                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-09-MA-0195

   Document Number: W201032600018

   On November 27, 2009, the Commission's Miami Office of the Enforcement
   Bureau received an interference complaint from AT&T Mobility ("AT&T") that
   a very strong interfering signal was seriously degrading communications to
   an AT&T cellular radio site in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. An AT&T
   representative indicated that the source of interference was emanating
   from a commercial building at 110 E. Broward Blvd, Ft. Lauderdale,

   On November 30, 2009, in response to the interference complaint, an agent
   from this office confirmed by direction finding techniques that radio
   signals, including those on 825.51 MHz, were emanating from an antenna
   installed inside your suite at the above referenced location in Ft.
   Lauderdale. After performing an inspection, the agent determined that you
   were operating a bi-directional amplifier ("BDA") or signal booster in the
   suite at the time of inspection. During the inspection, an employee turned
   off the device, and the interference to AT&T ceased.

   AT&T has licenses to provide cellular communications in the 824-849 and
   869-894 MHz bands. Section 22.383 of the Commission's Rules, which applies
   to public mobile service licensees like AT&T, provides that "[l]icensees
   may install in-building radiation systems without applying for
   authorization or notifying the FCC, provided that the locations of the
   in-building radiation systems are within the protected service area of the
   licensee's authorized transmitter(s) on the same channel or channel
   block."  A licensee's authority to install a BDA does not permit a
   subscriber to install a BDA, unless that subscriber has received explicit
   authorization from the licensee to do so. In response to an inquiry from
   an FCC agent, AT&T reported that it did not provide you authorization to
   install a BDA.

   Operation of radio transmitting equipment without a valid FCC
   authorization or license is a violation of Section 301 of the
   Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and may subject the responsible
   parties to substantial monetary forfeitures, in rem arrest action against
   the offending radio equipment, and criminal sanctions including
   imprisonment. Because unlicensed operation creates a danger of
   interference to important radio communications services and may subject
   the operator to severe penalties, this warning emphasizes the importance
   of complying strictly with these legal requirements.


   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 or have
   obtained consent from a licensed Common Carrier. To resolve the issues
   with respect to your authority to operate this device, and pursuant to
   Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, provide an
   explanation as to what has been done to correct the interference issue and
   to ensure that it will not recur; provide any agreements made with any
   cellular carrier to operate the system and include any relevant documents.
   Identify the make, model and serial number of each piece of equipment
   including the antennas if applicable.

   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.

   Section 22.99 of the Rules defines "signal booster" as a "stationary
   device that automatically reradiates signals from base transmitters
   without channel translation, for the purpose of improving the reliability
   of existing service by increasing the signal strength in dead spots." 47
