                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-11-LA-0216

   Document Number: W201232900001

   On October 6, 2011, in response to an interference complaint from Verizon
   Wireless, an agent from the Los Angeles Office used direction-finding
   techniques to determine that a drifting radio signal around 836.5 MHz was
   emanating from the attic of your building in Tarzana, CA. During the
   interview with the FCC agent, a representative of your company
   acknowledged operating a Clear-Voice bi-direction amplifier ("BDA").

   Section 22.383 of the Commission's Rules, which applies to Public Mobile
   Services licensees like Verizon Wireless, provides that "[l]icensees may
   install and operate in-building radiation systems without applying for
   authorization or notifying the FCC, provided that the locations of the
   in-building radiation systems are within the protected service area of the
   licensee's authorized transmitter(s) on the same channel or channel
   block." A licensee's authority to install a BDA does not, without further
   authorization from the licensee, permit a subscriber to install a BDA.

   Verizon Wireless has informed the Commission that it did not provide you
   an authorization to install a BDA. Furthermore, Commission records show no
   license issued for operation of a radio station at this location on 836.5
   MHz.

   Operation of radio transmitting equipment without a valid FCC
   authorization or license is a violation of Section 301 of the
   Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and may subject the responsible
   parties to substantial monetary forfeitures, in rem arrest action against
   the offending radio equipment, and criminal sanctions including
   imprisonment. Because unlicensed operation creates a danger of
   interference to important radio communications services and may subject
   the operator to severe penalties, this warning emphasizes the importance
   of complying strictly with these legal requirements.

             UNLICENSED OPERATION 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 or have
   obtained consent from a licensed Common Carrier. To resolve the issue with
   respect to your authority to operate this device, and pursuant to Section
   403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, provide an explanation
   as to what has been done to correct the interference issue and to ensure
   that it will not recur.

   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.
