                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-11-DV-0278

   Document Number: W201232800001

   The Denver Office received information that an unlicensed land mobile
   radio station on 458.350 MHz in the Brookings, South Dakota, area, was
   causing interference to the South Dakota State University police
   department's radio system. On October 4, 2011, an agent from this office
   confirmed by direction finding techniques and station inspection that
   radio signals on frequency 458.350 MHz were emanating from a residence in
   Elkton, South Dakota. The Commission's records show that no license was
   issued for your radio operation at this location on 458.350 MHz in Elkton,
   South Dakota.

   Radio stations must be licensed by the FCC pursuant to 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 of this illegal
   operation to severe penalties, including, but not limited to, substantial
   monetary forfeitures, 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.)


   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.
