                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

                                         Case Number: EB-FIELDNER-13-00007768

                                               Document Number: W201332260002

   The Boston Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio
   station on 96.5 MHz was allegedly operating in Boston, Massachusetts. On
   March 21, 2013, agents from this office confirmed that radio signals on
   frequency 96.5 MHz^ were emanating from 68 Ormond Street in Boston,
   Massachusetts. The Commission's records show that no license was issued
   for operation of a broadcast station on 96.5 MHz at this location in
   Boston, Massachusetts.

   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. SS  15.1 et seq. The field strength of the signal on
   frequency 96.5 MHz exceeded the maximum permitted level 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. SS 401, 501, 503 and


   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.
