                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-09-DL-0112

   Document Number: W201032500011

   On February 2, 2010, agents from the Commission's Dallas Office of the
   Enforcement Bureau detected a broadcast radio station on 102.5 MHz
   operating in White Settlement, TX. The agents confirmed by direction
   finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 102.5 MHz were
   emanating from an antenna attached to your rooftop on your residential
   property in White Settlement, TX. You voluntarily ceased operations during
   an inspection of your station. The Commission's records show that no
   license was issued for operation of a broadcast station on 102.5 MHz  at
   this location in White Settlement, TX.

   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 102.5 MHz was measured at 904,143 microvolts per meter (uV/m) at
   363 meters, which exceeded the maximum permitted level of 250 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 THIS RADIO STATION MUST NOT RESUME.

   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.
