                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-10-CG-0106 Document Number: W201132320012

   On June 21, 2011, an agent from the Chicago Office returned to
   Springfield, Illinois to investigate operation of an unlicensed broadcast
   radio station on 105.9 MHz. It was confirmed by direction finding
   techniques that radio signals on frequency 105.9 MHz were emanating from
   the residence located at 1113 North 5th Street, Springfield, Illinois. The
   Commission's records show that no license was issued for operation of a
   broadcast station on 105.9 MHz at this location in Springfield, Illinois.

   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 105.9 MHz was measured at 601,218  microvolts per meter (uV/m)
   at  3 meters, which exceeded the maximum permitted level of 250 uV/m at 3
   meters for non-licensed devices. Thus, this station is 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).

   UNLICENSED OPERATION OF THIS RADIO STATION MUST BE  DISCONTINUED
   IMMEDIATELY

   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 numbers. 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.
