                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-07-NY-017

   Document Number: W20073238027

   The New York Office received a complaint of interference from an FCC
   licensee regarding unauthorized operation on its frequency 469.575 MHz in
   Middle Island, NY. On February 23, 2007, agents from this office confirmed
   by direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 469.575
   MHz were emanating from your residence. The Commission's records show that
   no license was issued for operation on the frequency 469.575 MHz at this
   location.

   Radio stations must be licensed by the FCC pursuant to 47 U.S.C. S 301.
   The only exception to this licensing requirement is for certain
   transmitters using or operating at a power level that complies with the
   standards established in Part 15 of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R. SS
   15.1 et seq. No such exception is available for operation of radio
   transmission equipment on the frequency 469.575 MHz.

   You are hereby warned that operation of radio transmitting equipment
   without a valid radio station authorization constitutes a violation of the
   Federal laws cited above and could subject the operator 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.
