                                                Released: September  28, 2006

   By the District Director,  Tampa Office, South Central Region, Enforcement

    1. This is an Official Citation, issued to Coverage Solutions Corporation
       ("CSC") pursuant to Section 503(b)(5) of the Communications Act of
       1934, as amended ("Act"),  for violation of Section 302(b) of the Act
       and Sections 2.803(a)(1) and 2.925(a)(1) of the Commission's Rules

    2. Investigation by the Commission's Tampa Office of the Enforcement
       Bureau ("Tampa Office") determined that CSC imported several dual band
       radio frequency amplifiers into the United States in early January
       2006. All of the units in question were of the same model,  and none
       were labeled with the required FCC Identification ("FCC ID"). The
       Tampa Office sent one of the units to the Commission's Office of
       Engineering and Technology ("OET") for testing and evaluation.  OET
       confirmed that the unit was not type accepted, certified, or verified.

    3. Section 302(b) of the Act provides that "[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:

   no 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 . . . [i]n 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 as required by S 2.925 and other relevant sections in this

   Section 2.925(a)(1)  states "Each equipment covered in an application for
   equipment authorization shall bear a nameplate or label listing the
   following: (1) FCC Identifier consisting of the two elements in the exact
   order specified in S 2.926. The FCC Identifier shall be preceded by the
   term FCC ID in capital letters on a single line, and shall be of a type
   size large enough to be legible without the aid of magnification." CSC's
   importation of radio frequency amplifiers that were not certified and were
   not labeled with an FCC ID violates these sections.

    4. 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

    5. CSC  may request an interview at the closest FCC Office, which is

       Commission to determine if further enforcement action is required. Any
