                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-10-MA-0087

   Document Number: W201032600041

   The Miami Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio
   station on 96.1 MHz was allegedly operating in the Miami area. On May 19,
   2010, agents from this office confirmed by direction finding techniques
   that radio signals on frequency 96.1 MHz were emanating from a transmitter
   and antenna on the roof of the Hilton Miami Downtown located at 1601
   Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL 33132. According to Miami-Dade property
   records, you are the owner of this property. During the inspection, the
   hotel management turned off the station. The Commission's records show
   that no license was issued for operation of a broadcast station on 96.1
   MHz at this location in Miami, 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. On May 19, 2010, the field strength of
   the signal on frequency 96.1 MHz was measured at 77,145 microvolts per
   meter (uV/m) at 473 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.
