                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-11-MA-0009

   Document Number: W201132600002

   The Miami Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio
   station on 96.1 MHz was allegedly operating in the Fort Lauderdale area.
   On January 21, 2011, March 8, 2011, and March 10, 2011, agents from this
   office confirmed by direction finding techniques that radio signals on
   frequency 96.1 MHz were emanating from an antenna mounted at 725 and/or
   729 NW 6th Ave., Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33311. Information received by
   this office indicates you are an operator of this 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 Fort Lauderdale,

   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 January 21, 2011, March 8, 2011,
   and March 10, 2011, the field strengths of the signal on frequency 96.1
   MHz were measured at 6,545 microvolts per meter (uV/m) at 764 meters,
   7,031 microvolts per meter (uV/m) at 784 meters, and 10,427 microvolts per
   meter (uV/m) at 441 meters, respectively, which exceeded the maximum
   permitted level of 250 uV/m at 3 meters for non-licensed devices. Thus,
   the 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 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). Be advised that this warning does not preclude this office from
   pursuing additional sanctions based upon our investigation of this


   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.
