                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Numbers: EB-FIELDWR-13-00006836

   Document Number: W201332980007

   The Seattle Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio
   station on 1710 kHz was allegedly operating in Mt Vernon, Washington. On
   February 7, 2013, FCC agents confirmed by direction finding techniques
   that radio signals on frequency 1710 kHz were emanating from your
   residence in Mt Vernon, Washington 98273. The Commission's records show
   that no license was issued for operation of a broadcast station at this
   location on 1710 kHz in Mt Vernon, Washington.

   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 that complies with the
   standards established in Part 15 of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R. SS
   15.1 et seq. Your operation on frequency 1710 kHz was measured at 6,000
   uV/m at approximately 217 meters. This exceeds the allowable unlicensed
   limit of 100 uV/m at 30 meters established in section 15.223(a) for
   operation on 1710 kHz, 47 C.F.R SS 15.223(a), as well as the general
   unlicensed limit of 30 uV/m at 30 meters established in Section 15.209(a)
   for operation on 1710 kHz, 47 C.F.R SS 15.209(a).

   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.
   SS 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.
