                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-FIELDSCR-13-00008793

   Document Number: W20133250001

   The Dallas Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio
   station on 102.3 MHz was allegedly operating in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
   On May 15, 2013, an agent from this office confirmed by direction finding
   techniques that radio signals on frequency 102.3 MHz were emanating from a
   residence in Forest Park, Oklahoma. The Commission's records show that no
   license was issued for operation of a broadcast station at this location
   on 102.3 MHz in Forest Park, Oklahoma.

   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 102.3 MHz was measured at 107,332
   microvolts per meter (uV/m) at 138.1 meters. This exceeds the allowable
   unlicensed limit of 250 uV/m at 3 meters established in Part 15. 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 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.)

   During the inspection, the station was disabled and ceased to transmit.


   You admitted being a disc jockey for the station, but stated that someone
   else owned the transmitter equipment. 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. In addition, you should provide corroborating
   documentation regarding ownership of the station and/or equipment,
   including full name and contact information for owner[1][Author ID1: at
   Thu Jun 13 07:57:00 2013 ]. 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.
