   Lauderhill, Florida

                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-09-MA-0158

   Document Number: W201032600009

   The Miami Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio
   station on 107.1 MHz was allegedly operating in Broward County, Florida.
   On September 25, 2009, agents from this office confirmed by direction
   finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 107.1 MHz were
   emanating from an antenna on the roof of a building at the Fairways of
   Inverrary in Lauderhill, Florida, a common area owned by the Inverrary
   Gardens Master Association, Inc. The Commission's records show that no
   license was issued for operation of a broadcast station on 107.1 MHz  at
   this location in Lauderhill, Florida.

   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 strength of the signal on
   frequency 107.1 MHz was measured at 17,286 uV/m at 306 meters, which
   exceeded the maximum permitted level of 250 microvolts per meter (uV/m) at
   3 meters for non-licensed devices. Thus, this station was operating in
   violation of 47 U.S.C. S: 301.

   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).

   UNLICENSED OPERATION OF ANY RADIO STATION MUST NOT RESUME.

   You have ten (10) days from the date of this notice to respond with any
   evidence that you had authority to operate granted by the FCC or with the
   steps you have taken to prevent the operation of any unlicensed radio
   stations from the Fairways of Inverrary. 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.
