                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Numbers: EB-09-MA-0050


   Document Number: W200932600044

   The Miami Office received information that unlicensed broadcast radio
   stations on 90.1 MHz and 101.1 MHz were allegedly operating in the Pompano
   Beach area. On March 18, 2009, agents from this office confirmed by
   direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequencies 90.1 MHz
   and 101.1 MHz were emanating from 779 SW 13th Ct., Pompano Beach, FL,
   33060, a property owned or managed by Cumm Partners, Inc. The Commission's
   records show that no license was issued for operation of broadcast
   stations on 90.1 MHz and 101.1 MHz at this location in Pompano Beach, FL.

   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 or mode of operation that
   complies with the standards established in Part 15 of the Commission's
   rules, 47 C.F.R. S:S:  15.1 et seq. The field strengths of the signals on
   frequencies 90.1 MHz and 101.1 MHz were measured at 44,047 microvolts per
   meter (uV/m) and 307,507 uV/m, respectively, at 111 meters, both which
   exceeded the maximum permitted level of 250 uV/m at 3 meters for
   non-licensed devices. Thus, the stations are operating in violation of 47
   U.S.C. S: 301.

   A spurious radio signal associated with the operation of these stations
   was detected on the frequency of 112.1 MHz. This frequency is within the
   radio frequency band assigned for communications between aircraft and/or
   aircraft and aviation ground facilities and therefore a spurious signal on
   this frequency could present an  air safety hazard.  This spurious radio
   signal ceased when operations on 90.1 MHz and 101.1 MHz were discontinued.

   You are hereby warned that operation of radio transmitting equipment
   without a valid radio station authorization or providing services and
   facilities incidental to the operation of an unlicensed radio transmitter
   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. S:S: 401, 501, 503 and 510).


   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.
