                                                       Released: June 6, 2006

   By the District Director, Los Angeles District Office, Western 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"), to Camacho Electronic,
   for violation of Section 302(b) of the Act, and Section 2.803(a)(1)of the
   Commission's Rules.

   2. An investigation by the Enforcement Bureau's Los Angeles Office
   revealed that on May 4, 2006, Camacho Electronic offered for sale
   non-certified Citizens Band ("CB") transceivers, namely, Galaxy Model DX99
   and other non-certified Galaxy models. According to Commission's records,
   these devices have not received an FCC equipment authorization which is
   required for Citizens Band transmitters marketed in the United States.

   3. Section 302(b) of the Act states: "[n]o person shall manufacture,
   import, sell, offer for sale, or ship devices or home electronic equipment
   and systems, or use devices, which fail to comply with regulations
   promulgated pursuant to this section." Section 2.803(a)(1) of the Rules
   provides that " person shall sell or lease, or offer for sale or
   lease (including advertising for sale or lease), or import, ship or
   distribute for the purpose of selling or leasing or offering for sale or
   lease, any radio frequency device unless: (1) In the case of a device
   subject to certification, such device has been authorized by the
   Commission in accordance with the rules in this chapter and is properly
   identified and labeled . . . ." Camacho Electronic's offer for sale of
   these devices violates both sections.

   4. Additionally, dual use CB and amateur radios of the kind at issue here
   may not be certificated under the Commission's rules.

   5. Violations of the Act or the Commission's Rules may subject the
   violator to substantial monetary forfeitures, seizure of equipment through
   in rem forfeiture action, and criminal sanctions including imprisonment.

   6. Camacho Electronic may request an interview at the closest FCC Office,
   which is Federal Communications Commission, 18000 Studebaker Road, Suite
   660, Cerritos, CA 90703. You may contact this office by telephone,
   562-865-0598, to schedule this interview, which must take place within 14
   days of this Citation. Camacho Electronic may also submit a written
   statement to the above address within 14 days of the date of this
   Citation. Any written statements should specify what actions have been
   taken to correct the violations outlined above. Please reference file
   number EB-06-LA-139 when corresponding with the Commission.

   7. Any statement or information provided by you may be used by the
   Commission to determine if further enforcement action is required. Any
   knowingly or willfully false statement made in reply to this Citation is
   punishable by fine or imprisonment.

   8. IT IS ORDERED that copies of this Citation shall be sent by First Class
   U.S. Mail and Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested to Camacho
   Electronic at its address of record

   1988). This clarification was added to explicitly foreclose the
   possibility of certification of dual use CB and amateur radios, see id.,
   and thereby deter use by CB operators of frequencies allocated for amateur
   radio use.
