary to ensure your compliance with our Rules.
